    (BPRW) Macy’s Salutes Culture-Defining Eras of Black Style in Celebration of Black History Month 2014

    - Famed fashion editor and style expert Constance White will lead panel discussions surrounding Black style along with fashion icons including supermodel Beverly Johnson and actress Tracee Ellis Ross as part of a nationwide Macy’s in-store event series -


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- This February, culture-defining trends take center stage as Macy’s (NYSE:M) examines the influence of Black style in celebration of Black History Month 2014. From the Harlem Renaissance to urban wear and high-fashion glamour, Black style has influenced popular culture for decades. Through special events and panel discussions at select Macy’s stores across the country, style experts and thought leaders, such as famed fashion editor Constance White, supermodel Beverly Johnson and actress Tracee Ellis Ross, will highlight the uniqueness of Black fashion and how many of these styles have been adopted, reinterpreted and reinvigorated by new generations, inspiring countless fashion-savvy ladies and gentlemen of today.

    “As a retailer with more than 150 years of fashion history, Macy’s has seen the evolution of Black style firsthand and we are thrilled to examine and celebrate the style icons and trends that have defined generations, in honor of Black History Month,” said Martine Reardon, chief marketing officer for Macy’s. “As part of our annual celebration of the cultural and historical contributions made by African-Americans, these series of events will take a meaningful fashion journey through time, highlighting Black style influences past, present and future.”

    For more than 15 years, Constance White has defined her legacy as a fashion reporter and style guru for women, especially African-American women. She has served as a fashion reporter for the “New York Times” and editor-in-chief of “Essence”. Now consulting editor for Silicon Valley start-up Ozy.com, White also made history as the first and only black executive fashion editor at a major fashion magazine, “Elle”. With her new guest role as lead panelist at select Macy’s stores, White will share her insight into popular trends originating in the African-American community, current style leaders shaping the fashion landscape and her advice for pulling off some of the most popular trends seen on the sidewalk and the catwalk.

    “Black culture has impacted style around the world from the rich Holland cloth of Nigeria to the cool turbans young women and men are wearing in every American city. It’s a style that’s rich, innovative and cool. I’m excited to join Macy’s in giving it its due,” said Constance White.

    Macy’s Black History Month Celebration 2014 also coincides with the 40th anniversary of Beverly Johnson’s historic “VOGUE” cover. In August 1974, Beverly became the first black model to grace the cover of the iconic magazine. This event broke the color barrier in the fashion world, forever changing the beauty ideal in the fashion world and paved the way for future Black women in the fashion industry. A long-time entrepreneur and hair and fashion influencer, the “New York Times” has named her to their “20th Century’s 100 Most Influential People in the Fashion Industry” list.

    “I was very excited to learn that Macy’s is devoting a great deal of time and energy to the subject of Black style and how it influences pop culture,” Johnson commented. “Tracee Ellis Ross and Constance White always have something insightful and entertaining to offer, and I look forward to appearing with them.”

    Following the panel discussion, Macy’s will host a reception for its customers along with an informal fashion show highlighting recreated trends from different style eras.

    The Way We Wore: Black Style Then


    In The Way We Wore: Black Style Then, Michael McCollom chronicles African-Americans fashion from the 1940s through today. Featuring snapshots of over 150 black men and women's most unforgettable "style moments", the book includes personal photographs taken from the author’s own family and circle of friends including Oprah Winfrey, James Baldwin, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Tracy Reese, Patrick Kelly, Kimora Lee, Bobby Short, Bethann Hardison, and Portia LaBeija, among countless others.

    The Way We Wore: Black Style Then


    From brides glowing in white dresses to bachelors in bell-bottoms, these photographs encompass the tremendous variety of fashions begun by the African-American community and guided international fashion culture. Some outfits are dynamic and outrageous—elaborate hairstyles and chunky shoes, enormous earrings and funky glasses—yet their wearers' vitality and pride leap from the page. Other styles are striking in their elegance and composure. World War II servicemen in their uniforms, women in haute couture gowns, children dressed for Sunday morning church service; gorgeous shots like these transcend fads, engendering the book with a sense of heritage and history befitting the legacy of African-American style and culture. The Way We Wore is both a marvelous journey from Harlem Renaissance to Hip-Hop, the celebration of the innovative and captivating history of African-American fashion over the past century.

