Industry Insiders Break Down How To Get Into The Business At ESSENCE Fashion House

  Industry Insiders Break Down How To Get Into The Business At ESSENCE Fashion House "Your why needs to be so strong that you’re willing to withstand anything to achieve your goal," said Harlem's Fashion Row Founder and CEO Brandice Daniel.Lew revealed that networking across helped him succeed. “That’s one thing I did is reach out to my Black designers," he said. "And see if I can assist them, or if I can work with them and that’s what helped me build.” He named June Ambrose, April Walker, and Karl Kani as examples of those he connected with and said those in his community seemed more approachable than "Polo," or "Tommy Hilfiger," at the time.

Freshly graduated from Syracuse University, Telsha Anderson was desperate to become a fashion buyer, but found it impossible to get an entry-level job. The other goal was to move to New York City by any means necessary – it turned out those means were park guides. Cut to five years later and Anderson , thanks to her first solo venture, is becoming one of the most talked about women in New York. The result was T.A., a concept and clothing store that offers the city’s female community a fresh perspective on what constitutes modern-day luxury .

Having set up shop in a location with hard-to-crack locals, during the Covid-19 pandemic, Telsha Anderson — founder of concept boutique t.a. New York — has proven herself to be both a valiant businesswoman and true manifestor. The 27-year-old’s impressive Manhattan boutique is a tangible reflection of her multifaceted mind, pushing the envelope on luxury bricks-and-mortar retail spaces. Stocked with carefully curated pieces from cult brands such as Ottolinger, MRZ and Brother Vellies, Anderson ’s East-Coast shopping destination is less retail space and more creative hub.

Telsha Anderson opened her retail store in NYC last summer and since then, the beautifully curated shop has become a go-to place for the city’s coolest crowd. Within the store, you'll find rare brands that aren’t carried in any other retailer, along with aesthetics galore. Telsha’s keen eye and skillset for curating unique assortments of designs, the store is carving its' own lane for a new kind of luxury. "Luxury is an outlook," Anderson said during the panel. "It can be a shirt with the whole back out, or a turtle neck that has an extra layer."

The panel's conversation also reinforced the notion that our perspectives and our personal interpretations are what truly define what luxury means to us. Within traditionally white-dominated spaces, luxury may often look one way, but that doesn't mean it's the only— that’s just the system at work. For decades, Black and brown communities have proudly embraced and set the trend of elevated, luxurious style; whether dripped in gold accessories, dressed in extravagant head wraps, or using afrocentric art to accentuate our homes. The industry’s system deemed our luxuries as ‘urban’ to downplay and disassociate them from what they sold as luxury. But, with today's trendsetters no longer seeking validation from white institutions or white platforms as the lone gateway to elevation. “Luxury was more about clout," Jason noted. "But now, it’s defined by the autonomy of your brand and the stories you are telling."The panelists also weighed in on the importance of recognizing that as the industry plays catch up, Black professionals are building their own tables to show that there is luxury within our own community. “Black luxury is not a new thing," Carlos noted. "We’re true to this, not new to this."

Later on in the conversation, Rembert reflected on his job as a stylist and how he has no problem going the extra mile for young designers that may not have the funds yet. He also emphasized the importance of not being the only one at the table and encouraged the Black creatives in fashion to celebrate each other more often. "If my friend posted some fire styling, I'm reposting it," he continued. "If another friend designed something crazy or won an award, I'm reposting it. Your win is our win."

Aside from the physical elements of luxury, this panel made it clear that there are also non-physical elements that can be defined as luxury – unity, community, support, and selflessness. It is the collective vision and interest that makes something luxurious.
