On Saturday, November 12, the Poze Bazaar Foundation will hold its annual fashion benefit at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex. [BJCC] East Room at 7:30 p.m.

This year’s theme, “The Golden Age of the Harlem Renaissance,” will celebrate and support Birmingham’s creative arts community and raise money for the organization’s grant and scholarship fund to benefit underserved youth and organizations. Non-profit with limited funds.

Poze Bazaar’s first charity event was held in 2017, but this year’s show will be its first as a non-profit organization.

La’Vinnia ‘Vee Monet’ Holliday, founder of the nonprofit Poze Foundation, said her goal is to be more than a gatekeeper in the art and fashion industry; her mission is to open doors and provide resources for middle and high school students.

“I want students to have the opportunity to present their creations, even when they are in non-traditional niches. I want visual artists to have a platform that they can look forward to showcasing their work,” said Holliday.

He added that the shows are multifaceted and include canvas and visual artists, musicians, actors, dancers, fashion designers and writers; [it’s] about more than just fashion; it is a collective that comes together,” she said.

Holliday said she chose the Harlem Renaissance for this year’s fashion benefit theme to honor special guest Brandice Daniels, whose company is called “Harlem Fashion Row.”

“When Brandice Daniels first moved to New York, she always loved fashion and went her own way to create opportunities for other designers of color to connect them to the industry…and her company called ‘Harlem Fashion Row.’ , I think I thought it would be great to put this show around the Harlem Renaissance and the jazz and cultural influence of that era on fashion,” Holliday said.

VIP ticket holders can expect a VIP pre-show mixer/meet and greet with Daniels. Regular ticket holders will have access to the art exhibit, silent auction, red carpet and fashion show presented by local designers, stylists and boutiques.

“We will also have a live artist painting a new piece during the experience and selfie walls,” said Holliday.
