Naomi Osaka, Willow Smith and More Star in Levi's Black History Month Campaign
Titled “Beauty of Becoming,” the video series charts the individual journey to success.
Levi’s has announced a new campaign, “Beauty of Becoming,” set to roll out as a series of videos beginning in February for Black History Month. Made in collaboration with filmmaker Oge Egbuonu, the series spotlights athletes, musicians and fashion industry icons recounting their personal journeys to success. “I took inspiration for this collaboration from the many people I’ve spoken to over the last few months who were searching for ways to become more of themselves during this transformative moment in history,” Egbuonu said. “I realized no one is born a hero….Everyone, no matter their background, must evolve through a process of becoming.”
The first episode will feature tennis star Naomi Osaka, followed by Tremaine Emory of No Vacancy Inn. Willow Smith will star in a video celebrating Women’s History Month, and Jaden Smith will speak on sustainability and environmental justice. Designer Melody Ehsani, stylist Karla Welch and Egbuonu herself will also make an appearance.
