A Chicago girl living & thriving in NYC. Sydney is an accessory designer, fashion blogger, roller-skater, writer, and model. When she’s not busy listening trap music, you can find her working in the fashion and beauty industries, cooking southern infused Jamaican food, or spending time with friends and family. A work in progress & a masterpiece. Follow her on Instagram @sydblaylock or on her blog, ‘a colored museum’, at sydneyblaylock.com.
This blog is inspired by the play which I read, viewed, and studied “The Colored Museum”, written by George C. Wolfe, which explores the experiences and identities of African-Americans in their rawest form while exposing historical stereotypes, the black image, and issues within the entertainment industry. After watching a remount of the play I was inspired to create my own ‘colored museum’ to expose the beauty of “Blackness” and highlight experiences of people of color.
I want to inspire all the creative people out there, those who enjoy art, fashion, and Black culture as much as I do. This is for you. This is for us. All love. [contact: firstname.lastname@example.org]