    Fashion Designer Launches Kickstarter Funding Campaign to Get Contemporary Clothing Line Catering to Tall Women into Major Department Stores

    - HEIGHT GODDESS Selected for Coveted "The Workshop at Macy’s” Program -


    DALLAS (November 13, 2013) – With petite and plus-sized clothing lines becoming increasingly more prominent, it’s somewhat surprising how little attention is paid to the tall female fashion market. HEIGHT GODDESS (HG), a contemporary clothing line that caters to the beauty and uniqueness of tall women, has worked since 2007 to meet the fashion needs of women 5'9" and taller through its online boutique. Since being selected from over 1,000 applicants to attend the coveted “The Workshop at Macy’s” program in New York, HEIGHT GODDESS has an opportunity for expansion by being sold in major department stores. To assist in accomplishing this longtime goal, company founder Lameka Weeks has officially launched a Kickstarter online funding campaign that will run through Dec. 19th.

     Lameka Weeks
    HEIGHT GODDESS founder Lameka Weeks


    “Tall women have been shopping with us online and now they may have the opportunity to purchase HEIGHT GODDESS in department stores all across the nation,” said Lameka Weeks, the 6’1 visionary and founder of HEIGHT GODDESS. “The Kickstarter funding campaign is a big deal because we really need the financial support to meet our goal of expanding. Although we may seem like a large company, we are only a two-person operation simply trying to help women with height feel more confident and beautiful in fashionable clothing that fits their taller than average bodies.”

    From stylish jeans and pants to classic dresses and tops, HEIGHT GODDESS is eliminating the need of tall women having to shop in the men’s clothing department. Ranging in sizes from 4 to 20, the items featured in each collection are proportionally designed on tall fit models to ensure they are tailored specifically for tall women. The HEIGHT GODDESS Fall/Winter 2014 collection features the Charlotte Dress Pant, the Victoria Wide Leg Trouser, the Heather skinny jean in various colors and the Moto Jacket.

    “Tall women aren’t just taller than average-height women, our bodies are also shaped differently. So it’s not just about lengthening a sleeve it’s about considering broader shoulders and an elongated torso too,” said Weeks. “The HEIGHT GODDESS clothing line is created in-house which gives us complete control regarding the fit and design of every piece.”

    The HEIGHT GODDESS Kickstarter campaign will run through Dec. 19, 2013 with a goal of raising a minimum of $20,000. By making monetary pledges, supporters will help place the chic and contemporary line of clothing on the racks and shelves of major department store retailers. For donations of $25 and more, supporters will receive gifts that include fashionable HEIGHT GODDESS graphic tees, necklaces and weekender totes. All funds raised through Kickstarter will be applied towards purchasing equipment needed to place HEIGHT GODDESS in department stores, hiring additional staff to support the new demand and expanding the HEIGHT GODDESS collection to include highly requested styles and color options.

    “The success of our Kickstarter campaign will show major retailers that tall women are a viable market for having clothing in their stores,” said Weeks. “We receive lots of feedback through social media from fans expressing how much they love the clothes and how HEIGHT GODDESS has changed their lives, so we’re really hoping they step up along with the overall community and support by pledging to our campaign and spreading the word.”

    Cultural Pride Is A Fashionable Asset
    - Two beauty pageant winners set a tone for social cohesion as they display cultural fashions in the forefront during their humanitarian missions. -


    TEKAY DESIGNS



    Self pride is beneficial for individual self-esteem. In some cultures, showing pride is almost mandatory to illustrate one's love and appreciation for community or a cause. In the world of pageantry, contestants are quite selective over the pageant gown that is worn as it is an anticipated segment of the pageant. Judges and audiences typically expect contestants to wear traditional pageant gowns and wardrobe. However we found two accomplished women (Ms. Florida America 2013 - Amanda Wamunyima and Ms. America 2013 - Chiniqua Pettaway) who embrace ethnic fashions and display cultural pride in their community.

    Cultural fashions are more prevalent in ethnic-based pageants. A dynamic new trend is the expression of cultural fashions in the world of mainstream pageantry. Today's popular Media channels have a reputation for portraying less than stellar images of black women. Being an American Black woman in this era is a critical issue, because so many expectations exist that are very insulting concerning black women. Along with the excessive use of the "N-Word" that permeates many African-American social scenes. The airwaves and social networks are filled with images and language that suggests young black girls are to emulate music Video Vixens, Gold Diggers or they are modern Jezebels; to be addressed using the "b-word". However, we have found two accomplished women who offer a positive image, and they defy these negative stereotypes while displaying cultural pride as community heroines.

