BET's Rip the Runway ...

Filed under: On the catwalk, Designers

BET's third annual Rip the Runway premiered last Tuesday. And it was amazing.

Diddy opened the show by defining fashion, specifically black fashion, saying, "It's not just the clothes; it's the lifestyle; it's the swagger ... Urban fashion is at the forefront of style around the world." BET's tagline for Rip the Runway is "black fashion," but that's really just a label, like preppy or geek chic. The fashions were about attitude and confidence -- traits that aren't bound by skin color.

Collections by Missy Elliott, Zac Posen, Snoop Dogg (and Mrs. Dogg), Nelly, Diddy, and more were showcased by models who truly strutted their stuff down the runway, dancing to performances by artists like N.E.R.D., Flo Rida and T-Pain.

Be sure to check out the galleries from the show. I'm telling you, if I had my choice of runways to watch (or walk -- you hear that, Nelly?), this would be it. The music, the attitude, the passion evident in everyone from the designers to the models to the performers ... it was just fabulous. If you missed it, you can still watch the entire show on BET's website and go through the rest of Styledash's coverage of Rip the Runway.

Hi my name is Christopher Sallie a fashion designer from Detroit now based in Atlanta. I'm very interested in attending Rip the Runway fashion show, but i don't have passes for it. If you could be so so kind and let me know how to get passes for the show, i would be so so greatful!! My flight is already booked for the weekend of the 21st. I would hate to miss out on all the excitement, so i'm coming to New York anyway because this is what i live for. Call me a dreamer but i truely live for the expression of individuality, the designs, the new colorful ideas, and the diversity that brings us all together as designers...Have a HEART & send me a pass or two, but i would be happy and greatful with just one. Thank You & be BLESSED!!!!!
