Although it may not be as impressive as its four big sisters (Paris Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week) the Dutch fashion industry is very proud of its own Amsterdam Fashion Week.

28 Days of Black History, Our Way

28 Days of Black History, Our Way

by

Yesterday, when asked to participate in "Black History Month" as a company, I was divided. Knowing that I did not want to spew gray-haired importance or perpetuate an idea that I do not completely understand, I grew hesitant. Unsure of where the idea of having a "Black History Month" came from or why it should be celebrated in February is beyond the knowledge of most. However, taking the opportunity to share the importance of people that we believe in is important. This morning, we wrote a list of deserving individuals. +++ Day 1: Claudette Colvin Astonished at the valor 15-year-old and what she means to the country that I live in, I stared at her for a long time when I listened to her story. Claudette Colvin was the first — yes, the first person to resist bus segregation in Montgomery, Alabama — and somehow, the world knows nothing or very little about her.
