... the other Black experience

my situation. i am often asked why aren't you rich. I reply I am. they then go on to say with all your talent you should be a multi millionaire. I know what the problem is . you keep using black models and that's what is holding you back. Im tired of the countless discussions  with people that look like me about how important it is for us our men and women to be loved cherished and adore. glorified. this is my part to us. they say you stick by a race your race that doesn't stick by you.   i just don't know the last part is true but it still doesn't change my heart and beliefs. i have three daughters. they need to know i see them and every other black brown and every shade of black out there we see you.    thoughts family. do i venture out or stand my ground.

Hi Nyeta! I'm also a fashion designer. I don't think it's about your choice of using black models. It takes time and years to build a business and many people think it happens overnight so you'll be a millionaire no doubt! In regards to showcasing black models in your brand I definitely don't think it's a minus. The fashion industry as we know isn't diverse and as a designer of color it's the perfect avenue to showcase beauty in all colors. Keep doing your thing!
