NYFW has come and gone and while we’re all still sifting through the beautiful collections of designers and dreaming up new additions to our wardrobes, I will be adding additional musing to my mood board. No, not a specific collection or material or cut, but color….BLACK. Yes black as in ‘All Black Everything’ a la Jay-Z, and wearing black in order to help lead a more colourful life. But the most important reason that Black has such a powerful presence to me this month is of course Black History Month.
While yes I am appreciative that we have this month to look towards our past in order to gain perspective for our future. We must never forget, that our history no matter where it might originate from, can in no way be summed up in one month.
While I have been waiting patiently to see a few BHM inspired shoots from my fave magazines or at least their online web content, it never happened, so what’s a girl to do other than create what she wants most.
Without further a due, some very well deserved NYFW street style shout outs to those boys and girls who worked those Lincoln Center steps and proved to the world that black community’s love affair with fashion is more than just doorags and tight sweats.
Please let me know if you know any of the stylish people in these pics, I’d love to tag the appropriate people and give love where it’s due….
