The Black fashion movementSM

The Black Fashion MovementSM challenges the narrative that Black fashion designers and Black-owned fashion brands are not accessible for consumer consumption through the execution of authentic, creative, and diverse interactive in-person, social, and virtual experiences. Our mission is to normalize fashion collections and entities designed, developed, and owned by BIPOC populations by cultivating meaningful partnerships, developing innovative strategies, and executing high-level events.

The Black Fashion Movement SM is a digital resource created to preserve, promote and celebrate the cultural influence of African-Americans in the global fashion industry while providing a platform for emerging top Black fashion designers to showcase their work.

The Black culture is influencing the fashion industry and taking it to the next level. From Black-owned fashion designers to Black fashion influencers. We are dedicated to showcasing and promoting Black-owned fashion brands and designers.

FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA TRIBUTE TO A MOVEMENT: fashion trends started by the black community

The Black Fashion MovementSM was created in February 2020 as a grassroots social media campaign to celebrate, promote, and support Black-owned fashion brands during Black History month. Due to the discovery of many amazing Black-owned brands, the movement continued. Through our daily posts, we have created a community of fashion designers, fashion entrepreneurs, stylists, fashion industry executives, and fashion enthusiast that share the vision of normalizing buying and incorporating Black-owned fashion brands into their everyday wardrobes. We host monthly virtual interviews with fashion industry insiders, including celebrity stylists, designers, psychologists, and authors. Today, the movement has included establishing retail experiences and opportunities for Black-owned brands.
