The event will spotlight Jaidyn Tate, Tammy Willis, Toni Rochelle, Vanessa Jackson and Christina Alexandria as part of its roster that day.

Confident Catwalk will also showcase women-owned vendors, entertainment and DJ Joaquin Andrade “mixing the hottest music to set the atmosphere on fire” said Tate.
