Fashion Forward – Black History

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” — Booker T. Washington

Nearly four decades after the accomplishments and sacrifices made by powerful and influential beings in the African and African American culture, we take a month out of the year to celebrate and recognize. Although “Black History” is every month, Style Fanatic wants to take a minute to reflect and look back on the vintage vibes and trends that have formed and shaped the fashions we love today!
