When you pair dope fashion with the latest tunes you are guaranteed a good time and last week VIBE gave us just that for the close out of Black History Month!
On Thursday, Vibe Magazine held their 1st Annual Style and Sound Honors Night Brunch at Caribbean Social, located in Brooklyn, New York. The exclusive event was to honor current notables that impact the fashion and music industry. The honorees included; InStyle Magazine’s Beauty Editor-at-Large, Kahlana Barfield-Brown, Spotify Global Head of Music Programming Tuma Basa, celebrity hair stylist Tish Celestine, award-winning UK rap star Stefflon Don, celebrity wardrobe stylist Rachel Johnson and Hot 97 Music Director and radio personality TT Torrez who were awarded by VIBE Editor-in-Chief and host for the evening Datwon Thomas along with Bonsu Thompson. The night was nothing but Black Excellence. Take a look

After the sit down dinner which was amazing by the way (highly suggest the upscale restaurant) it was time to turn up one last time for BHM. We partied until 1am thanks to the skills of Olivia Dope and DJ Goldfinger (pictured above).
We had to take a picture with fab honoree Kahlana as she is my fellow Bison. HU!!!!
See you next year!
