Hi, I am Nika, creator and author of Irie Chic, a blog depicting my personal style. For the past two years, blogging about style/fashion has opened up a whole new world to me, and I am excited to say that I am really excited by the black bloggers who are showcasing their style or love of fashion in blogosphere. In a field where black people often have to break down many doors that are closed to them, fashion/style blogging offers us a chance to portray and showcase our individual style or fashion viewpoint through our lenses. The fact is, fashion and style have been very important in many sectors of the black community for a long time. Many of us have fond memories of Easter Sunday outfits that would give couture a run for their money; or we have observed the art of making one dress look ten different ways, i.e., the power of accessorizing. Further, black urban style has found its way to runway.
The primary focus of Black Fashion Bloggers will be to highlight black bloggers in blogosphere, but I will also be posting lifestyle tidbits, a little black fashion history, black trendsetters of the past and today among other things. Welcome and I hope you enjoy!
