Everything You Need To Know About The ‘Black In Fashion Council’

BY 

As the nation continues to protest for Black Lives Matter, the fashion and media industries are being called upon to eliminate systemic racism in their fields.

In recent weeks, brands and companies have come forth with numbers on Black executives and employees through the #PullUpOrShutUp initiative, with many falling short on Black representation.

Now, the newly formed Black in Fashion Council is demanding accountability and trackable results from companies for actionable change.

 

Founded by Teen Vogue editor Lindsay Peoples Wagner and Sandrine Charles Consulting founder Sandrine Charles, the Black in Fashion Council aims to “represent and secure the advancement of black individuals in the fashion and beauty industry.⁣

As a collective, we envision a world in which black people in fashion and beauty spaces can be open and honest, guaranteed equal rights, and be celebrated for our voices,” reads the mission statement.

“While we are working on our end, we encourage people in the industry to rise to the occasion to sustain long-term change.”
