This Black Panther-Inspired Fashion Show Is Gorgeous, But It’s Also For A Good Cause

Marvel’s Black Panther is currently taking the world by storm – the comics, the film, the soundtrack, and now… New York Fashion Week.

As if I wasn’t already pumped enough, Disney invited me to check out the “Welcome to Wakanda” exhibition this week in Manhattan. I saw a fantastic collection of fashions – gowns, jewellery, shoes and more – inspired by the Ryan Coogler film.

Designers featured include Chromat, Cushnie et Ochs, Ikiré Jones, LaQuan Smith, Sophie Theallet, TOME, Fear of God, Brother Vellies, Douriean Fletcher, and Josh Bennett. Take a look through our gallery to check out some of these designs and learn more about their inspirations:
