A Bit About Me

I wanted to create fashion that reflected my unique cultural background and personal style.

Born and raised in Maryland , I was always drawn to bohemian, urban, and chic styles, and wanted to create clothing that embodied this aesthetics while also being ethically and sustainably made.

As a minority woman, I also wanted to create a brand that empowered and supported other women, particularly women of color. I saw firsthand how difficult it can be for minority-owned businesses to succeed in the fashion industry, and  wanted to use my platform and years of expertise to make a positive impact and inspire others.

With these goals in mind, I set out to create a line of handmade, ethical fashion that was both stylish and sustainable. As a skilled artisan of sewing, I create limited, one-of-a-kind pieces that are vibrant and confident, and that make a statement of independence and empowerment.

 

Today, our brand is beloved by women who value sustainability, self-expression, and individuality.

Our customers are confident and vibrant, and they love the way our clothing helps them make a statement and stand out. We are proud to be a minority-owned, black-owned business, and we hope to inspire and empower other women to follow their dreams and make a positive impact in the world.
