Every girls dream is to be in Vogue Magazine. The recognition from this iconic staple in the industry can propel your career. I never in a million years imagined I would be featured for "The Best Street Style" on Vogue.com.
As I began setting up my table for Afropunk with my nerves at all time high I hear my friend Michelle's voice faintly say "Vogue is here and they want to take a photo of you". The senior fashion writer for Vogue.com Marjon Carlos and Ruben Ramos were at my table and wanted to take a photo of me! I quickly introduced myself and headed over for the Polaroid shoot.
I was shocked to discover not only was my photo selected for Vogue.com but they posted my image on Vogue Magazines official Instagram. The picture has since received over 50,000 likes and glowing comments.
My outfit paid tribute to African tribal attire, featured mixed Ankara prints and custom designed converse I embellished with gold studs. I was draped in my jewelry and a Ankara wax print fabric my sister designed into a bandeau. I'm wearing the Shavon midi skirt by Reuben Reuel of Demestiks New York. He has designed for Beyonce! Visit Demestiks New York HERE. My PR Manager/Digital strategist Sherod Lewis executed this designer collaboration and I couldn't be happier.
Dreams do come true no matter how far away they may seem! Dream big jewels and gems!
Thank you to the entire Vogue.com team and photographer Benjamin Rasmussen.
