March is Women’s History Month and today, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. Being a West African Black woman with albinism has been such a complex, often challenging, and ultimately teachable experience. Today I wanted to take some time to really reflect on what it has meant to me to be a woman.
Over and over, slowly but surely, a new concept has been forming in my mind. It is an idea about a new mindset for living and the work I create.

It’s the middle of winter and there’s nothing I want to do more than stay in my house layered in a hoodie and leggings with the heat turned up.

So what’s the best way to ease the transition? To embrace all the good fall fashion the season has to offer! I’ve compiled a six-look launchpad to get you thinking all things autumn. From layering jackets to cozy knitwear, I’ve got you covered.
Summer is here and I am more than ready to bathe in rays and heat. I’m a true summer baby and I love basking in the warmth, glow, and magic that this season has to offer. What better way to welcome summer than with a pastel-toned beach shoot?
While looking for different ways to explore and promote Sororum I linked up with director and fellow Ryerson University alum Jessamine Fok. We had worked together before on a previous project and when the opportunity presented itself to create something new we took it. Her cinematic storytelling skills and my creativity and fashion pieces joined forces to tell a story celebrating womanhood, sisterhood, and the beauty of African wax prints.
I’ve known @JonathanRightNow for a few years now and what has always struck me about him is his amazing collection of high end archival fashion pieces. As an admirer of fashion, I’m drawn to his extensive collection and so I finally decided to pay him a visit and talk to him about his wardrobe of Givenchy, Rodarte, Comme des Garcons, Hood By Air, Yves Saint Laurent and more.
What are your thoughts on thrift and vintage shopping? Do you love it, hate it, or not have any luck?

When I first saw the Air Jordan Season of Her collection I was instantly taken aback. The dreamy colorways. The lush texture. The fact that it is an exclusively women’s release.
