The Black Anna Wintour

The Black Anna Wintour Fashion Avenue News Magazine Editor-in-Chief has been entitled The Black Anna Wintour for her coverage of Fashion events.

Sofia Davis, aka The Black Anna Wintour, is the Chief Executive Publisher of Fashion Avenue News, Model World Magazine and The Fashion Dynasty magazines. She is also a successful Fashion Week Show Producer. She is a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology. With an energy matched only by Oprah, she has created a Fashion Media Conglomerate. Sofia has loved fashion from the time she could reach the Chanel No. 5 on her mother’s dresser. Before attending FIT, she won the Uptown Saturday Night evening wear designer award with a Black Feathered “Bob Mackie” type Cocktail Dress. Sofia noticed a need in the Fashion Industry to include models of all sizes, heights and weights, which lead her to create her own model management company. She came to the attention of a Producer from the World Famous Apollo Theater and was hired as Director of the Apollo Models. She held that title for 10 years. Every Wednesday she would provide 15 models, hair stylists, fashion designers and makeup artists. While at the Apollo she created BTE TV (Beauty Television & Entertainment). The Fashion TV show aired daily reaching an audience of approximately 350,000 viewers. Constantly looking to improve the quality of opportunities for fashion models of all sizes, in 2011, Sofia began publishing Fashion Avenue News magazine. A GLOBAL, LUXURY BRAND, different from the rest. She would feature UNKNOWN models of all sizes on the cover and in the editorials. This was an instant hit, as local models and designers were looking for a platform. Sofia explains “I never go after the celebrity, although we have had plenty on our covers, this magazine is for the undiscovered fashion industry talent”. With the growth of Fashion Avenue News, from 0 to 430,00 (email subscribers) 4 years later she created Model World Magazine, a publication that focuses on models and their careers, a year after that she created The Fashion Dynasty – a lifestyle magazine that features numerous topics and editorials. All of the publication can be purchased on Magzter.com, which is the largest global digital publication platform, reaching 30 MILLION as well as on www.FashionAvenueNews.com Sofia is the Producer of Fashion on the Hudson, an independent Fashion Industry show similar to NY Fashion Week. This show, now in its 20th year, registered over 32,000 attendees last year. She gives back to the Fashion Community with a FREE New Year’s Party at the Holiday Inn. Sofia is also known as the Black Anna Wintour and the First Lady of Fashion – always wearing her signature Sunglasses. This lead her to create Bling Darling, a collection of Swarovski Embellished Couture Sunglasses, for people that love Bling. Sofia has covered Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Paris & Milan and Black Paris Fashion Week. She is known as the Fashion Mother as she is constantly mentoring models and designers. Feel free to contact Sofia at [email protected] – she is always interested in hearing from you.

When designers audition for FIFI FW we turn garments INSIDE OUT. A good quality garment should be able to be worn on the outside as well as the inside,……… meaning it should look just as good on both sides. Construction is the KEY………..

We provide a Private VIP Press/Media Lounge, Model Lounge, (with finger food) Showroom area for Desk Side appointments, All Day Shopping experience for Designers, Editors Bags for Media doing interviews. ***

This is why we are BEYOND HONORED to have 11 YEAR OLD Jayden Allyn Washer (JAW) from Florida join FIFI FW. I have not met Jayden in person yet, but I can tell you he is a professional. From the moment we were contacted, his team has delivered all we asked for, Full Page Ad, Entry Fee, Collection looks, he did not skip a beat….. HE IS PREPARED….

Jayden is only 11 years old and he drapes, cuts and sews his OWN COLLECTION…. and conducts his OWN PHOTOS SHOOTS...... This is not done by his parents.

Get your tickets for FIFI FW and come and see this FABULOUS 11 YEAR OLD DESIGNER turn the fashion industry on it’s ear!!!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Fashion Folks and Family: I am sincerely grateful and honored for being nominated for the Best Independent Publication. However, I feel obligated to DECLINE the nomination, after careful thought and consideration. I feel that ALL the nominated candidates deserve the title as BEST INDEPENDENT PUBLICATION.

We all work extremely hard to meet deadlines, conduct shoot photos, work with editors, HUMA and Models. It is not an easy task to undertake, there are many sleepless nights, therefore, ALL DESERVE THE AWARD and I believe ALL should have it.

The purpose of (most) Independent Publications is NOT TO GET ATTENTION FOR THEMSELVES but to create a unique platform for undiscovered fashion industry talent. To have a place photographers’ can get published, to be a home for models and designers whom would otherwise have the doors closed in their faces because the “INDUSTRY” feels they are not the “STANDARD”.

Fashion Avenue News Magazine is NOT in this business to be BETTER than anyone else, it’s important that we are BETTER THAN WE WERE LAST MONTH, that is OUR goal. To be the HOME PAGE for unknown fashion talent, to be the ONE you can COUNT ON when you want to get published. To be the one to kick down doors so we can ALL WALK THRU THEM, TOGETHER!!!!

Our goal is to build a connecting BRIDGE among the Independent Publications so we all can strive for GREATNESS, to be the NEXT ASSOCIATED PRESS, CONDE NAST, OR GETTY, that, is what Fashion Avenue News is all about.

We can do it, if we do it together. #STRONGERTOGETHER

With this said, I wish all the Nominates good luck and I will happily purchase a ticket to cheer you on.

Fashionably yours,

The Grande Dame of Fashion

GRANDE DAME: A sophisticated woman of influential position within a particular area. A woman who has earned her place in history. A woman of great prestige and ability.
