“A cheerful little girl born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, blessed with a wonderful childhood and all I wanted to do when I grew up was to wear fancy dresses like my mom.”
As the daughter of a professional seamstress, I was born into a world of glamorous fashions and taught the skill of sewing at an early age. I was exposed to all genres of art and encouraged to freely explore creativity.
Confident in defining my own style and voted “Best Dressed” in high school, I was sold on the art of fashion design. As a college student, however, I was intrigued with courses in Computer Science and grew excited with the expansive possibilities in Technology. Earning a BAS in Technology Management and AA in Fashion Merchandise and Marketing, I thus found another avenue of creativity by developing programs for education and major computer companies.
By day, I have a career in Technology and on nights and weekends; I’m a feverish seamstress, Fashion Designer and Image Consultant. Funny thing, although I knew how to sew as a
youngster, I gravitated towards crafting and interior décor and only in the last couple of years have I dived back into sewing and designing fashions. Sewing has become my therapy in facing life’s journey. Not neglecting my love to dress and a recipient of constant compliments on my style, I grew inspired to fulfill what I feel is my purpose and assignment; to creatively strategize ways to uplift and empower women through fashion and style. So in 2012, I embraced my dream, became certified as an Image/Christian Consultant and launched my business in Fashion Design, Image Stylist Consultancy, and Presenter.
stores. I showcased my first fashion collection “After I Do” in 2014 at Christian Fashion Week in Tampa, Fl. in which one of my looks was featured in the New York Times. In addition I designed a JR teen Fashion Stylist bag which was featured on abcnews.com. In 2015 my design was awarded a winner at renowned fashion blogger, Mimi G’s Fashion & Sewing Conference in L.A.
Passionate about inspiring women to walk in confidence, my mission is to transform her appearance, inspiring her to dress like a lady by bringing awareness to her worth and encouraging her to step into her purpose.
