The Black Women Behind LeBron James' New Sneaker
Have you ever had a life changing phone call? That’s what Harlem Fashion Row (@hfrmovement) founder Brandice Daniel (@brandicedaniel) received when LeBron James asked for her collaboration on his 16th sneaker for Nike. What they developed made history: It’s the first Nike sneaker designed by Black women for women. Daniel recommended three designers from her collective: Undra Celeste (@love_ucny), Kimberly Goldson (@kimberlygoldson) and Fe Noel (@fenoel). All four phenomenal women join us for a discussion about having — and maintaining — a seat at the fashion table. Yes, Girl!
