“AFROPUNK Bash and AfroTastic Catwalk”

 

Who could resist checking out an event with that title??!  Apparently, not me!

I recently attended this event at the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle (NAAM), which was being held in conjunction with a current exhibit entitled “Afros:  A Celebration of Natural Hair”.   The event was presented by NAAM, AFROPUNK, and Good Hair Salon.

The room was completely packed, shoulder-to-shoulder, wall-to-wall.  I was in the back and not in a great location for quality photography (especially since I’m not very tall) but, sometimes, you have to work with what is available.  They had photographers of their own who were in the best photographic positions, and rightfully so, of course.   I thought I would still post these just for fun, in spite of the challenges to compose, or even crop down to, a decent photo.

After the catwalk, some of the models were posing for photographers…..

And, then, there was dancing.  I left shortly after the dancing started, but took a couple of snapshots before leaving….
