In our day and age, it seems the entire world is trying to be white. The white ones wanna get whiter and the “dark” ones are made to believe that their skin is “frumpy and ugly” unless bleached. Some fairness creams disguise themselves as sun blocks and some use language that is incomprehensible to most. The only thing that stands out is a “White Face with White Smiling Teeth” and a tag line suitable enough to sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo.
For our Fall / Winter 2012/13 collection, SoFake decided to pay homage to our brown and black sisters and brothers with a collection called “Black Velvet.” This collection (appropriately named) will only consist of “Black” solids and “Black on Black” prints. Structure. Strength. Soul.
