Virgil Abloh, Zelda Wynn Valdes, and Stephen Burrows are iconic and influential Black designers, but the fashion industry has had a long history of racism, classism, and nepotism. Host Roy Wood Jr. chats with Daily Show producer, Chelsea Williamson, CEO of Harlem’s Fashion Row, Brandice Daniel & Editor in Chief at The Cut, Lindsay Peoples about the influence Black culture has had on fashion and the hurdles of breaking into the industry. They also discuss how Lindsay’s 2018 article, “What It’s Really Like to Be Black and Work in Fashion” opened the door for conversations about racism in the industry.
