A spectacular line-up of African and African American talent ruled the runway of the Puck Building last Tuesday, at Absolut Africa's Fashion Outreach gala. The designer Montgomery, who recently opened a shop just a few blocks from the Puck, was honored with a first-ever Absolut Style Award, having been recommended for that laurel by Fashion Outreach, a not-for-profit organization that works toward improving minority representation in the fashion business. The invitation read "festive" and attendees happily complied, decking themselves in a glittering array of millennial costumes.
