The 2017 Pitch Black Fashion Show was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Marietta Georgia and featured fashions from some of the areas trendiest designers. PBFW was founded by Shay Pate of Scripted 1 Clothing Line to not just provide an outlet for up-and-coming designers, but more importantly to give a voice and a platform to women who have been victims of domestic violence. The show was inspired by Pate’s friend and lead model Vanessa Banks, who was murdered by her then boyfriend after a domestic dispute.
I was truly inspired not just by the empowering fashions that were on display, but also by the testimonies of the women who had been victims of domestic violence and were able to come out of those situations and raise their voices so that their stories may help others.
