Fanm Djanm in Haiti

On Thursday, September 25th, 2014, Le Boudoir de Francoise Elizee, an upscale boutique located in the heart of Petion-Ville opened its doors and welcomed the Fanm Djanm movement.

Playing dress up in Tete’s closet

The bed was neatly covered with layers of beautiful prints, textures, and colors. There were so many possibilities that would make the perfect and most interesting outfit, it was impossible to stay focused. Oh, and the accessories!

From Jacmel, with love

We got on the road and headed to Jacmel as soon as I landed in Port-au-Prince. I’ve never been, and Gessica wanted to take me. I was so excited! But I tried to remain neutral so I wouldn’t get disappointed. I’ve learned that things are not always what they seem, and by remaining neutral, I […]

Cocktails and Headwraps At The Cecil

An intimate evening of amazing personal style, headwraps, cocktails, and conversations. That’s what last night was. I met and reconnected with some of the warmest, most positive women in New York.

Sofistafunkin’ at Diner En Blanc

Fanm Djanm Brunch in Brooklyn

I’ve been admiring Phyllisia‘s work since she made the big move to New York City. I remember Ania texted me on the day of her very first performance underground. She told me, “You’re going to LOVE this Haitian American beauty! Check out her stuff.” And she was right. I dropped what I had to do, […]
