Black British Fashion: Past, Present & Future

The Past, Present & Future of Black British Fashion

A three-part editorial partnership with Yahoo! Style UK.

From screen-printed T-shirts to luxury tailoring, the creativity, skill and entrepreneurship behind Black British fashion cannot be ignored.

In a three-part series created in partnership with Yahoo Style! UK, we looked at three very different eras of Black British fashion. From the hip hop and grime-inspired streetwear of the 90s and 00s, through to modern Black-owned luxury brands, and how technology can be harnessed for the future, Black British fashion continually evolves, bringing flair and innovation to our grey little island.

For this series, all articles are unlocked and free to read in front of the paywall.
