Today, Balmain proudly announced the luxury brand’s support of Victor Glemaud’s non-profit IN THE BLK’s initiatives. Members of different Balmain teams will be working directly with Dayanne Danier, a Haitian-American designer and founder of the accessories brand Bien Abye and IN THE BLK member, in terms of both design and business development.
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing said: “I am extremely happy that Balmain will be supporting IN THE BLK and mentoring Ms. Danier. Of course, we all know that the fashion industry has been embarrassingly slow in pushing for the needed changes that will help create a fashion future that better reflects the beautifully diverse world where we all live. The work of the dedicated professionals behind IN THE BLK is helping us to start making up for lost time and the association’s mentorship program is a smart way to kick-start the development of tomorrow’s Black design and business leaders.” Read More
