The portrayal of black women in fashion and art in general has always been one dimensional. While many of the representation of black women seem to be focused on the past, little attention is put on what the black women could become. “2050” is a series focusing on giving an interpretation of what the black woman could look like in the future. The future of fashion is explored and analyzed through black women’s perspective. By exploring issues of identity, womanhood and beauty through a futuristic lens, 2050 is a series that attempts to show the viewers that even in the future, black beauty remains timeless.
