Plus, its seat is topped off with faux fur for a little luxe allure.

“When things shifted politically a few years ago in the U.S., it was important to me to I speak out, because I could see that a lot of marginalized communities were going to be really affected, including several of the communities I’m a part of. I felt that, as someone with a platform—albeit a small one—it was still my responsibility. Still, on a weekly basis, we upset people.”

“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.”

Seeing people like Okpo, James, and Campbell succeed by remaining steadfast in their beliefs and working to make this industry better gives me hope, yes, but it's more than that: It gives me a road map. Here, Okpo, James, and Campbell detail how they integrate their social political beliefs into their fashion—and why other designers should do the same.
In the ’70s, aerobics began to rise in popularity and, as a result, sporty-chic fashion became a major style. The trend, which is somewhat an original version of today’s athleisure look, combined comfort with style for a relaxed yet elegant appearance. More specifically, the look favoured minimalist shapes and silhouettes and injected casual wear with athletic styles, such as sports jackets, sneakers, jogging suits, caps, and T-shirts. This trend is easily wearable thanks to sports luxe looks. To add a more original feel, simply include some identifiable 70’s details, such as a turtleneck sweater, to your outfit.
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. ×

That doesn't mean the work is easy. I recently founded my own business, The Folklore, an online retail concept store that stocks brands exclusively from Africa and the African diaspora. Already I’ve had to defend the earning potential of African designers to prospective non-African venture capitalists and investors, who were convinced that they wouldn’t sell well among non-African audiences. (Most of the pieces on my site have sold out.) I’ve argued against long-standing stereotypes that paint Africa’s business climate broadly as corrupt. I’ve invested my own money to launch the company, trusting that my vision will translate.

“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.”


When you find yourself looking through a set of toiletries and accessories for the right makeup, brushes, and everything else in the morning, it’s time to get organized. With this vanity table set, you’ll not only be able to organize your important items, but you’ll also have a designated space of your own that looks like a scene out of a movie. It’s not just you looking gorgeous: Freshen yourself up to start a day with energy and a gorgeous look with this equally gorgeous dressing...

Add a glitzy touch to your master suite with this vanity set, a perfect place to get ready in the morning. Turned detailing on the legs add a traditional touch, while a scalloped apron introduces an eye-catching aspect. Four organizational drawers give you plenty of space to tuck away makeup, hairbrushes, and other accessories, while a three-paneled mirror features hinges to let you adjust it with ease. An upholstered seat is also included.
Start with the show stoppers – a glam bedroom set, chandelier dripping with crystals, or velvet sofa – and add shimmering accents, fluffy textiles, and art deco-inspired wall décor. Select pieces with embellishments such as nailhead trim on a glam chair, tufting on an ottoman, or sequins or intricate embroidery on throw pillows to add even more eye-catching detail.

I LOVE this mascara. I have been using it for years. I have tried expensive mascara from high end brands, and everything in between. This is one I always come back to. The formula is great, but I think it’s the brush that does the real magic. I have even thoroughly cleaned the bottle and brush of an old bottle that I was done with, and used the brush with one of my crazy expensive name brand mascaras. The formula does start to get a little clumpy when it starts to get old, or if you keep using too many layers (and I mean like 5 or 6 layers). Thinking about stocking up...just in case they take it away or discontinue it for some reason...
Accent your new glam vanity with a glittering, comfortable seat in the Michael Amini Melrose Plaza Vanity Bench . This square bench features a wide seat that's padded with plush foam. The frame is crafted from flattened steel slats and finished in a mirroresque polished chrome. Soft gray fabric upholsters the seat. The edge of the piece is trimmed with a multitude of tiny glass crystals and glimmer in the available light. 

Start with the show stoppers – a glam bedroom set, chandelier dripping with crystals, or velvet sofa – and add shimmering accents, fluffy textiles, and art deco-inspired wall décor. Select pieces with embellishments such as nailhead trim on a glam chair, tufting on an ottoman, or sequins or intricate embroidery on throw pillows to add even more eye-catching detail.
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.
