What is your passion project? Why did you start it?
What has been the most challenging and most rewarding part of building your project?
What brought you to Brooklyn? How long have you lived here? What Brooklyn neighborhood do you live in?
I have always lived in Brooklyn, because my family has always lived here. I have lived in Brooklyn permanently for 13-14 years. I live on Kings Highway, a very traditional neighborhood with traditional immigrant families. Breaking the mold of style and fashion is often shocking here when a look or piece is unconventional!
Describe your style in 3 words?
Effortless, Chic, Evolving
What is the one fashion accessory you cannot live without?
Where was your last trip and where is your next one?
My last trip in the U.S was to Washington DC. Outside of my birth country of Haiti, my next trip will be a multi-country trip to France, Spain, and Morocco. I will start in Paris then move to Lyon. I will then take the Euro Rail to Spain and from there take a ferry to Morocco. I will be ringing in my birthday in Marrakesh!
If you didn’t live in Brooklyn, where would you want to live?
If I did not live in Brooklyn, I would want to live in Paris. It's always been my favorite city. Plus, I can take weekend trips to London any weekend I want!
