Black women in the United States spend more than $20 billion on apparel each year.

That’s what targetmarketnews.com says.

And according to a recent BET release, at New York’s September 2007 Fashion Week the runways were dominated by white faces.

In fact, Black faces were more absent from the runways than some fashion insiders have seen since the ’60s. Of the 101 runway shows, more than 1/3 employed no Black models.

Because of this decline in African Americans on the runway, BET’s been asking, “Has Black become unfashionable?”

Really.
