2023 Black future maker

Brandice Daniel

As a proud fashion outsider from Memphis, TN, Brandice Daniel has left a mark by doing things her way. In 2007, Daniel founded Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) a New York-based firm that acts as a bridge between designers of color and brands via collaborations, experiential events, and pipeline programs. 

Ten years later, Daniel led the collaboration between HFR, Nike and Lebron James on the HFRxLBJ16 shoe, the first Lebron sneaker designed by and for women. The shoe sold out in less than 5 minutes. 

Since then, she has led partnerships with LVMH, Tommy Hilfiger, Tiffany & Co, Levi, Gap Inc, Tapestry, and more. In 2020, Brandice started a non-profit organization, ICON360 that has donated over $2 Million to HBCU Fashion Departments and Black designers. And just last year she received Alumni of the Year award from the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Social Impact Award from Footwear News.

Brandice is a proud mom to Sky Daniel and wife to Richard Daniel.
