Naomi Sims made her mark as the first Black model to gain world wide recognition in the Sixties. Naomi rocketed to the top of the fashion world when she broke the color barrier in modeling and was emulated by Black women everywhere. She appeared on the cover of Life magazine in 1969.
She is the author of five books on health, beauty and success for the Black woman. Such writings have earned her the reputation as the foremost expert on health and beauty for the Black woman.
Born in Oxford, Mississippi and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, she attended Fashion Institute of Technology and New York University. In 1976, she launched the Naomi Sims Collection sold in department stores and specialty stores. The Naomi Sims Collection has since expanded to include skin care, hair care and cosmetics for the Black woman.
Naomi Sims is proud to now make her collection available to black women everywhere through the convenience of on-line shopping.
