Hosted by WBNS anchor Angela An and special guest Mayor Michael B. Coleman, the show was one hour of what is making Columbus a mecca for fashion. “How do you like this hotel I built for you” said Mayor Coleman, to the delight of the audience. Here’s the roll call of designers:

1. Genoveva Christoff
2. Quintessa Ezell
3 Erica Dawn Woodmore
4. Josie Wills
5. Gary Jones
6. Makayla Cook/Olivia Vanscoyoc
7. Shann Cortes
8. Shirley Weng
9. Ryan Richmond
10. Eugene Frimpong

Many of Columbus All-star models were walking this runway including crowd favorite Akilah West. Many have rated Miss West the best runway walker in Columbus and maybe one of the top ten in the country.

New York quality is what most local fashion shows in Columbus aim for, but not many reach that plateau. The CMH fashion show continues to compete with The Columbus College Of Art And Design’s yearly soirée as one of the years best in the Cbus.
