With Fashion Week officially underway, there are multiple designers who are showing their Fall 2018 collections this season and over 70 designers of color are presenting at this year’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Considering less than fifty designers of color showed their labels back in 2016, this is definitely a significant win for diversity in the fashion industry.

Despite the progress for designers of color, only nine Black designers are officially listed on the official NYFW calendar, which proves the need for more recognition among talented Black designers.

In honor of NYFW, which started on Thursday (Feb. 8), here’s a closer look at the nine Black designers who are showing their upcoming collections this season.
