I am lover of all things beautiful and have an obsession with fabrics, textiles, and accessories. While communities of color tend to fuel the most innovative and creative concepts from fashion, food, technology, and in just about everything else in the world, there’s nothing more beautiful or powerful than sharing our own culture, narrative, fashion & style, art, ways of knowing, and ideas on our own terms. It’s just hard to figure out when and where we can connect.
A major long term goal and my personal mission is to embrace, support, and promote what’s going on in our communities. I am more into the fashion scene, but I really want to expand into other areas such as art, conferences, POC owned businesses/brands/services, community events, recognition of the good things that are happening, fashion shows, etc.
This is my plea begging for information from you. If you have information on what’s doing down in our communities, please let me know so I can pass the info along. It’s cool if there are events that are promoted for everyone to attend, but again I am on a search for events that support communities of color. I am also looking for culturally relevant events that are taking place in the Midwest/ Heartland region, as well. Let’s get the word out. Send information my way via email, contact forms or comment sections. Be forewarned, last minute events may not get scooped. Timing is everything.
Please, remember that I am a little bit bougie (though, my bank account respectfully disagrees), so VIP is always appreciated.
I can’t wait to see what events are coming up. Thank you in advance for your support and suggestions. I will see you out there!
