It’s hard to say how often I have heard people voice that they don’t dress the way they want to because they are worried or fearful of the stares they may or may not receive from strangers.

Editorial Shoot for Express Magazine: The “I Am Who I Am” Looks

“Fashion repeats itself…if you have style you can wear whatever you want, even a black dress with your hair wrapped.”
“I express my own diversity with style freely, without being concerned about what society says is acceptable.”
“Style is a vehicle that can give you the ability to explore or experience different times and cultures.”
“This look makes me feel strong and fierce, like a strong black queen, full of life ready to take on any circumstances.”
