Fashion is a global industry with so much talent from all over the world. However, the industry only sticks to the mainstream markets that contribute to global sales in the industry. Markets like New York portray the New Yorker aesthetic that creates clean-cut designs and a minimalist that are staples and essentials into many. London has a more creative vibe with voluptuous layers, artsy patchworks, and a unique British “code” that’s recognizable.
Representation is important. When a young black girl looks into a magazine, watches tv, or listens to the radio; their hope is to find some role model that resembles her. Someone that looks just like her and emulates the characteristics that she hopes to acquire someday.
