I am a fashion changemaker on a mission to empower women, to advocate for diversity, and to champion conscious fashion.
As a writer and storyteller, I am passionate about empowering women to find their voice and discover the strength in their stories. I truly believe that when a woman discovers what she stands for, she stands even taller. As a woman of color, this is important to me because I believe it is important for us to not only create visibility, but to make loud, powerful statements that will leave a mark on the world.
What does this have to do with conscious fashion?
80% of the people making our clothes are women of color, whose voices are often suppressed and disempowered everyday making the clothes that we wear. When I realized this common thread, I could not separate the two- both movements are entangled within each other.
Conscious fashion is indeed, a woman's issue.
And it is my hope that my voice will help to illuminate the causes that I believe in.
Will you join my movement?
