The contribution of the Black communities in the UK has been underrated or simply unseen for too long. Yet Black Britons have enriched our cultural landscape and economy with vibes and stories coming from afar. Fashions Finest wants to celebrate black innovators and strong business women who make our life more beautiful.
Every month tinges with different colours and surges as the flag for a cause. Fashions Finest's Black History Month is a journey across people and ideas fueled by a courageous entrepreneur spirit and passion.
Tiph'arah is a UK-based haircare company born in Coventry, Midlands. The brand moved its first steps in the intimacy of a house - to be more precise - a kitchen. Jessica Oduro, the founder, was looking for intensive and natural options that could keep her Afro hair nourished and hydrated for longer. Failed to do so, she started to experiment with natural and organic ingredients at home until she found the right formulation for glorious hair. 'Tiph'arah means 'glory' in Hebrews, in fact! Tiph'arah's hair butters aim to strengthen the hair strands, hydrate and promote healthy growth. The product range, consisting of three types of hair butter (Shea Cocoa Mango, Paw Carrot and Shea-Mang AVO'), is made with 90% of pure and organic ingredients from Ghana and the remaining sourced in Europe at high standards.
Aviela (read [a-vee-el-ah]) is a word used in Northern Ghana for 'good', 'nice' or even 'beautiful'. This word conveys very positive vibes. Aviela is the child of Patricia Monney who, during a family holiday in Ghana in 2007, was introduced to the power of raw, unrefined shea butter to heal her little daughter's ankle. Patricia learnt about shea butter anti-inflammatories properties and, once back home in the UK, she focused on expanding her knowledge on shea butter. She found a way to work the natural ingredient without compromising the natural properties and qualities of shea butter. The solution was her kitchen helper which gives Aviela products that superb weightless whipped consistency. Aviela offers a range of skincare and body care for all skin types with 100% pure, unrefined shea butter. Patricia sources her shea butter ethically from a cooperative of 25 women from the village of Gurugu in the Northern region of Ghana.
Pamoja (read [pam-oh-jah]) is a Swahili word meaning 'together' and is inspired by formulator and founder Sarah Taylor's Tanzanian/British heritage as well her skin journey. During pregnancy, she experienced severe sensitivity and succeeded in finding the solution by herself. She worked on her own products and formulations gaining also some spotlights in national magazines.
This independent, black-owned company offers natural skincare with high performance and quality standards. Cruelty-free and environmentally friendly, Pamoja takes equal care of sensitive skin and the environment with sustainable packaging, ethically sourced botanical ingredients and zero palm oil. Sarah thinks that 'everyone deserves to feel good and that when you are kinder to yourself, it will help you be your very best.' For Sarah 'Black History Month is an opportunity to be more inclusive, to shine a spotlight on the contributions and the challenges we face so that we can better understand our collective history every single month of the year.'
Meet Wax + Wraps
For many of us, the pandemic represented a forced stop; however, this suspended time allowed us to reset priorities and rebuild ourselves. This happened to Jaqueline Shaw with Wax + Wraps. The fashion expert and entrepreneur overcame the COVID-19 backlash thanks to her acumen and love for fashion design. She realised how many people get interested in handmade and sewing during the pandemic and she also noticed how popular were and are still crafting subscription boxes.
Jaqueline, who has an MA in Ethical Fashion, is passionate about Africa and traditional fabrics. She put this personal love in her own subscription box by sourcing unique textiles printed, woven or knitted by hand in African states and regions. 'Other sewing boxes do the job but they are all very similar and I felt that they don’t inspire me to learn more about the people or even to source responsible fabrics and textiles too. My Master's degree in Ethical Fashion from the UCA Epsom, taught me that in this fashion industry, WE the consumers are the change we want to see. We are responsible for the impact of the industry on our planet and our purchasing decisions can build or break the industry. And its environment impact.'
Jaqueline thinks that 'Africa is Fashion's Future' and has been spreading awareness at previous London Fashion Weeks and events in Africa and the States. We could not but totally agree on that. Her sewing box does not just quench our thirst for crafts but also disclose stories from beautiful lands and people as no other service does.
Saka Luxe Beauty
Many feels puzzled by the length and complexity of cosmetic labels. This exact reaction is behind Saka Luxe Beauty, a UK natural hair and skincare company founded in Bristol in 2020. Available on Etsy, eponymous of everything handcrafted, the brand's ethos is based on creating simple and affordable products to moisturise and nourish hair, beard and body. Every jar of butter, every bottle of oil is handmade in small batches to ensure a caring and luxurious feel.
Jessica, Patricia, Sarah and Jacqueline are just four of the many black businesswomen that turn their creative verve or necessity to express themselves and made a living from their passion. Black History Month is important to us because the majority of the black-owned businesses are too small to gain the deserved visibility on the media and still struggle in this overcrowded industry.
We invite you to have a look around and discover the authenticity of these companies and that of many similar ones. As you and we shop independent and black-owned, we can support these individuals and make a little but significant change in their lives, ours, and the way we shop.
Fashions Finest is happy to bring you these personal stories and call all the black-founded companies to get in touch to join us and build together a network of creators beyond Black History Month.

