Rochester’s Passion 4 Fashion

Everyone Knows Angela!

Just about everyone knows the name Angela Simmons, except for me when I conducted my interview with her on September 1, 2013 at the Passion 4 Fashion show.

Did I say, “Simpkins?” Instead of “Simmons!”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched Run’s house nor can I tell you how I followed Run DMC growing up so I know exactly who ‘Angela Simmons is’.

Maybe after interviewing hundreds of celebs, Ms. Angela Simmons: popping red lipstick, her 6-inch star-studded stilettoes, and her always fashion forward presence had taken my breath away. Yes, I do sometimes, as many other interviewers can become ‘Star Struck’. There I said it. And trust me when I say that does not happen to me often, but Angela was gracious.   Thank you, Angela


Celebrity Angela Simmons hosted Passion 4 Fashion. King Entertainment, local designers and organizations got together to show off their talents on the runway.  On the runway there was a mix of culture and style, which was put on display to support and encourage local boys and girls from the area.

“I’m a huge supporter of the Boys and Girls Club. In fact, I recently worked with a few other Boys and Girls Clubs in different areas,” explained Angela.

Larry king who is the fonder of Passion 4 a Fashion stated, “Any celebrities I bring will have to sign a contract saying that they would do some youth outreach and go in and talk to the kids and give them feedback because this is basically to inspire the kids and show the inner city kids and the suburban kids that there is a way out.”

All The Proceeds from Passion 4 Fashion will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Rochester.
