BEHIND THE SEAMS
“There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.” ~ Graham Greene
One of my fondest childhood memories was watching my mother make quilts by hand. Yes, by hand! I was 7, and this experience sparked my love affair with fashion and developed into a much larger part of my identity over the years. Fashion’s accessibility to everyone as a tool is why I love it.
As a strategy and brand consultant, I help brands realize their full potential through by identifying pain points, opportunities and solutions to complex business challenges.
I also use my creative energy to capture my fashionable looks through my style diary on both Instagram and YouTube.
I am Haitian Canadian, and my background has shaped who I am today. It inspired the name - La Canuck Kreyòl (La Kuh·nuhk Kree·owl). Canuck means Canadian, and Kreyòl means creole in Haitian creole.
Be it curvy or slim, petite or tall, strong shoulders or a thicker midsection, I want to inspire women to embrace their uniqueness because being us is simply beautiful.
Join my colorful world and your desires will be sewn into existence.