    Ms. Wamunyima (a first-generation immigrant from the country of Zambia) sparked a trend when she not only wore an ethnic-inspired evening gown but her entire wardrobe during the Ms. America 2013 pageant week's activities comprised of trendy ethnic inspired designs. During the competition, Amanda wore an ivory satin evening gown with metallic gold lace trim and crystals at waist and off shoulder, and side slit. Amanda explains, "My wardrobe is styled by TeKay Designs in Houston Texas. I'm proud of my culture. I want to show my cultural side through ethnic fashions. Because I'm from Zambia, I want to shine a light on African fashions to support the designers. African fashions are more than just clothing; because the garment tells a story in tribal context. For example; the fabric that is used in traditional Musisi dresses often signifies a geographical region and tribal expression. There is also a new generation of Africans who are more inspired by western designs fused with African fabrics. And they call these looks Afrique-Chic. So, I wear ethnic fashions to share more about whom I am." Amanda has sparked a cultural style trend in mainstream pageantry. Since winning her title, you will find Amanda adorned in opulent cultural fashions and representing her title at events while advancing her humanitarian cause. Amanda's mission is to lend her voice to ieEmbrace organization as her humanitarian cause. ieEmbrace provides hospitals and clinics with medical supplies and equipment; as well as offering youth development programs.

    Presenting culture in the forefront is a stylish asset, even more so at gala events that are as highly profiled as the Golden Icons Academy Movie Awards (GIAMA) ceremony. Amongst the celebrities and socialites, we met with pageant winner Chiniqua Pettaway the reigning Ms. America 2013. Ms. Pettaway's striking appearance in a body sculpting bronze gold lace dress with pleated undertones made her a paparazzi magnet as she arrived to accept interviews. This is intended, because Ms. America knows to leverage media attention to advance her humanitarian mission to the forefront.

    "I embrace my culture by being active in the African-American community as a mentor to young women. I coach at youth development programs. I teach etiquette classes and lecture young people about life, the importance of education and how it will affect their life in the long term." states Pettaway.

    As a humanitarian, Chiniqua Pettaway extends her time to support many areas of her community. She extends her time to youth initiatives, social dignitaries, civic groups and spiritual organizations; as well as local entrepreneurial startups. Pettaway is especially passionate about her platform of service "Guard a Heart" a heart health awareness foundation. Guard a Heart's mission is to fight heart disease with their campaign, "Know your Risk, Save a Life." Heart conditions are the number-one killer of men and women in America. Chiniqua Pettaway is a small business owner herself, and her title as Ms. America offers Chiniqua unique opportunities to connect with other businesses and to form meaningful relationships. "I want to wear ethnic fashions that show my cultural pride.

    TeKay Designs is a young cultural design business and I'm willing to support that platform. The fashions are extremely cohesive as a collection; and you can always identify TeKay's signature design. TeKay's fashions are vibrant in color with diverse styles. The garments are distinctly ethnic, but the looks will compliment anyone. TeKay diversifies the models so when people of different ethnicities see the dresses, they can see themselves wearing TeKay's fashions too. I embrace culture one-hundred percent! And so long as I like the garment, I'll wear it! It's important for me to project a positive image. Popular Media today has a heavy influence on what African-American youth emulate. There are certainly some poor examples being projected in the Media. As I see it, there is a huge gap between where the African-American culture actually has advanced to, and the perception of where we've advanced to. We do not have a lot of good role models for African-American youth to relate to in popular Media so I try to be that positive image and that's why I'm active in the community. I want to have a real presence, and lead by example." explains Pettaway.

    Ethnic fashions are an asset, and offers a nonverbal expression of pride that automatically signals social status. It is cultural pride that motivates communitarian ways. Historic African-American leaders have always used cultural style to express direction when implementing plans, and to motivate people. Amanda Wamunyima and Chiniqua Pettaway are two of many untold examples of how sister-hood holds up the neighborhood --adorned in cultural style!

