When I started making fascinators this season, I sought out black-owned businesses I could incorporate into my fascinator design. And that’s how these two timely lovelies came to be:
The Pretty in Pink BLM (Black Lives Matter)-themed Fascinator and the Booby-lious Breast Cancer Awareness Fascinator feature gorgeous fabric by Ashley Summers, an African-American artist based out of the Pacific Northwest. It was love at first sight. Her textile design is so graphic and eye-catching. You can buy matching masks to my fascinators on Ashley Summers’ Society 6 page.
I also happened to discover the McBride Sisters Brut Rosé while at Trader Joe’s. The McBride Sisters Wine Collection is the largest African-American-owned wine company in the United States. I’ll toast to that. 😉
