The first-ever Essence Fashion House in New Orleans was the ultimate hub for everything we love about Black fashion, so much so that we’re bringing it to NYC this September!

We’ll have details on Fashion House NYC coming soon, but while you wait, take a look at the most recent collection from four swimwear brands by well-known designers of color who sent models down the runway of all body-types.

Diva Kurves constructed the words “Slim Thick” on their one-piece swimsuits, featuring bright colors and mesh. B. Fyne took a more traditional approach, creating swimwear pieces and coordinating head wraps in African garments. Asherah Swimwear hit the nail on the head with the animal print trend, and Truffle perfected the combination of tie-dye and stripes.
