You realize just how much representation matters after seeing this teaser trailer.
Marvel’s Black Panther isn’t making its way to theaters until February ’18, BUT that can’t stop us from taking a closer look behind the movies looks.
The films costume designer Ruth Carter who according to Essence, has outfitted some of the culture’s most iconic films from "Malcolm X" and "BAPS" to "Five Heartbeats" and "School Daze", is now taking on Afro-futurism fashions in Black Panther.
“I love being a costume designer because I love telling the stories of people,” she told ESSENCE. “And that’s what costume designers are; they are storytellers.”
The Oscar and Emmy-nominated designer was sure to take to Twitter addressing her inspiration behind iconic looks inspired from various tribes in Africa.
