The Inspiring FASHIZBLACK–Our new partner!


After browsing most fashion magazines already on newsstands, we realize that we do not identify with all of them. On one hand, popular magazines sorely lack diversity. On the other hand, Africa-centric magazines are rare gems.

After these few observations FASHIZBLACK was born, halfway between these two currents.

From street wear to red carpet, recommendations to issues related to the fashion industry, we have discovered this ambitious project to explore EVERYTHING that fashion governs, from near or far. If the word “BLACK” seems community in some respects, the more we are reassured.

With a tone sometimes satirical, daring but always honest, the content of this magazine surpasses all colors of skin, because they want UNIVERSAL consideration and influence–like the fashion of which they speak. More than a claim, they hope that through the stylists, models and other fashion professionals which they discuss, awareness is done at last.

In sum, FASHIZBLACK’s priority will be given to people who value and appreciate Afro-Caribbean roots fused with Western culture. Our ultimate question is: ARE YOU FASHIZBLACK ?
