Zulema Griffin

Zulema Griffin is a beautiful and talented black designer who was featured on the reality show Project Runway. In true PR style she has broken away from the fashion pack and is doing things her own way by shunning the Bryant Park tents and putting her fashion on Youtube for the masses.

The collection are a bit stark but beautiful, Griffin says the designs were inspired by the classic black church fashion shows, and the big hats make that pretty clear. I must say that the models in full body black catsuits remind me a lit of Leigh Bowery, but that's not a bad thing, as a matter of fact I think that so far it's the wittiest response to the dearth of black models that I've seen.

You can find out more about Zulema and her beautiful designs on her website.
