The iconic “Fashionista” photo shoot styled by ESSENCE’s own Emil Wilbekin in our latest September issue continues to gain buzz.

The shoot highlights leading women of color in the fashion industry today like personality Bevy Smith, on-air host Tai Beauchamp, dj Deejay Kiss, blogger Claire Sulmers, stylist June Ambrose and designer Tracy Reese.
