A fashion designer's path to success is often paved and supported by the press. A stellar review or fabulous fashion spread can help thrust a collection to the spotlight, into stores and ultimately into your closet.

It's for those reasons and more that Brandice Henderson, Harlem's Fashion Row founder and CEO, hosted an intimate breakfast to introduce this year's featured HFR designers to member of the fashion press.

EBONY fashion director Marielle Bobo and EBONY fashion editor Ericka Goodman, Essence.com fashion editor Celia Smith and TV personality Kela Walker were just a few of the media mavens on hand for the event, which took place last week.
