During the New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 show at Harlem Stage, designer b michael and CEO Mark-Anthony Edwards saluted the SonEdna Foundation and the memory of E'dena Hines for their efforts to promote the literary arts and writers of all genres and backgrounds in the Delta, in Mississippi, and throughout the world. 

The venue, a registered landmark and former water-pumping station, provided a romantic backdrop for the Spring 2016 designer collection. Beneath an arch of softly glowing tiles, the audience assembled to see the collection, which included a blend of uptown glamour and downtown whimsy, with silhouettes that meet at the intersection of ballet and hip-hop, reflective of the bon vivant culture of Harlem. The color palette evokes urban flower boxes, where impressionism converges with urban graffiti, designed for women and men in the present tense in honor of the occasion.