      Elease Donovan Swimwear



    (MIAMI, Fla.) – Visually influenced by the tropical vibes of Jamaica and Miami while honing into high fashion and trends straight off the runway, Elease Donovan Swimwear is the ultimate swim and resort collection for fashionistas. Donovan’s aim is to create a go-to collection for trendsetters who dress to the nines on every occasion, and don’t want to fade into the vast ocean of traditional swim designs. Launched in the Spring of 2012, Elease Donovan Swimwear started with a “jungle goddess” collection with sequin, sexy bodysuits and pin-up styles, and continues to embrace on-trend prints, silhouettes, and hues in every collection she creates.

    Combining various materials and styles, Elease Donovan Swimwear encapsulates a unique collection of high end swim pieces made for the jet setter who exudes confidence and always dresses for the occasion, even if there isn’t one. Each design encapsulates the tropical color palette and features details such as bandage-style strings and sheer patches that set the collection apart from the rest. Donovan’s designs stem from her entire life in tropical environments, from the beach to the pool, that allow her to bring functionality and style together for the ultimate collection.

    With Fashion Merchandising knowledge and a knack for artistic design, Elease Donovan offers a fresh look and style to the world of swimwear. Sophistication and glamour come together in the collection offering a chic selection for fashionistas who want to take their personal style to the water.

    Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams models Koshie O.!


     Michelle Williams models Koshie O.!     Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams models Koshie O.!


    Koshie O. is a women’s clothing line integrating African themes and aesthetics with modern designs. The Koshie O. collection blends an African focus on luxuriant fabric and earthy symbolism with more fluid and practical modern designs required by a contemporary lifestyle. In some sense, Koshie O. is an echo of many of the globalizing currents that are simultaneously shaping Africa and introducing her kaleidoscope to the modern world.

    The founder and CEO Nina Baksmaty is herself an embodiment of these transformations. She lives and was educated in the United States but was raised in Ghana along a line of traditional Ghanaian dressmakers and artisans who have served their local communities for several generations. Koshie O. creates garments with top quality fabrics which are globally selected to exacting standards and processed in many places including Ghana and New York City.

    Koshie O. is very careful when it comes to their production as they do not outsource labor to sweatshops. The production process assists in the livelihoods for quasi-independent artisans and small teams of professionals. Consistent with largely egalitarian West African traditions, it is Baksmaty’s vision that Koshie O. will be accessible to people from all walks of life!

    Urban Masala Offers Metropolitan Style


    - New York Fashion Week represents a melting pot of conceptual fashion ideas shared not only in a country of mixed cultures, but the city itself has profoundly mixed cultural roots. This is why the fashion line Urban Masala is so apropos for metropolitan markets such as New York. -

    Urban Masala, represents the mix of cultures and lifestyles in urban centers across America. There are many cultures that can identify with the eclectic mix of patterns applied to the garments. Much of the line features "one-of-a-kind" elements where the shape repeats but the content changes. The Designer, Sehar Peerzada creates clothing which are designed as ensembles but are sold as separates that can be mixed and matched to the wearers taste. This is a design feature that has significant economical benefits as well as aesthetic benefits to the customer. The line makes for an ideal vacation wardrobe that offers separates which are versatile and easy to layer, mix and match. The Urban Masala collection incorporates handmade, non-seasonal fabrics from around the world; as well as unique shapes of pants, tops, jackets, shawls and dresses --which are easy to fit and comfortable to wear. The line was intentionally created using elastic waists; with few zippers or buttons for sized fitting to be less of a definitive issue.

    "Urban Masala is a cultural hybrid collection because it brings the ethnic mix to a level where it is wearable, not as costume but as everyday wear. Many people won't wear ethnic clothing because it's perceived as a costume. As a form of cultural expression you're not obligated to wear the complete cultural dress anyway. Because we are in an era where corporate culture is not supportive of cultural dress as everyday wear, people tend to take a little dab of culture and apply it to contemporary dress. This is something I noticed when I sold full mud-cloth coats through Nordstrom some years ago. Mud-cloth was my entree into Nordstrom Department Stores. The coats sold well, so I know that there is a market for cultural hybrid fashions", states Peerzada.

    Urban Masala offers women alluring dresses without women being sexually over exposed. Peerzada proudly defines her approach to aesthetic design as being "old school" because she likes ensembles that are matching, as does her customer base. Typically, the younger generation consciously purchase separates; and looks to mix different designer pieces. The Urban Masala fashion line is a new moniker for what Peerzada has always created using hand block printing on non-seasonal fabrics. The line is intended for a broad customer base that identifies with a cultural hybrid approach to achieve a modest metropolitan style.
