Beyond Women's History Month: Black Women Fashion Designers You Should Know
GET TO KNOW THE BLACK FASHIONISTAS WHO ARE BRINGING THEIR CREATIVE GENIUS TO THE FOREFRONT OF THE INDUSTRY.
Women’s History Month may be over, but we recognize Black women all year round (24/7, 365 Days) for their numerous contributions to society, culture and our daily lives. We at Essence, want to make sure that celebration continues, so here, we focused our attention on Black women in fashion—bringing to your attention the many emerging Black women-owned brands/ designers who style our world with their artistic talents, beautiful clothes, and eye for style.
We believe it’s important to spotlight these women and their brands, as fashion can tend to be a male-dominated sector. So, we’ve compiled a list of a few fantastic ladies, breaking into the fashion industry. From Fe Noel’s vibrant flowy gowns, to Anima Iris’ pantone colored bags; these tastemakers are keeping the doors open for other Black women to walk through. From high-end and artisanal brands to more accessible and suitable brands, we got you covered.
Get to know some of these stylish minds, check out their brands, give them a shout-out, or better yet, spend a coin or two!
