*(New York, NY) — Creative Jenius Report – the innovative industry resource, platform, and hub for Black behind-the-scenes creative professionals – hosted the third installation of its exclusive NYFW party experience, BLACKSTAGE celebrating the contributions of Black Icons in Fashion last night at the chic DUMBO House in Brooklyn.  

This year’s BLACKSTAGE event featured a collective of Black creatives who are pushing boundaries and who have made a significant impact on cultural trends, breaking new ground in fashion including male supermodel Alton Mason; Harper’s Bazaar Style Director at Large Carlos Nazario; celebrity make-up artist Sir John; and celebrity hairstylist Jawara Wauchope. Additionally, guests partied to the sounds of international DJs Wemi and Khalil.

Notable Guests included: Queen Latifah, Duckie Confetti, Miss Lawrence, Johnny Wright, Flo Ngala, iCon Billingsley, Derrick Monroe, and Terrell Jones.

Founded in 2022, by executive producer CJ South, BLACKSTAGE was created to highlight the work of the creatives behind-the-scenes and on the runways of the industry’s top fashion shows and campaigns, making them an essential part of this $1.7 Trillion fashion industry.

“Black creativity is the driving force of our culture but black creatives are often unseen and uncelebrated. As a backstage producer working in fashion, I see first-hand the unsung contributions from black creatives and I wanted to curate a moment that brings us together to honor and SEE each other,” said CJ South. “BLACKSTAGE is a celebration of our impact, importance, and ingenuity.”
