Designing for black panther

As a fashion designer who is taking the world of glamour by storm, you'd be surprised to hear LaQuan Smith casually mention his rejection from Parsons and other lauded New York fashion institutions. These setbacks never slowed him down, and this piece serves as a testament to his consistent striking work. Exploring the unveiling of his 2018 Fall/Winter Collection and the reveal of a new look inspired by Marvels' Black Panther film, LaQuan describes his inspirations, his work, and what it means to be a young black designer in a creative world that is constantly pushing forward.
