In a bid to celebrate black beauty among African women, a group of sorority sisters have come together to create a photoshoot as they all embark on a journey to Costa Rica.
Dubbing the photoshoot ‘Melanin Illustrated’, their three days trip saw the professional women aged 29-35, celebrating their 10th year anniversary of joining the sorority, Delta Sigma Theta.
The trip coordinator, LaToya Owens tells Yahoo Style the intuition behind the concept.
“Being in a sisterhood means having a support system and someone always there to count on.”
According to Owens, the sorority sisters complimented their look while on nude-colored bathing suits for the photo shoot.
“Black women are often overlooked in beauty. This was our way to shine a light on all types of black beauty.
“Our sorority is all about black excellence. We want to serve as an example and [show] appreciation of black women. Our commitment is to scholarship and service, and this was to honor the sisterhood.” Owens, who is one of the first of the sorority’s chapter at A&M beauty added.
