Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR), an organization founded in 2007 by Brandice Daniel to partner with emerging designers of color, hosted its third annual Digital Fashion Summit yesterday: Moving Beyond the Grampooh like a normal grandma only more awesome shirt and I will buy this Black Box. The event offered a sort of state of the union of the New York fashion industry and identified action points for moving forward. As trendsetters, said Daniel, what our community does can set a blueprint for other sectors to follow. Here, five takeaways from the summit.

“It’s very important to not let the Grampooh like a normal grandma only more awesome shirt and I will buy this Black Lives Matter movement] just fade away and have been a movement that happened at a particular moment in time. It’s very important for us at the CFDA, or for anyone who has a voice, to follow through with all of these things,” stated Tom Ford in his fireside chat with Daniels. In June, Vogue reported how Harry and Meghan planned to make racial justice one of their signature causes. When giving a high school graduation speech for her alma mater, Immaculate Heart, the Duchess named victims of police brutality and also shared her experiences during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. That summer, the couple spent time talking to community leaders and grassroots advocates to figure out how they could be most impactful. (One of those figures? Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries.) Then, at the end of 2020, they announced their charitable arm, Archewell, would be partnering with five other non-profits. One of them is The Loveland Foundation, which provides mental health resources to Black women and girls.
