Minority Designers Shine on 2014 Emmys Red Carpet

First of all, can we just stop and applaud the talented stylists and "glam squads" of the 2014 Emmys? There were so many amazing looks last night that I was literally stunned at the lack of “WTF is she wearing?” moments I had going through various red carpet slide shows. The colors of the night were a tossup between white and vibrant corals, which is fitting considering we've reached the last week of summer (heartbreaking, I know) and many of these hues simply won’t stand a chance on a fall or winter red carpet. Another thing about this year’s red carpet that put a smile on my face and song in my heart, was the presence of minority designers worn by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. As many of you may know, award season is a pretty big deal in terms of free marketing and advertising for designers. You get some of the most famous celebrities to wear your clothes and just sort of stand in one place and have thousands, yes thousands, of photos taken of them that will be in nearly every magazine and online fashion publication across the globe. It’s major.

What better place than Fashion of Culture to showcase some of the beautiful creations worn last night made by a few of our favorite designers of color? Let the glamour commence.

  1. What a great way to put a spotlight on designers who I didn't even know were ethnic in some cases. Zuhair Murad has to be my personal favorite of the bunch so elegant.


    1. Thank you! I happy you said that about not knowing that some were ethnic designers, that's partly why I even created this blog so yay! :-) I also love the Zuhair Murad!

  2. I think it's so cool how you know so much about designers, or at least take the time to do the research to know who they are. It's informative for a person like me who really has no real clue about designer names, but it's interesting to learn. Out of the ones you have pictured, Camila Alves, Mindy Kaling, and Taylor Schilling are my favorite looks. There were a lot of impressionable looks this year on the red carpet, surprise, surprise. ♥ Chymere A.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad people can learn things here. I am such a nerd about these sort of things, I read designer bios all the time hahaha. :)
