One word to describe the weekend: Wow!
The weekend was full of good vibes, great people and positivity. It was amazing to see so many companies such as Dr. Martens, Lip Lock Gang, Tune Heads and 4th Lane Clothing come together to give Columbus an upscale fashion experience in a trendy manner.
Heart of It All is a group of Ohio State students who have identified a need to culminate the state’s fashion innovators into one event in Columbus to assist with the prominence of Ohio’s image in the industry. It’s crazy to think that Ohio is still considered “on the come up” of being considered a state full of fashion innovators like NYC or Chicago – especially with events like HOA happening.
I honestly find it hard to believe that this was HOA’s first big show and some of the models were getting their debut! I could see the HOA Fashion Experience being an annual event that will continue to grow and bring in people from the major fashion cities to see that Columbus can play the fashion game just as well – if not better.