K-beauty, K-pop, K-drama. That 'K' means Korean - precisely, South Korean - and it is the signature of the 'hallyu' wave: the proud spread of Korean culture and lifestyle. Korean beauty and skincare have gained popularity and success across the globe but what is the secret of this massive success?
K-beauty is on everyone's lips and faces! Korean beauty spread and conquered the market and the public. However, K-beauty secret is beyond kawaii and colourful packages.

K-beauty is about a minimal look and a radiant beauty that comes from within. Korean skincare secrets are passed on generation after generation, rooted in traditional wisdom and generous use of natural ingredients. The Korean skincare we all love is the combination of this familiar past and today's most advanced technologies. Here are the other 'K-secrets' explained for you.
Mother Nature's Gifts

K-beauty takes the very best from Nature with botanical extracts and fermented ingredients that create enzymes breaking into new and effective substances. Of the many key ingredients, snail slime and bee venom could refrain the most squeamish of you but they are safe with visible results! Korean skincare benefits also from brightening rice, mung bean, known anti-oxidants green tea, turmeric and ginseng, and superstars mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) and cica (Centella Asiatica).
Hi-tech But Affordable

Koreans know well what goes onto their skin and they always look for the best; they are exigent customers. To satisfy their need, Korean cosmetic companies invest in new technologies and formulations to deliver what is expected and build up the result from the inside. The competition is high as the variety of products, yet the prices are never over the top. Korean skincare is for everyone's wallet.
Great Skin For All And Customisable Skincare

It is not just a matter of money! Korean skincare is for everyone's skin type, even the most sensitive. With 56.8% of the Korean population suffering from sensitive skin, K-beauty pays a load of attention to hypoallergenic formulations with less harsh chemicals and more active ingredients from natural sources. A staple in Korean skincare is its routine made of 10 different steps. This routine would sound very long in today's hectic lifestyle but it is not as strict as it seems. These 10 K-beauty steps are not daily and can be customised to fit one's routine and skin necessities.
Effective Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Constant research and powerful ingredients are at the base of Korean cosmetics effectiveness. K-beauty high performance can be explained also by these facts: K-beauty is made to prevent rather than treating skin issues when it is too late; plus, skincare products are developed to hydrate, nourish, strengthen and re-rejuvenate from within. Korean skin products are more than a trend and go beyond skincare. They are 'cosmeceuticals', beauty products with a therapeutical side.
The cultural aspect cannot be undervalued. In fact, Korean men and women - think about popular K-pop boy band BTS - learn how to take care of their skin earlier and with constancy. An early start, protection from harmful sun rays, and a religious regime prevent skin from showing ageing signs too soon.

Cutting-edge formulas, appealing products - like skin patches, sheet face masks and packs - and the right dose of kawaiiness in creative designs are the recipe for this skincare. K-beauty owns a lot to Mother Nature and as such tends to be very gentle with our environment with cruelty-free formulations and investment in recycled and biodegradable packaging. Sometimes, this is the case of I'M FROM, the k-beauty addict can see where the key ingredients come from.
K-beauty shows that healthy-looking skin is achievable by everyone. It is a philosophy and a way of living: slowly, with patience and respect as Nature teaches.
