Macy’s announced the launch of Icons of Style, a collaboration with five Black visionaries that celebrates Black contributions to the fashion industry. Featuring exclusive designs across ready-to-wear, men’s and shoes by Zerina Akers, Misa Hylton, Aminah Abdul Jillil, Allen Onyia and Ouigi Theodore for brands found only at Macy’s, each contributor designed a fashion-forward capsule of spring items inspired by their unique perspective and dynamic style.
“We are thrilled to celebrate Black excellence and amplify the voices and exceptional talent of five Black creatives,” said Durand Guion, vice president, Macy’s Fashion Office. “We’re using this moment to tell their stories and provide our fashion-devoted customers with exclusive, one-of-a-kind pieces to help them express their personal style.”
“This collection is probably the most special because it is my first design collaboration. Through my styling work I have designed many things but never something under my own name. This is very special,” said Zerina Akers.
