11 Black Designers Who Influenced Fashion and Culture … Then and Now



Patrick Robinson

Robinson took a different approach from many designers. Instead of focusing on his line, he blossomed through his impressive work at other brands. He flourished at Giorgio Armani, Perry Ellis, Anne Klein and Paco Rabanne. Significantly, he was the driving force behind the Gap’s resurgence and restructured jeans line.


Kevan Hall

Actresses Angela Bassett and Salma Hayek are two of the celebrities who appreciate Hall’s refusal to go trendy and adore his sexy but tasteful evening gowns. He focuses on sophistication and elegance in his Kevan Hall Collection that launched in 2002.
