Forbes magazine released its “30 under 30″ list yesterday. The annual list is an impressive rooster of young mover-and-shakers. Some name s we already know, while others we will know in the coming years.
The fashionista in me was thrilled to see that Carly Cushnie, one half of the design duo behind Cushnie et Ochs, land on Forbes’ short list.
Cushnie’s enviable personal style that consists of black-on-black-on-black ensembles and a jaw-dropping shoe collection is only rivaled by the head-turning garments she creates. Cushnie and her design partner, Michelle Ochs, both 28, launched Cushnie et Ochs in 2009 and quickly became known for their minimal yet edgy creations.
Stars such as Rihanna, Kerry Washington, Liya Kebede and Kelly Rowland have all been spotted in CEO- Cushnie et Ochs — and you know you’ve truly hit sartorial gold when First Lady Michelle Obama slips into one of your designs.
Naturally Moi congratulates one of our favorite African American designers and style star, Carly Cushnie
