Urban fashions are more than baggy pants

You may not know his name, but you’ve probably seen his style.
Designer Renaldo Nehemiah says he’s outfitted rappers Chingy and Kanye West, along with model Eva and others. On Saturday, he was among the many designers at the inaugural Urban Fashion Week at the
Blake Hotel.

Charlotte is one of several cities, including Houston, who have an urban fashion week. Dozens of models showed off the latest designers, ranging from denim to overcoats to hoodies and more.

Nehemiah, born Renaldo Nehemiah McFarland, recently moved here from Miami, and he attended Olympic High for one year. Nehemiah, who does everything from wallets to shoes, said his newest venture is on the hush-hush, but you’ll see it soon.
