Black Beauty and Fashion Awards starts 2017 with a bang

CELEBRATION: Black Beauty and Fashion Awards

BLACK BEAUTY and Fashion Awards (BBFA) are launching the first event of its kind in the UK, in partnership with Colourful Radio. The exclusive award ceremony, which celebrates diversity in the beauty industry will take place in Central London, on November 3 2017.

The award ceremony aims to foster advancement in beauty by promoting equality and celebrating diversity. This is alongside encouraging entrepreneurship within the UK’s burgeoning Black and Multiracial (BMR) community, with their significant investment in, and expenditure on grooming products.

BBFA’s Founder, cosmetic scientist Cheryl said, “Advancement is taking place within the industry concerning black beauty, hair and fashion and it must be acknowledged! There's an amazing range of products available for BMR people, but a ‘disconnect’ exists between brands, retailers and consumers. Often people can’t find what they want, although it exists...somewhere.

"BBFA seeks to promote, celebrate and encourage producers of high quality products suitable for BMR individuals, and build bridges to prompt greater inclusion via mainstream channels," continues Cheryl. "This is all towards bringing about growth that our communities will also benefit from.”

The people’s choice award, are also looking for two aspiring models to become the Male and Female Faces of BBFA.

For an event that celebrate the inclusion and representation of black and multiracial people, the BBFA will certainly be the place to be in 2017.
