Free Your Mind…and the Rest Will Follow.

En Vogue put it best when they released  “Free Your Mind” in 1992, but it took America 16 years to let it sink in. This past November we elected our first black president, Barack Obama, and it kind of makes you ask yourself if people have really become more open-minded. I say all of this to talk about all of the diversity we see on the runways this season, and we’re not talking about the one token black. Designers that are apart of the revolution include, Betsey Johnson, G-Star Raw, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, rag & bone, Tory Burch, Y-3 and even Tommy Hilfiger, just to name a few. Check it out. (Pictures ordered as named.)

    this post makes me happy….it’s funny how long it has taken for black models to come up on the rise. of course there is still room for growth and exposure of black beauty but progress?? I mean the all black issue of the Italian Vogue was a big feat lets hope for more in the near future.
