2. SYDNI ALLYSE
Sydni Allyse is a New Jersey native and recent graduated of Clark Atlanta University. She is also the founder and creator of First Class Collection, a clothing brand founded in February 11, 2018. Sydni says “the concept behind First Class Collection was designed with YOU in mind; in that dope pieces of athleisure wear were created that could be worn in various ways.”
“Each piece represents a unique quality and versatility, making it more than a brand but a lifestyle.” And we all know that your lifestyle begins with a thought, an establishing of goals that once achieved creates an individual level of success that cannot be duplicated or measured.”
First Class Collection is versatile and allows everyone to be their best selves! It can be worn to a work out session, or club; that decision is entirely up to you. Every Wednesday, the brand does a ‘Black Business Shout Out’ on my Instagram, highlighting African American businesses and artist.
Currently the brand is available online at www.firstclassco.store.
3. TIFF MCFIERCE
Tiff McFierce was once again this years official music curator for BeautyCon NY, and their first ever music curator for 2018! Soundtracking tunes for top brands and venues as a sought after DJ and music coordinator, Tiff McFierce is also the first woman and first black woman to be resident DJ for the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. From years of curating her own events and parties all over the country Tiff also created her wellness series, Look IN vs Lookin’ is a safe space of music, movement and meditation for women of color to make sure they’re taking care of self everyday.
I’m really really big on music, movement, meditation and understanding that my gift from God is a gift and its a medium. But my purpose as a healer, is to heal myself. So I create spaces with my peers of humans, where we can just get together and do a movement like Yoga or Dance.
For me, music is not just my job- it’s my meditation, its literally my everything. I absolutely love music
4. TINA FRENCH
Tina is the founder of ‘Hollywood Melanin,’ a platform dedicated to highlighting and celebrating black talent in Hollywood. Tina says “I feel that very often great projects by black filmmakers are being overlooked and this page is meant to push those projects to the forefront, make them a priority. My goal for HM is for it to become a platform where creatives of color can truly shine and receive the recognition they deserve.”
