NYFW Black in Fashion Fall 2019

As I attempt to juggle several balls in the air for Black History Month this year, I promised myself (and you) that I would revisit and update this series for New York Fashion Week. Here we are, and ironically in the midst of a scandal that makes it all the more timely that we highlight a few current Black designers and fashion influencers. With all due respect to Spike Lee, who called for a boycott of Gucci and Prada over their recent blackface debacles, how about we cancel those labels and focus on building the brands of a few of these Black designers?

It is just a one-day miniseries this year, so here is the index of designers who are presenting at NYFW (February 6-13) and who are also featured on the Busy Black Woman social media pages today.



Harlem's Fashion Row

Jason Rembert (Aliette)

LaQuan Smith


Studio 189


Virgil Abloh

I'm adding one designer as an Honorable Mention this year:
Christian Siriano
