Essence Magazine recently published a great article I really loved called "Black Style Power" in their January, 2013 issue. The article showcases 5 Black designers who have definitely made it in the very competitive and ever changing New York Fashion Industry. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to share a little info about each designer the article featured here in my blog in a mini-series called, " Awesome Black Designers ". I encourage you to find out more about each designer on your own, and to visit the Essence website at http://www.essence.com to see more great articles like this one that truly inspired me to find out more!
