How Black Panther Became a Fashion Force to Reckon With

It’s a rare sight to come across movies that not only capture the hearts of their audience but also make a lasting imprint on the world of fashion. I can see why millions of people rushed to the cinemas to watch Black Panther. It is certainly worth all the hype and buzz it’s receiving right now.

Black Panther has definitely taken the fashion industry by storm, with everyone strolling to watch in their beautiful African attires. The ingenuity invested in every outfit in the movie is priceless. Have you seen the movie?

Black Panther Fashion Message

Black Panther sent a strong message to the fashion industry. Aside from the outfits, it gave designers of colour the opportunity to fully express their creative ideas in fashion. This was a privilege that is unfortunately difficult to come by in the industry. In all my years studying the fashion world, I learned that talent alone is not enough to get your work to the forefront. It’s so much more than that. You need connections and money to make your way in. So unless you are well connected and rich or in the position to get financial help, say with Lendgreen Installment Loans, to kick your fashion business moving, you would struggle. 

Black Panther created an avenue for designers of colour to show off the beauty on African fashion. It opened people’s eyes to how beautiful and colourful African fashion can be. Which would in time create more awareness of African designs and fashion designers of colour.

 

The Fashion Buzz

I believe the buzz around Black Panther is shining lights on African and African-American designers. Black Panther helped inspire pieces with the infusion of African prints and a dash of African culture represented in creative designs. It’s strange how African-inspired fashion have been left unnoticed for so long. But thanks to the coming of Black Panther we are not only given the opportunity to see African designs in its full light, we also get to see how it relates to the future. Black Panther shows a world which is technologically advanced thus giving people the chance to see how African-inspired fashion can fit today and the future.

What I Believe

To me this is extremely exciting. I’m always happy when minorities are given a voice. And there’s no better way to speak up than through your creative works.

I see this new development in the fashion scene yielding a positive response. More people will be open to trying what’s new, a culture that they’re not familiar with. As the hype for Black Panther continues, there will be more people embracing futuristic African styles. I also believe that famous designers will start incorporating a touch of African to their designs. But most of all, I am absolutely hopeful that more designers of colour will be given an equal chance to showcase their ingenuity. The fashion industry is dynamic and highly responsive to what’s happening in the world. There’s a lot to thank Black Panther for. I know that there’s more for us to see.

 

Have you seen the Black Panther movie? What are your thoughts?

The Most Lucrative Blogging Niches

Blogging has really taken off in the last 5 years. There are now millions of blogs available. The blogging industry has changed from what it was when I started blogging 5 years ago. There are more blogs in various niches, and it has all become very competitive. Since I started blogging, I have seen many blogs move from a particular niche to a lifestyle niche or become more varied. With my blogging experience, I have come to spot the most lucrative blogging niches, and why more bloggers are setting up blogs in those niches.

Fashion and Beauty Blogs

Fashion and Beauty is one of the most popular blogging niches that work well together. Most fashion bloggers are also beauty bloggers and vice versa. I guess the reason this works great is because the fashion and beauty industries are marketing sisters; most women interested in fashion are also interested in beauty. And these are the same women writing and reading these blogs. With this niche, one is usually the primary niche, while the other a secondary.

The fashion and beauty industry is worth millions of pounds, which makes it a very lucrative blogging niche. It is also one of the easiest niche to blog, which is why it is saturated. It usually doesn’t take a lot of effort to get a fashion and beauty blog running. But for you to stand out from the rest, you would have to think outside the box and bring a lot more to the table. This is where your creativity, writing and photography skills come in.

Because the fashion and beauty blogging niche is so saturated, it can be tricky to get to the brands to notice you enough to offer you samples. And it is even a lot more tricky to get past the getting samples to review for free stage, which can feel like a never-ending phase.

Having said that, it is one of the most lucrative blogging niches we have today. The sky is only the beginning with a quality fashion/beauty blog. You can earn thousand of pounds a month from collaborating with brands on blog posts, attending events, and social media promotions. Regardless of how saturated the blogging industry may appear, there is always room for amazing blogs, so don’t let the numbers deter you.

 

Lifestyle Blogs

I love lifestyle blogging. It is fast becoming a popular niche. The fact that it is so varied and flexible makes it an interesting niche to write about and read. It is also another lucrative blogging niche. The possibility to earn money through lifestyle blogging is endless. Established bloggers can earn money reviewing lifestyle products/services, writing sponsored posts, promoting products and services on social media and so on.

The lifestyle niche is one niche I truly enjoy writing about because it allows my creativity shine. I hate being in a box. So the fact that I can write varied posts keeps me writing. There is room for more quality lifestyle blogs. Lifestyle blogging is very personal, so there would never be enough lifestyle blogs around.

The way to shine in this niche is to be yourself. There is only 1 YOU, so make sure you make the most of it. Write about interesting things going on in your life, and let your personality through your writing. Your tribe will find you.

 

Parent Blogs

Parent blogs also known as mummy/daddy blogs are on the rise. Sometimes it feels like I am the only work-from-home mum that is not a parent blogger. Many fashion/beauty blogger gradually become parent bloggers once they pop and I can see why. It is super easy to write about what you deal with everyday. And it kind of falls into lifestyle blogging as well since parenting is a lifestyle choice for almost all of us.

I wasn’t thinking about the most lucrative blogging niches when I started blogging. If I was, I would have been tempted to include parenting posts on here or to set up a separate parent blog when I became a parent. I just wanted a space to write about things that interested me, and I didn’t want my kids on the blog constantly.

Another thing I didn’t want was to rely on my kids to blog if that makes sense. I didn’t want my work to be solely about my kids and my life as a parent. Deep thinking is what I do, and I overthink everything. Which can be a blessing and a curse at the same time. I mean what if they were not interested in the blog or didn’t want to be a part of it once they are old enough to understand what it was about? What happens when they are off to high school or university? Would that be the end of my parent blog? Yes, I am a long-term thinker and I plan to keep blogging until I can no longer type. So this is not a fill-in-the-gap job or career.

The parenting niche is saturated like all other niches, but it is also another very lucrative niche. I read hundreds of blogs a week and many of them cover parenting, and I can see how well they are doing with brand collaborations and various sponsored deals. So I know it is a lucrative niche.

There is always room for more quality blogs so don’t let the millions of amazing parent blogs put you off.

 

Food Blogs

One thing I love about food blogs is the amazing food photography many of the blogs have. I can get filled for lunch just by scrolling through some food blogs.

Great photography is an essential for most blogs, and it is one of the easiest ways to stand out from the crowd. So if you are new and want to shine through, work on your photography skills.

I have written a few food blog posts; they fell under my lifestyle category and they took me out of my comfort zone which was great. I admire food bloggers. I can see a lot of work goes into what we see and I applaud them for that.

The food blogging industry is saturated but not as much as the other niches, and I can see why. Having an established food blog means you a great recipe developer with amazing photography skills. Two skills not so common. Which is why the best food bloggers are laughing all the way to the bank!

 

Do you blog? Which niche do you fall under? What do you think of these lucrative blogging niches?
