It’s bias moments like this that plague our industry why b michael AMERICA uses its voice to speak out and stand up for inclusion, our silence would be a betrayal to all Black fashion designers in the luxury space.
Fashion’s Racial Divide! Never stop doing your best just because someone doesn’t give you credit!
Susan Fales-Hill wearing American designer B Michael in this October Vanity Fair fashion icon feature, no credit by the editor was given to B Michael in the feature, its also extremely bias that a link from the fashion feature leads to a dress in SAKS by St John Knits, it took us a long time to develop a voice, now that we have it we are not going to be silent!
Ann Lowe, Arthur McGee and many others pioneers before B Michael fought for justice. In 2018 Black fashion designers are still pushing for economic empowerment and racial equity in the global luxury fashion space.
Diversity is not Equity!
We will only grasp the staggering potential of our time if we create opportunities that empower ALL people to participate, regardless of background, country of origin, religious practice, gender, sexual orientation or color of skin. It’s time for all industries to intentionally transform their Diversity & Inclusion efforts to include Racial Equity ownership matters.
“We are grateful to Susan Fales-Hill for her integrity and inclusion of Black fashion designers.”
