Summer 2016 Shopping: 10 Bomb Buys from Black Designers under $150!

Ever since the rise of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement, celebrities have urged their fans and followers to encourage the growth of black businesses. Solange led the way when she publicly announced the importance of investing in black-owned establishments and, a few days ago, a coalition of Houston rappers entrusted their funds to one of the only African-American banks in the state. And, here at Fashion Bomb Daily, we’re also on board!

Join us as we get into some of the best buys (under $150) from some of our favorite up-and-coming black designers.
