Black History Month: Honoring 21 Black Fashion Designers

Black History Month allows us to remember and honor the past as well as celebrate the immeasurable contributions and achievements of the Black diaspora.

During Black History Month, SIGNATURE BRIDE is celebrating Black fashion designers who are gaining recognition in the mainstream wedding space. From emerging, rising stars to established couturiers, we salute the Black designers who, with their immense talent and creativity, are paving the way and bringing their own style and aesthetics to the wedding industry.
