Black History In The Making: Meet Samantha Black aka Sammy B

I had the honor of viewing this inspirational video piece during Sammy B's Fall/Winter 2012NYFW fashion presentation last week. If you have dreams, this short video is inspiration for you! It's a must-see! I love art and anything dealing with creativity, it's refreshing to see that I'm not alone in my generation. Sammy B is Black History in the Making.

Samantha Black aka Sammy B's fashion journey began taking flight upon her receipt of a BFA with a concentration in fashion design from the prestigious Pratt University located in Brooklyn, NY. During her academic stint Sammy interned for Jill Stuart and Michael Kors and upon graduation moved onto work for the international fashion icon Alexander McQueen in his London design studio.
Upon returning to the states Samantha was elevated to the position of head designer of the entire women's denim line (ranging from bottoms to outerwear) for Aeropostale's Jimmyz.
Samantha's diverse resume, extensive experience with other designers and her own personal life journey has certainly inspired her beautifully eclectic collection; a collection whose self- proclaimed goal has been to complement fashion- forward women while adding a splash of Sammy B's own sassy flavor.
