SURROUND SOUND OF FASHION 2017 Featuring Live Performance by American Rapper Dave East



Surround Sound of Fashion took place on Sunday October 1, 2017 at the Reva and David Logan Center For The Performing Arts. The event sponsored by Power 92 and DTLR was a complete success as the SSOF team produced ‘what-a-show’ at their 9th annual fashion showcase. This year’s event, themed “Fashion Motion Picture”, featured numerous Chicago based designers, models, dancers, and musicians. DEF JAM recording artist, Dave East, also made an appearance as the headlining guest artist for the evening. There was even a “ fashion Motion picture” alcoholic beverage served at the Vip lounge bar sponsored by EFFEN VODKA. (OKAYYY!) The killer combination of style, music, and dope visuals made Sunday night’s show, one to remember.

The night kicked off with a vendor marketplace that included well-known brands like SAMSUNG and State Farm insurance. Also present in the marketplace were new and  exclusive Chicago based clothing brands such as CamBino and Maebane apparel. A few other brands to note were Threadest, Def Rugs, and Dazzle Lips each bringing their own unique products, and setting the mood for the later main stage production.

It wouldn’t be called the SURROUND SOUND of fashion if there wasn’t music involved. During the fierce, in-sync, model walk some of the hottest music in Hip Hop and R&B was played by DJ Nephets and Deangelo King to create the total SSOF experience. Other musicians like Kevin Byrd (Guitarist) And Lil Sharp (Violinist) also took the stage alongside the fierce models leaving the crowd in a music infused fashion frenzy. After an event filled with twists, turns, and on edge fashion the guests certainly left feeling satisfied and eager for future events. The rumored SSOF tour is sure to be a successful movement if it’s anything like Sunday nights production.
