They are the most trendy individuals in the industry and they design even more trendy clothes.

Long-standing problems in the fashion business include a lack of inclusivity and diversity, which affect not only Black models but also designers themselves. It doesn't matter if they've been in the industry for years or are only now seeing success—these bright innovators are striving to shift the discussion in spite of the obstacles they've encountered. Together, they have clothed notable celebrities, made a splash during fashion week, and produced genuine pieces of art while adhering to their aesthetics and ideals.

Romeo Hunte

Beyoncé, Saweetie, Keke Palmer, Michelle Obama, Zendaya, and Saweetie have all sported Hunte's creations. He's known for frequently wearing the buffalo-check pattern, as seen on his jeans in this photo, and his outerwear makes a statement.

Carly Cushnie

Numerous famous people, including Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Selena Gomez, Ashley Graham, Lupita Nyong'o, and Michelle Obama, have been spotted sporting the chic looks of designer Carly Cushnie. The New York Times called Cushnie "one of the most notable Black-owned brands in American fashion," opening doors for Black women in the industry. The world was surprised when Cushnie had to close owing to financial difficulties brought on by the epidemic because her sleek lines and luxurious fabrics were absolute "wow" creations. Thankfully, the designer is still producing, albeit in a smaller-scale manner. Designing a collaboration with the renowned American Girl dolls is among her most recent projects. Additionally, it came at the perfect time given how well she has been raising her children at home.

LaQuan Smith

He's a true celebrity favorite. Proof? Beyoncé, Rihanna, and countless others have all sported his designs. Basically, turn to LaQuan Smith for any glam or sexy attire requirements.

Yes, RiRi is the founder of not one, but TWO fashion lines, and you already know that. While Fenty provided extremely pricey clothing before regretfully closing in 2021, Savage X Fenty offers reasonably priced and size-inclusive lingerie (though it lives on as bomb beauty brand). She became the first woman—and the first Black woman—to lead her own independent brand at LVMH with the launch of the latter.

Christopher John Rogers

The Louisiana designer, who is only 28 years old, has already clothed prominent women like Cardi B and Michelle Obama. His most recent design is a whimsical Target collaboration that features cheerful yellow dresses, floral prints with puffed sleeves, and the trendiest combination of gingham and plaid. He won the American Womenswear Designer of the Year award at the CFDA Fashion

Awards in 2021.

Dapper Dan

The made-to-order garments that the Harlem designer produces in his own studio are essentially associated with the hip-hop stars of the 1980s and 1990s. He has worked with Gucci and is renowned for adapting designer logos into his clothing. Even his memoir, in which he discusses his life as a Black designer and how he established his now-famous boutique on 125th Street, is available.
