EveryStylishGirl, a media startup that provides Black and Brown women opportunities to amplify their voices in fashion, media and beauty, has compiled a global directory of Black and Brown editors, writers and stylists as a way of networking for emerging creatives. 

Founded in 2016 by social editor of New York magazine’s The Cut, Nana Agyemang, EveryStylishGirl operates in-person (and recently virtual) events in cities like New York, Washington, DC., and Los Angeles. Agyemang launched the online platform after noticing the lack of representation within fashion and media, so the initiative hosts annual conferences — dubbed Sip N’ Slay — to empower women of color and help them gain more professional opportunities. 

"I struggled so much as a young girl in Ohio getting connections in the industry. It was literally impossible," she told Vogue. "There's so much talent we're missing out on when we forget about those women who don't work in major global cities."

The application for the EveryStylishGirl directory is available for an array of professions, including writers, stylists, fashion/beauty influencers, marketing and public relations. Companies who want to utilize the EveryStylishGirl directory can also select between two monthly subscription options, the first tier enabling access to the directory and the second one offering more extensive services such as applicant screening. 

For those interested in accessing the directory, simply fill out a form on Google Docs here. Additionally, visit the EveryStylishGirl website to learn more about the platform and their mission.
