Black Matters

Black is beautiful. It just is. When I’m wearing an all black look it takes me back to my early days working at Fashion magazine in Toronto. Black skinny trousers and a long-sleeve fitted black T-shirt, this was my boss’s uniform and I thought she was terribly chic. She had impossibly high standards and I learned the most about the business of fashion magazines from her. To this day those lessons serve me well. This all black look makes me feel grounded, like I’ve come home. I also think it’s pretty cute. (Cute is a word my boss would never have used, alas, it’s the gold standard for praise here in Los Angeles.) So let’s celebrate all things black, shall we? If this sounds like a thinly veiled comment on racial inequities, it is. Like I said, black is beautiful.

With love,

Amanda
