When you consider which celebrity or public figures wear black designers, who comes to mind first? I would guess political figures like Michelle Obama and Vice President Kamala Harris. Of course, you probably also thought of Beyoncé. However, there are many celebrities who show support by supporting designers of color. Since it is Black History Month, Fashion Reverie curated some looks for our viewers of some celebrities that we find super stylish and that are making some fashionable choices with black fashion designers.
