Gospel recording artist Latice Crawford hits the runway during New York Fashion Week for famed fashion designer Byron Lars Beauty Marks on Monday, September 12 at Metropolitan West.
Lars personally selected Crawford for his new collection, “Exclusive Inclusion Spring 2017 Collection,” empowering body-positive redefinition of fashion’s future.
“I am honored that Byron chose me,” says the BET “Sunday Best” Season 2 alumna. “I love fashion and beauty and his clothes are simply amazing.”
Lars has rendered fashion designs for First Lady Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, Angela Bassett, Anika Noni Rose, Gabrielle Union, Katheryn Winnick, Cicely Tyson, Natalie Portman, and others.
In addition to her exciting Fashion Week adventures, later this month, Crawford will release her new single, “Choose Me” from her EP, Diary of a Church Girl, which debuted at No. 15 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart.
“’Choose Me’ is a song about our human need and desire to be accepted–accepted by our families, accepted by our friends, accepted by our significant other, accepted at your place of business,” Crawford, who has battled social anxiety disorder, explains.
“That’s where I was when I wrote it. I was trying to navigate through this journey called life in an industry, religious denomination and social culture that said I should look this way, act that way, walk like this and talk like that. I didn’t feel like I fit the mold and I didn’t feel like I fit in,” she continues.
But nowadays, the wife and mom is walking in total freedom after making a discovery that changed her life.
