Natural Hair: Ascribing Value to The Economy of Our Existence - CulturalGrassroots.com

Natural Hair: Ascribing Value to The Economy of Our Existence - CulturalGrassroots.com | Black Fashion Designers | Scoop.it
[photo from Un-Ruly.com] What goes around comes around. Just in my lifetime, I have witnessed Black people, Black women more specifically, turn back to their natural hair repeatedly. Think about it: 60-70′s Black is Beautiful, late 80′s-90′s the Lock phenom sprung from Fort Greene and Harlem, and now, the second decade of the 21st century,... Read more »
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

The first "natural Models' were disowned by family.. jeered by  community. They would not have passed teh paperbag test... I'm not sure that the history of 'natural" hair is understood by many... and I'm learning that  "natural" does not necessarily mean teh same thing to everyone... 

Natural hair did not become a mainstay till the  1960"s Natuarlly  1962...  which was "a Peer to peer" social movement. A marketing campaign that launched with the use of the Tag line "Black is beautiful'. it is ironic the image used still shows a skewed value system...  

"there were no jet Models in Jet and no ebony Models in EBONY-" a quote froom the video ... http://youtu.be/A3Pw85qbknc ;
You can find info and links to other research http://www.bonniesandy.com/blackisbeautiful2013 This unedited video was taped on the 50th Anniversary... and picks up at 1963 in what was essentially a marketing campaign by artist for artist to convince Blacks to Buy and shop "BLACK" The conversation with Kwame On the 50th anniversary has stuck with me - and has influenced my commitment to finding long term solutions.  Few who Fly under that natural hair care, who take the right to wear their hair natural, or even live by or profit from the Business of "Black Is Beautiful" even knew that January 28th was is the anniversary of "naturally "62... 2022 will be the 60th and I wonder where we will be in that journey.  In reviewing this clip I am reminded of the importance in securing our history and legacy... and will recommit to these creative salons, both live and online.

When Stella Jean was prepping for her SS14 collection last year, the unexpected happened. Giorgio Armani decided to lend his support to the über talented designer with a 550-show seat space at Mila... References to life as a Haitian woman is made with textures, clashing patterns, A-line sixties-styled skirts, trapeze jackets (our favorite) and maxi shirtdresses that loosely shapes around the figure.
