Fashion week is finally here! And while watching some of the industry’s baddest models rip the runway in latest trends is exciting, we are looking forward to seeing collections from the designers of color on this year’s roster.
From the romantic style of Tracey Reese, to the sophistication of Rachel Roy, to the dynamic duo behind Mataano — we are highly anticipating what’s to come.
It’s no secret that female designers of color — and models for that matter — aren’t highlighted nearly enough in this industry. We can only hope that representation at events like fashion week and spreads like Vogue Italia‘s The Black Allure continue to grow and show the world that global style is more than just a little dress. We may still have an enormously long way to go, but we’d like to bask in the little triumphs for now.
