Paramount Provides Grant to Caribbean Designer in Association with ‘Bob Marley; One Love’ Movie

.post-author a { display: none; } In celebration of the Bob Marley; One Love movie, Paramount Pictures partnered with non-profit organizations Harlem Fashion Row and Icon 360 to present the One Love Fashion Grant. The grant was created with the goal of honoring the legacy of Bob Marley by uplifting and amplifying the under-represented voices within the Black fashion community.

The winner of the grant was IGDALYAH by Igdaliah Pickering. Coming from the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Igdaliah founded IGDALYAH in 2019 after studying fashion design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Igdaliah’s work shows her passion for expressing her cultural heritage through the art of fashion. In the words of Igdaliah herself, IGDALYAH exists to “produce art that challenges the rules of society as we know it.”

A check for $30,000 was presented for IGDALYAH at the New York Fashion Week screening of the ‘Bob Marley; One Love’ Movie. Igdaliah received the grant and was joined on stage by Director Reinaldo Marcus Green.

Green reflected on the evening stating, “Bob carried a heavy burden to give us joyful music…he connects with everybody in every corner of the world.”

“Bob Marley: One Love,” directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and starring British actors Kingsley Ben-Adir as Bob Marley and Lashana Lynch as Rita Marley, hits theaters worldwide on February 14, 2024. Get tickets today at
