Harlem's Fashion Row (HFR) is a 5-year-old organization whose mission is to increase diversity in fashion and to provide support and education for emerging designers within Harlem’s community. Last night Steven Kolb spoke at an event, called "Conversations," for HFR in Harlem at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (which literary fiends may be excited to learn is also the resting place of Langston Hughes’s remains.) Kolb was interviewed in a one-on-one format by HFR's founder, Brandice Henderson. The evening served as an educational forum for those in the audience who have their sights set on design and future CFDA membership. (Not to mention we learned five cool things about Steven Kolb himself. Like that he used to play football. Seriously.)
