We’ve shut down our website for the week of 6/8/20 and ask that you divert your money towards the Black Lives Matter movement and to black-owned businesses.
Something we’ve recognized for a long time now is that if it weren’t for the incredible and powerful support of black stylists & editors like Jason Bolden, James Carroll, Solange Franklin, and Nicole Chapoteau, along with black artists & celebrities such as Solange, Michelle Obama, Yara Shahidi, and Beyonce- you probably wouldn’t even know who we are.
