Cleveland's Got Style: Great Lakes Fashion Week Kicks Off With Accessory Show
Co-owner of Great Lakes Fashion Week LaShonda Reed getting primped for the show. Reed started the company in April 2013 with her twin sister Shalonda and longtime friend Amanda Krieg. After walking in New York shows, LaShonda was disenchanted by the less than friendly attitude of other models and designers. Her goal for Great Lakes Fashion Week was to “put on a show where everyone feels welcome and the girls have support.” She wants the models, some of whom are young and just starting out, to feel empowered and encouraged. She also wants people to know that Cleveland has something to offer the fashion world.
