Fashion events grace the French capital all year round. One’s a little less known, but no less impressive: Black Fashion Week, now a permanent fixture in the fashion calendar, and that’s all thanks to its founder Adama Amanda Ndiaye. It exists to counter dominant Caucasian beauty ideals, challenging boundaries and perceptions. It captures young imaginations and show budding designers that success isn’t as elusive as it may seem. BFWParis is about cultural history more than it’s about colour.
