Fashion Week might not be back to its former state just yet, but black designers are still forging ahead ruthlessly and The Black in Fashion Council’s NYFW Showroom returned virtually thanks to IMG and featured 12 Black designers that we believe you should know.
Lindsay Peoples Wagner, editor in chief of the Cut and co-founder of the Black in Fashion Council (alongside Sandrine Charles) told Vogue: “It is people that really have a great portfolio, a great perspective, and who are really bringing something to the table that feels like it’s breaking through the noise of what’s already out there. We also want to give this opportunity to designers who are really invested and who really care about making sure that their brand is successful and has longevity.”
Below, meet the brands showing their latest collections through the Council’s showroom.
