It’s a perfect time to throw more weight behind the Black Is Beautiful movement. Pop superstar, Rihanna is the talk of the world currently for her fashion brand and the fact that she is taking everyone by surprise by venturing into different business first with her beauty label.
The launch of the Fenty Maison gave hope to women that it could be done, multiple chains of businesses can be achieved but with one step at a time. The million dollar question was how did the inspiration for the designs and looks for the Fenty collection come about? Well, we can all rest now as the Barbadian, real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty took time to reveal the inspiration behind some of the designs.
She pointed fingers at 1960s African-American photographer, Kwame Brathwaite who spent most of his life painting the perfect bright picture about Black people through documentaries and more, and also co-founded modelling group, Grandassa Models.
The group’s sole aim was to push the beauty and the culture of black people in the States and the rest of the world.
