Macy’s Celebrates Black Creatives With Icons of Style
More and more Fortune 500 companies and corporations large and small are rethinking their branding strategy by embracing diversity and inclusion in their marketing campaign.
But for Macy’s this isn’t anything new. Macy’s has always recognized the importance of inclusion for all and continues to be at the forefront.
With its recent launched Icon of Style, Macy’s celebrates Black Creatives with a collaboration of five Black visionaries to help move the fashion world forward. Featuring exclusive designs across women’s ready-to-wear, men’s fashions, and shoes by Zerina Akers, Misa Hylton, Aminah Abdul Jillil, Allen Onyia and Ouigi Theodore. There designs can be found exclusively at Macy’s, each creative artfully designed a fashion-forward capsule of must-have fashion-forward styles, inspired by their unique perspective and dynamic style. Icons of Style is available at Macy’s Lakeside and online at macys.com, as well as select store locations nationwide.
“We are thrilled to celebrate Black excellence and amplify the voices and exceptional talent of five Black Creatives,” said Durand Guion, Vice President, Macy’s Fashion Office. “We’re using this moment to tell their stories and provide our fashion-devoted customers with exclusive, one-of-a-kind pieces to help them express their personal style.”
