Brandon Blackwood isn’t stopping at internet-famous handbags
Misty White Sidell interviews handbag designer Brandon Blackwood as he expands his massively successful line of internet-famous handbags to a lifestyle brand with shoes and ready-to-wear. On the subject of being labeled an “activist designer,” Blackwood tells Sidell: “Being a Black designer, people always want a trauma story, they want some race trauma story or for me to be like, ‘fight the power,’ 24/7.
