When you think of these high end designers, most of the time you don’t picture a Black face behind the name. Let’s be honest, the main top notch designers that we are most familiar with have a white usually gay, man behind the name. Well, there are actually quite a few designers out that sell quality and high-priced gear that are African-American.
This first designer that I want to highlight in Trendy Tuesdays is Carly Cushnie. Cushine is the co-founder of Cushnie Et Ochs. She shares the business with Michelle Ochos. Together they have created a brand that stitches a unique sensibility with a bold sensuality. Each piece that is under this luxury brand caters to the modern woman because they bring a feminine attitude in a bold, edgy taste. Whether you are going out on a date or headed to a corporate meeting with big time executives, you will no doubtfully leave a lasting impression. When you step into the room in Cushnie Et Ochs your phone will definitely be ringing off the hook of people wanting to work with you after you come out of that meeting.
The collection is sold in more than 100 stores Worldwide and supports domestic manufacturing in New York City. Some of the famous faces that have been seen in these designers pieces include Reese Witherspoon, Rhianna, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Check out the website here and feel free to follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Yes, the prices may be mind boggling to you at first, but this brand is one to keep in mind when that special event comes around where you need an exclusive piece.
