Decolonize Sustainable Style

I’ve been sharing my “conscious style” across social platforms for the last 5 years. But now more than ever I am using my style identity to share that sustainable doesn’t look one way and it’s NOT just worn by a select few. Brown skin, afro textured hair and messages of DECOLONIZATION are most certainly welcomed!
