Roseberry defined the collection as a work “about fantasy, this is about escapism, and as much as possible and as close as we can get, this is about truly fine art,” as previously reported by WWD. 

Carey is the latest name to join the long list of celebrities who have embraced the sheer trend, which dominated 2023 and is still seen on current red carpet events in Hollywood. Florence Pugh, Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, Sydney Sweeney and more stars have worn sheer looks in the past couple of months.

“When I first started in the music business, I was often told to conform to certain expectations. I was not encouraged to focus on my love for Black music. It took countless arguments, endless tantrums — I’ll call them tantrums — and mostly unwavering determination but, eventually, I was able to reveal my authentic self, as they say, and create music that came from my heart. In doing so, I discovered a newfound sense of freedom and fulfillment,” she said.

The Black Music Collective event was held ahead of the 2024 Grammy Awards ceremony, which will take place on Sunday in Los Angeles.
