Some people see a need and talk about what needs to be done. Others see a need and do what needs to be done. That is the kind of person Brandice Daniel is. The founder of Harlem Fashion Row, an organization that helps to bring more visibility to multicultural designers, said she was led to her path by what she can only describe as a calling.
“It was an idea I believe that was given to me by God and I couldn’t let it go,” she says. “I was working a full-time job at the time and was going to school part-time. There was this idea to do a fashion show in Harlem that I couldn’t stop thinking about, dreaming about or talking about. So I started planning it.”
Daniel says that although a fashion show was her first idea, she quickly expanded on it, once again being led by spirit. It evolved into Harlem Fashion Row, now in its 11th year. Along the way, Daniel has provided exposure to more African-American and multicultural designers than any other entity.
