From time to time I like to highlight not just designs and boutiques but the actual artists behind these creative pieces. My next feature I am super excited about because I have seen pictures of her here and there throughout social media but there was never a name with the face. It feels really good to finally figure out who this gorgeous woman is and why she is so dope!

“Expressing myself has been really hard. Not just for others to accept but for me as well. When I put myself out there creatively I am being vulnerable. It is like I am showing you an idea that was birthed from an intimate secret place as a child and even growing up I was extremely bullied for expressing myself through fashion. I have always been one to create and develop my own style” – Fennella Like Whoa

Growing up it was really rare to see women who are dark skinned like me in photos, on tv, in movies….and it’s amazingly refreshing to see dark skinned women representing especially ones that are so young who can reach out to our youth, break barriers and be positive role models within our communities.
