Black by Michael Black '03

Since graduating in 2003, Michael Black has taken his love of fashion - combined with his innate talent for it - and taken it to a whole new level.

You have likely seen Michael's work on TV, magazines, or in shop fronts, as he has styled the last nine MAC Cosmetics campaigns. He also designed and styled the winners of RuPaul's Drag Race, which is pictured below.

In print, he has been published in Vogue Magazine and is working with Elle Canada right now for their summer issue, which will feature clothing made and designed by him.

This past March, Michael designed a dress for Redken which was featured at Toronto Fashion Week - the dress was the most Instagrammed and Facebooked outfit of the entire event. 

But that's not all. Michael will be launching his own clothing brand called Black by Michael Black at Toronto Fashion Week this fall.

Photo submitted by Michael Black. The dress is made out of 500 hair swatches and 18 salon cutting capes.
