The 2017 Black Beauty and Fashion Awards


The first annual Black Beauty and Fashion Awards (BBFA) will take place on November 3, 2017 at 5pm at London's Porchester Hall. 

The BBFA is a U.K.-based event focused on beauty products for black men and women. According to organizers, "We aim to give black minority ethnic consumers of beauty products a voice that can be heard clearly and help curve a market space for products. We aim to increase representation of black people in mainstream beauty and hope to see Black Beauty and Fashion Award winning products in mainstream stores across the country."

Voting for this year's awards ends on July 31st.
