NEED TO KNOW: Designers from Solange Knowles’ video “Don’t Touch My Hair”

I HAD to find the fashion designers from Solange Knowles’ video “Don’t Touch My Hair”. It was hard. Since they weren’t name brands we recognize no one wanted to talk about it. Then I found this NY Times article.

Wow, they are small brands. All beautiful.

Acne Studios coat. They are so incredible with the design and construction of their outerwear. I’m not surprised she chose them.

The beautiful white “Church” dresses¬†were designed by Central Saint Martin’s University designer Jaime McKenna

Solange’s video is like a modern day production of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater group- known for their incredible mix of ballet, jazz, African and modern dance.

It’s incredible.
