Taking Points: Is Fashion Racist?

Hosted by: Marc Lamont Hill | Guests: Beverly Johnson; Supermodel | Brandice Henderson-Daniel; Founder & CEO of Harlem’s Fashion Row | Julee Wilson HuffPost Black Voices Style & Beauty Editor | Michaela Angela Davis; Editorial Brand Manager @ BET/Image Activist | Shiona Turini; Fashion Market Director; Cosmopolitain Magazine

This in depth interview takes a look at the intricate relationship between fashion, race and culture. There are many points brought to the forefront of this conversation that need to be discussed throughly amongst ALL people in the fashion industry.  More often than not, these issues are pushed aside, which allows things to continue on in the way that they have for years. The video is 30 minutes long, but anyone who loves fashion, wears fashion, purchases fashion (which is basically every one of us) needs to at least be aware, and alert to these issues. I have witnessed many of them myself during my 15 years in the industry, and this is the first time I have heard them all put on the table in a way that searches for solutions as well as a way to educate people on what is really going on.

Girls, let’s keep the dialogue open. Let me know what you think of the video!

Happy Friday!
