African fashion pops up in the LA!

Happy Holidays, curvy curlies! I am so grateful for the amazing opportunities this brand has afforded me - sponsorships, panel discussions and a brand ambassadorship! Last weekend, I had the extreme pleasure of representing African inspired, DC-based designer, Simply Cecily (check her out!) at the Zuvaa pop up shop in downtown, Los Angeles.

Zuvaa is a global, online marketplace of African fashions, curated by the lovely Kelechi Anyadiegwu out of New Jersey. The Zuvaa team has hosted several of these two-day shopping events, but this was the first time they made it to the left coast. 

As a lover of fashion and all things African, being able to connect with women who share the same affinity for the Motherland was fantastic. As hip and pseudo-cultured as Los Angeles likes to think it is, the opportunities and events to celebrate the African diaspora are few and far between. Thank you, Kelechi for bringing such a rich experience to my neck of the woods! And thank you Simply Cecily for choosing me as an ambassador for your brand.
