Hi all! Atlanta’s 4th annual Culture Shock Fashion Show is on Saturday October 17! As I just moved to Atlanta, I’m so excited to attend the Culture Shock Fashion Show for my first time! The Culture Shock Show is a spectacular event that showcases art, talent and fashion from different cultures, creating a positive reflection of cultural appreciation in the diaspora. Culture Shock is about educating the community and connecting new artists, musicians, business owner and designers from all over the globe – especially Africa, America, Asia and Europe.
The idea of “culture shock” originated from the definition and knowing personal experiences of those who found themselves at locations halfway around the globe, suddenly being subjected to unfamiliar cultures and ways of life. This year the show is taking the audience on a cultural journey with the theme: “Africa Meets Asia.” The show will highlight the similarities of African and Asian cultures.
The mission of the Culture Shock Show is to promote cultural appreciation and expose artists to empowering altitudes. This event provides the perfect networking platform not only to designers, models and musicians, but for businesses of all sizes as well. The show uses choreography and fashion to tell stories of how culture has evolved over the years. The Culture Shock Show does this with future generations in mind, hoping to bring tomorrow’s society together through something as simple as ART.
Please join me in attending and supporting these artisans. I hope to see you there!
