Discover Black-Owned Beauty: This personalized curated display area is specially created for Black-owned beauty brands seeking access to market opportunities, educational resources, retail distribution, and brand exposure. Curators Adrienne Mason and Maria Torres created the Beauty International Group with the intention to ensure Black-owned beauty brands have access to investment capital, retail distribution, logistics, and valuable industry know-how. This area facilitates retailers’ commitment to the “fifteen percent pledge,” which asks businesses to dedicate 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned brands.
For the first time, the Entrepreneur Academy will be hosted in partnership with the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Cosmetics & Fragrance Marketing and Management Master’s Program. The one-day intensive hands-on practical workshop provides beauty entrepreneurs with tools to help them build a brand, manage financials, and more.
