In the wake of the murder of George Floyd 2020, Dandy Wellington took to Instagram and issued a challenge. He encouraged the vast community of illustrators and painters to reimagine fashion illustrations of the 20th century with Black figures at the center. This simple call to action inspired over 1000 pieces of original art featuring Black models in fashion illustrations in a way never before seen in fashion history. Inspired by this ground swell of original work Dandy teamed up with illustrator Jason Raish to create and fund the FIT Black Student Illustrator Award, a no strings attached $1000 award to graduating Black students for the FIT Illustration program. $4000 was raised and awarded to 4 graduating Black Illustrators from the class of 2021.
Dandy Wellington is a world renowned creator of live and digital experiences. Armed with his love of music and sartorial aesthetics of the past, this Harlem born entertainer, storyteller and style activist specializes in building unique relationships with audiences and brands. Whether he’s making appearances at the Sydney Opera House or being featured in The Robb Report and Vogue, Dandy Wellington strives to translate the timeless to a contemporary world.
