We partnered with The McLeod Community Garden in Brownsville, Brooklyn to collaboratively host a safe space for neighborhood children to celebrate Halloween. The children came dressed in their most creative costume with their parents for fun activities, food and music. The best costume winners were ALL of the children, it was just too hard to decide. Thank you to all of our supporters.
The McLeod Community Garden has been providing fresh food production, promoting community involvement and overall beautifying the neighborhood for many years in the Brownsville Brooklyn Community.

Fashion enthusiasts, artisans and local entrepreneurs converged for an eight-hour extravaganza of style, creativity, and entertainment during New York Fashion Week in Southampton's Agawam Park. The day was an exquisite departure from previous cloudy skies, with the sun shining down on the vibrant indoor and outdoor showcase of talent.
Sponsored exclusively by T McDonald Cosmetics, the event served as a platform for budding designers to showcase their collections, as well as provide them the opportunity to broaden their scope of supporters in the fashion world. The event was hosted by Robert Gibbons. Featured on the tent enclosed runway was Shinnecock's own Kayla Lookinghorse, M97Til, JFlex Eyewear and headlined by IFLYUNIVERSE. Various vendors proudly displayed and sold their unique creations, demonstrating the rich tapestry of the local fashion and restaurant scene. Fine art was also exhibited by The African American Museum of Nassau County curated by Minna Dunn.
With a warm welcoming greeting from Southampton's Mayor William Manger Jr. and Trustee Robin Brown, the event featured celebrity guest DJ FunkMaster Flex. For two hours, he set the stage on fire with his infectious beats. The mic was then handed to spoken word artist Melody Ruiz, aka "Poetic Melody", who entranced the audience with her poetry. She served as the perfect segue for comedian A.G. White. A.G.'s humor, timing and skilled storytelling had the audience in stitches. The three combined added an extra layer of excitement to an already memorable day.
Photographers were in their element, capturing candid moments and highlighting the essence of the event. These snapshots will undoubtedly serve as lasting memories of this remarkable occasion.
Back to the Tents was a resounding success, uniting local talent, celebrity charisma, and splendid weather, leaving attendees with lasting memories and a deeper appreciation for the fashion and art industries and its remarkable community.
