Soon to be known as the ‘Oscars’ of the black beauty and fashion industry, Black Beauty Communications recently launched the Black Beauty and Fashion Awards™ at the House of Commons this summer. Hosted by Chi Onwurah MP, the opening event welcomed industry movers and shakers and a flurry of social media influencers.
“The Black Beauty and Fashion Awards promote equality and celebrate diverse beauty, giving consumers of black beauty products a voice that can be heard clearly.
“We have come a long way – there are now supermodels with darker skin tones. But there is still a long way to go.
“Black beauty will be political until the day it is seen as normal. My hope is that the Black Beauty & Fashion Constituency Award will help to make that day come sooner.” said Chi Onwurah MP.
All types of businesses within the beauty and fashion industry may be nominated from event organisers, makeup artists, barbers, stylists, salons to boutiques, authors, designers, curators and more.
