Clarisa Wilson Named President of Fashion Fair Cosmetics

Fashion Fair Cosmetics has a long-standing history in the beauty business as one of the formidable beauty companies created for African Americans. Over the years, Fashion Fair has gone from being the preeminent color cosmetics line to a bit player in an industry filled with makeup companies producing amazing cosmetics for a wide range of complexions. With the recent announcement regarding Clarisa Wilson, there is sure to be a major change in the way Fashion Fair positions itself in the beauty industry. Clarisa is a major beauty industry executive who has worked with a wide variety of ethnic beauty brands including Mizani and Carol’s Daughter. She has a knack for building out and growing brands from a niche standpoint into mainstream successes. The CEO of Johnson Publishing Company recently released this statement regarding Clarisa’s appointment as head of Fashion Fair:

“We are elated to have Clarisa Wilson at the helm of Fashion Fair Cosmetics. Her remarkable track record at Carol’s Daughter and L’Oreal USA is a clear indication of exciting things to come for our brand” said Desiree Rogers, CEO of Johnson Publishing Company.  “I look forward to developing a collaborative partnership with such an industry authority and visionary.”

We are really excited to see what Clarisa does as the new president of Fashion Fair. We are all about supporting African American beauty companies and would love to see Fashion Fair take progressive and exciting new steps in the right direction so that there are even more options for women of color.
