Blavity x Yemzi - '6 Black London-based Fashion Designers You Need to Know This Fashion Week'

Wow, to be listed as a designer to know on Blavity makes me feel proud (which if you know me is a rare occurrence). With London being one of the world's most innovative fashion capitals and the hoards of hopeful fashion designers that it homes like myself it is an honour to be noticed. Whilst models of colour are underrepresented on the runway I have to thank blavity for highlighting talented black designers because I'm struggling to name two which are scheduled for September London Fashion week.
