“I'm inspired by anything black. Black artists, musicians, activism. James Baldwin, Angela Davis, David Hilliard, Nina Simone—they inspired a project I just did, where each one inspired a look, but you wouldn't know from looking at it. I'm not trying to be so straightforward. If that were the case, I would just take my research and put it on a graphic T-shirt. The thing that informs all of my work is the black experience. That's just how my brain works, I can't help it. It's exciting to know that some people get the reference, no matter how secretive or subtle it may be.”

It seems like every week a fashion brand is rallying behind a political candidate, collaborating with a nonprofit, or announcing a new sustainability initiative—in other words, companies are trying to prove they are more “conscious.” Being “conscious” has become a talking point. Credit the current political climate or the idea that customers want to shop their values, but more and more designers are being vocal about where they stand on certain issues, and companies are increasingly transparent about their business or manufacturing practices. ×
Fashion still has a lot of work to do when it comes to diversifying its talent pool. In February 2015 only 2.7 percent of the designers on the New York Fashion Week calendar were black, according to The New York Times; by February 2018 that statistic was still under 10 percent, per The Cut. And there have been regular reminders why this is critical: Designer products resembling blackface or nooses have sparked calls for boycotts and increased demands that companies take steps to diversify and educate their employees and provide new opportunities for people of color. Amid the headlines and outcry, black fashion designers keep doing the work: creating and advocating for more inclusive fashion through their products and every single facet of their business.
“Politically, it's really important for us to represent the importance of community building among women. We find ourselves working with women, women of color specifically—female photographers, female creative directors, women from all [specialties]—that's really important for us because so often I feel like women are not represented, even in the fashion industry, the way that they should be. Working with youth is another thing that's really important for Darlene—she's an educator outside of being a designer, so I think she feels growing up here that our youth is often forgotten about and we need to start there.”

While hippy styles were born in the ’60s, they developed in the ’70s to become a key look for the decade. One of the most famous styles of the era, hippy outfits often featured unique, colourful designs. While cuts were kept simple and styles remained casual, the trend was bold and expressive. Denim, suede, bright prints and patterns, and flares all played a significant role in the trend. Although full hippy outfits can appear overly excessive in today’s environment, elements from the style can easily be incorporated to create a chic and modern, hipster look.
“I think that every single designer needs to really be aware of how many of the things that they’re making already exist in landfills. We have a responsibility to only bring things to life that are going to live extremely long lives. For example: A lot of people are like, 'Oh, it's vegan leather'—well, vegan leather is plastic, and plastic breaks. It's not good for clothes, there's no longevity. I want to always challenge my fellow designers, creative people, and really people of all industries to say: If you're going to be manufacturing these things, how can these things be leaving a positive impact? Not just a neutral impact or a negative impact—a positive impact.”

While crisp, clean white provides the perfect canvas for any glam look, don't be afraid to take inspiration from your jewelry box and pepper your space with bold and rich color. Pink furniture is a classic pick for glam home décor and pairs easily with amethyst and aquamarine, but consider colors inspired by sapphire, ruby, emerald, or tanzanite to add an extra layer of lavishness to your space.
I used to be terrible about replacing my mascara on the regular, but that problem has now been solved thanks to Amazon's Subscribe & Save program. I asked my makeup artist friend for a mascara recommendation and she suggested I try this one. She did not steer me wrong! The waterproof version of this mascara *is* truly waterproof; I run and work out all the time while wearing it and have never had a problem with my mascara running. It can stand up to a LOT of sweat.
