Fashion week is on and popping!
As I sit here and peruse thousands of beautiful photos of expertly designed pieces in beautiful colors, I could not help but wonder where and who are the Black Designers?
We discovered that for this month’s staging of the event, 70 Black designers will be presenting their collections but from that number, only 9 are officially listed on the NYFW website.
Today, The Haute Lifestyle will be shedding light on 7 of those Designers we found on the NYFW website (thus far) to give them some recognition.
The Jamaican born designer Carmichael Byfield who launched in line in the Netherlands, known for his bold prints and jovial personality will be back on the Runway with a special guest the world’s first down syndrome model Madeline Stuart! He will be presenting his Fall 2018 Collection. Big ups to you Carmichael! We are excited to see your bold patterns and colors “jaminate” the runway.

Datari’s eye for detail and extensive knowledge of color, fabric, and Silhouettes continue to be evident each season as he consistently reveals timeless, wearable pieces that evoke sophistication and elegance. Datari’s approach is deliberate, combining modern craftsmanship with vintage shapes, creating a look that is clearly his own.

The Brooklyn-born Jean-Raymond founded Pyer Moss in 2013, after freelancing for Marc Jacobs, Theory and Kenneth Cole and launching a political T-shirt line when he was only 15 (which he later sold to Urban Outfitters). Pyer Moss, which began as a men’s line and evolved into unisex and women’s offerings, has since drawn celeb fans like Rihanna and Issa Rae, along with football star and activist Colin Kaepernick, who wore a custom T-shirt from Jean-Raymond (listing the names of unarmed victims killed by police) on the cover of GQ.
