Black History Month Spotlight: How Celeb Stylist Harrison T. Crite Thinks More African-Americans Can Get Ahead in Fashion

In honor of Black History Month 2019, FN is celebrating African-American movers and shakers in footwear and fashion by recognizing their accomplishments and inviting them to share insight into how the industry can make bigger diversity strides.
Harrison T. Crite may have come from humble beginnings in Memphis, Tenn., but the celebrity stylist and image consultant has quickly built a name for himself in the ultracompetitive New York City market.
In the near decade since he made his New York Fashion Week debut as a fashion assistant and then landed an internship at BET’s “106 and Park,” Crite has built up quite the résumé. His client roster includes talent for E!, ABC and NBC, and his avant garde styling has appeared on the covers and pages of several magazines including The Source, Vulkan, Made and Afropolitian.
But keeping high-profile celebs in eye-catching looks alone isn’t the only thing keeping Crite busy. When he’s not creating striking looks for the stars, he’s doing graphic design work and serves as the creative director for the men’s accessory web store Axcexx.com.
Here, Crite shares how he’s become a go-to stylist and why its crucial for African-Americans to support one another.
