Baltimore native, artist and curator Cheyanne Givens created an event called 1914 affair where artist can express there talents, network and wear there best clothing that represent them. Last night I was able to attend the event and it felt like Afro punk after dark. When arriving we were greeted with a live band that were playing all the classics, then taking photos with the pixilated machine. During the 4 hour festivities there was live performances from known artist around the city with a band playing there hits. The crowd was very energetic and waiting patiently to see who was best dressed male & Female. Strangers With Style presented the recipients of the 1914 Affair’s annual male, female, and couple “Best Dressed” awards. Music artist Mike star won best male while wearing a fur and cool glasses.
The city of Baltimore need more positive energy and events like this. It gathered all creatives all in one room. Lastly there was a live rap cypher simarliar to the BET hip hop awards that took place. When guest we’re hungry they were different apeitizers walked around by beautiful models then meat balls and vegetables & wine was served. I look forward to the 6th annaual 1914 affair next year because it’s full of black excellence.
