Trendsetter: Coyon Ford!

Noun 1. trend-setter - someone who popularizes a new fashion, fashion arbiter, taste-maker, role model, a model - someone worthy of imitation;

There are very few people that I, myself would consider trendsetters. This is only because I am usually the one setting trends and the characteristics of a trendsetter are very easy for me to spot.

It is one thing to be different. But if no one is emulating you and this uniqueness that you are expressing, then are you really a trendsetter?

In the case of a young gentleman, by the name of Coyon Ford, he is definitely a trendsetter and his trendsetting characteristics were highly visible, the first day that I met him in 2006, when I assisted his Sean Jean | Parisian | Indiana Black Expo Fashion Show, rehearsal.


Today, Coyon Ford can be known as the same humble spirited, midwest fashion show producer, apparel stylist and extremely talented person that has worked 3 shows for the S/S 2011 Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. The fashion liaison that ran around with Serena Williams, the majority of the day, met Andre' Leon Talley, and was involved in a mix of elite fashion professionals that made celebrities such as, Vera Wang, Kanye West and more only a phone call away.

After talking with Coyon, I found out that he has set a very high standard for himself and he feels that, "competition is not with my peers, I compete with myself". Coyon, feels very blessed, appreciative and grateful to have experienced all that he has over the past 10 years and is looking forward to the projects that await him in the coming months.

The city of Indianapolis does produce the talent to maintain themselves in the big industries, Are You Inspired?
