FORUSBYUS

Black: a word that goes beyond color. History: a long tradition of strength, power, resilience, and wisdom. Month: a commemoration of greatness and empowerment. ForUsByUs is not just a lookbook. It is a movement that celebrates authenticity, identity, and beauty within all forms of blackness.

From Diana Ross and Grace Jones to Kanye West and Jean-Michel Basquiet, blackness and fashion have served as multifaceted platforms to challenge the doubters through artistic expression. ForUsByUs provides a mix of versatile style, taste, hues, and perspectives. This lookbook is blackness in its purest form as art was not designed for us but we made it #ForUsByUs.
