KMonet wants to put Fresno fashion on the map.

As the owner of Styles by KMonet, a local online boutique, she has collaborated with 10 other local brands and designers on a show Sunday (Jan. 9) at Full Circle Brewing Company.

At least 30 models from the Fresno area will take to the runway. Besides the runway show, the event features local R&B, soul, and hip hop performer Brian Cade.

The goal: Provide an opportunity for fashion entrepreneurs to network with other local, designers, creators, and artists.

“That’s why I named it the ‘No’ Fashion show because it’s everyone that’s in the fashion industry in Fresno and were available to volunteer their time,” said KMonet.

Fresno’s Fashion Potential

KMonet grew up in Fresno fascinated with clothing. As a little girl, she would cut tops and jeans out of magazines to create unique stylings.

After moving to the Bay Area for college, KMonet studied business and then dabbled in retail management and visual merchandising.

Now that she is back in Fresno, KMonet says she has big plans to bring fashion to the city where she grew up starting with hosting her first fashion show.

“When we think of Fresno, the models here, they don’t get opportunities like this and they’re just as excited as the brands are,” said KMonet. “I was researching the last time a fashion show was here in town, and it was only one brand and they didn’t even give the accessibility for other brands to be a part of it.”

COVID Can’t Stop Fashion

“I have always thought about the what-ifs, especially in the world we’re living in right now,” said KMonet about staging the event during the pandemic. “You just never know. So I make sure to have backups. We have over like 15 backup models that will be there just in case.”

KMonet says the local brands have met on Zoom weekly to plan out the event, setting COVID protocols, including requiring masks and spacing out seats.

Participating Local Fashion Brands

Local fashions brands Celfie Ready, King Kulture Clothing, House of Morri, DED, Dos Fashions, Haus of Essentials, NLC Glam Studio, and Human First will show their clothing.

House of Francisco will close out the show with ballroom gowns.

More Information

The show is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Full Circle Brewing Company, 712 Fulton St.
