Shakaila Forbes-Bell is the first ever black woman in the world to be awarded a Masters in
Psychology for Fashion!
The pretty lady who shared the news via her Instagram page (@poppyshock) posted her picture after graduating with caption; “Today I became the first Black woman in the world to be awarded with a Masters in Psychology for Fashion. I have always and will always fight for the inclusion and positive representation of Black and minority ethnic women worldwide. It is pivotal that the marks we leave on this world are visible for all to see so that future generations of little black girls know that their achievements are boundless“.
“From incidents as severe as Black men and women being executed at home and abroad to something as pathetic as being told that your skin is too dark for a makeup brand (that actually happened to me last week, shout out @clinique ) we face many challenges as a community. With this small step and the many steps, I hope to take in the future I hope to further the narrative of black girls being powerful, beautiful, intelligent and of course – magic! #blackgirlmagic #blacklivesmatter #melanin #love #strength #support #blackwomen #style #fashion”
The fashion psychologist who completed an internship with designer Lulu Guinness earlier this year studied Psychology at University College London before starting her MA at London College of Fashion.
