RuPaul’s DragCon NYC is an annual drag exposition held in New York City, which debuted in September 2017. … The event is an outgrowth of the internationally successful RuPaul’s Drag Race, which generated Drag Race Thailand, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, and Chile’s The Switch Drag Race.
To get the most bang for your buck, get there as early as you can and visit as many booths as possible. Obviously, that’s not entirely realistic (or recommended for everyone), so here’s the basic what-to-know about the weekend.
Panels are some of the most exciting parts of DragCon. This is where you can hear some of your favorite drag queens chime in on a variety of topics, with everything from Broadway to fashion to political activism.
They’re also the perfect way to get off your feet for a bit and hear some candid conversations between panel speakers. You’ll likely learn some new things, whether it’s a backstage moment during Drag Race or a new makeup tip.
The event also honored Ciara, Mobolaji Dawodu, Law Roach and Mikki Taylor
and showcased fashion designers Kapasa Musonda, Bishme Cromartie, Miko Underwood and Prep Curry.
On Thursday, September 5th, Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) hosted their 12th Annual Fashion Show and Style Awards Dinner at the One World Observatory in Manhattan. Celebrity guest Jay Manuel, Shameik Moore and Model JoAnie Johnson was in attendance.
The evening began with the exciting HFR Style Awards dinner that honored Ciara, Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, producer, model and actress.
She was the recipient of the Icon 360 Award, which recognizes individuals who inspire and contribute to the advancement of minorities in all areas of fashion, beauty, business, philanthropy and entertainment.
