On Sunday, February 28, 2016, Sigma Upsilon Nu went apologetically black in honor of their 6th Annual Fashion-N-Fierce Black History Fashion show…

The show, according to the House of ΣΥΝ Facebook page, featured designers Vero Modero, Moondance Boutique, PREY, Paisley Daisy, Second Nature, Bomshie and Finale Couture. There were also special Donations given by GQueue Inc. & Evolve.  The music featured was presented by DJ Allnite of Allniteradio.com

These haunting images also provided a politically conscious backdrop throughout the duration of the show…

B Y T E Dreams Slade’s mother, Myasia Bugatti Gans was also present.  Like her daughter, Gans is well known in the SL community for her public relations efforts, particularly as it relates to Ground Level Radio.  She, along with a host of other onlookers, looked on as both male and female models strutted their stuff across the runway.  Please take a look at these awesome photos:
