You know when amazing opportunities present themselves, you just have to jump on them. One prime example of this happened earlier this month when we were contacted by Four Brown Girl (FBG) to sponsor their Brown Beauties Brunching event.
FBG's mission is redefine the modern black woman by addressing gender and racial stereotypes through active, committed leadership. They do this by creating a network that gives support and empowers black women in all facets of their lives: education, health, beauty, fashion, career.
Based in Montreal, FBG has been hosting events since 2015 however Brown Beauties Brunching was their inaugural event in Toronto. Titled "Melanin on the Runway", the brunch featured a series of prominent Black women who explored the reconciliation between culture, identity, and fashion from the black female perspective.
The afternoon was filled with brunch style canapés, signature cocktails, networking, interactive discussion panel and headwrap tutorials by yours truly, Kuwala. Check out some of our favourite posts from Instagram and Twitter, as well as some images we captured:
