Black Fashion Fair Debuts First Magazine, Celebrating Black Culture's Impact on Fashion

The magazine showcases “Black style and culture in the fashion editorial space as an act of justice.”

Black Fashion Fair has released its first magazine, Volume 0: SEEN, a visual exploration of Black culture’s impact and representation in the fashion industry. At a hefty 200 pages, the physical archive is testament to Black artists’ influence on fashion, as the pages “are about collaboration and the power of community,” Antoine Gregory, Black Fashion Fair founder and SEEN editor-in-chief, said in an exclusive press release

Featuring the work of creative visionaries like 24-year-old photographer Quil Lemons, former Reebok global creative director Kerby Jean Raymond and luxury designer Brandon Blackwood, the magazine showcases the global impact Black designers have had on the fashion world, preserving their immense contributions to an industry that often overlooks or co-opts them without proper recognition. Volume 0: SEEN “pay[s] homage to the oft-forgotten designers and tastemakers who have helped Black creators realize their dreams, reimagin[ing] and reconsider[ing] the fashion image — the Black fashion image.”

Black Fashion Fair’s first magazine was created with the support of Innovative glasses startup Warby Parker. “It’s been an honor to partner with Black Fashion Fair on their first magazine. Every page is an inspiring testament to their commitment to community and creativity, a belief that Warby Parker shares,” says co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal in a press release.

Now sold out, Volume 0: SEEN retails for $95 USD through blackfashionfair.org and at Mulberry Iconic Magazine during New York Fashion Week. The limited-edition acrylic box set and photo print is available for purchase for $300 USD.
