2020 has been a tough year for the fashion industry all over the world. The COVID-19 epidemic brought almost all fashion events to a halt or forced them to rely on virtual events, which was why we were excited when we heard that Pitch Black Fashion Week (PBFW) would be coming back to Georgia in October 2020.
Pitch Black Fashion Week is a fashion showcase that spreads awareness about the perils of domestic violence and empowers women to speak up and speak out. It was founded by Shay Sutton of Scripted 1 Clothing Line in 2013 in honor of Vanessa Banks, a model for her clothing brand who was murdered by her boyfriend during a domestic dispute.
In addition to three days of fashion showcases, PBFW 2020 featured a Domestic Violence Panel Discussion, a Black Excellence Awards Gala, and had a host of black-owned businesses as vendors for the event.
PBFW featured designs by Roots Kouture, Saint XIV, Lady Ravish, Siratelier, Built By Stacy, House of La’rue, Jae Trins Boutique, Yung4Ever, Christopher McQueen Collection, ModaMuneca, Cheetah Couture, Me’Ja Wear, and of course Scripted 1.
