Black Makers Market honors artisans of color as Black History Month comes to a close

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – Black History Month is coming to a close, but one store in downtown Charlottesville is sending it out in style. Darling Boutique hosted a Black Maker’s Market on Saturday. The store hosts pop-up shops every Saturday, but this one was special: they only featured artisans of color. “Our shop is half handmade and half secondhand but we’re a consignment shop,” Darling Boutique owner Linnea White said. “We feature, almost 80 live artisans in the store all the time, but today, we’re kind of just bringing to the forefront, makers of color, to show that support in the community.” The store featured multiple vendors selling a variety of products. One, Northshea, sells shea butter made by and supporting villagers in Ghana who had previously been exploited making the product. The boutique says it may continue to sell some of the products featured in the future.

Zazie Beetz’s Hairstyle At The 2020 Oscars Was Inspired By Eartha Kitt (& Featured This $12 Product)

Let’s be real: There’s not a single part of Zazie Beetz’s look from the 92nd Annual Academy Awards that doesn’t look expensive. From the statement-making choker to the sequined, two-piece Thom Browne set, the Joker star wowed on the red carpet. The secret to Zazie Beetz’s hairstyle at the 2020 Oscars, though? A $12 product you can snag on your next Target run. “Zazie’s hair for her first Oscars was inspired by Eartha Kitt. I wanted to keep the look authentic to Zazie and really showcase her natural texture,” explained Lacy Redway, celebrity hairstylist and a style and trends curator for Nexxus, in a press email. “We didn’t use a ton of product outside of the Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist, because I wanted her hair to feel light and airy, and have movement.” And when Redway said products were kept to a minimum — she meant it. The stylist relied on the $11.99 Nexxus Comb Thru Volume Finishing Mist Hairspray, though not before setting up a foundation for the look. “I prepped her hair the day before, giving her braids to help enhance her natural texture,” Redway explained. “We unraveled the braids this morning, and ...

Meet the Product Designer Who Made Mid-Century America Look Clean and Stylish | Innovation

Raymond Loewy, the legendary American product designer and businessman, isn’t familiar to consumers today, but in the latter half of the 20th century he was a household name for his practice of applying the principles of what he called “cleanlining” to create starkly memorable designs. The 1934 Sears refrigerator; the packaging for Lucky Strike cigarettes; the Exxon logo; dozens of car models for the Studebaker Automobile Company—all were Loewy’s designs. Following his credo that “the loveliest curve I know is the sales curve,” Loewy moved millions of products for clients such as Coca-Cola, Nabisco, Armour and Frigidaire. The French-born Loewy also applied the tenets of cleanlining—reducing the look of a product to its essence, without frills or needless detail—to build his own uniquely American persona. Reinvention is a recurring theme in American literature and legend, and like the products he re-envisioned, Loewy, too, managed his public image from the moment he immigrated to the United States, continually editing and polishing his biography over more than a half-century as he worked as a designer and artist. He built one of the most successful design firms in history, and po...
