RISING IN THE CITY

New York City has been in the DNA of our brand since its inception. New York City is where potentials are nurtured in the furnace of struggles to yield visionaries. New York City is where denials and darkness can merge to build the bridge to opportunities and light. To rise in the city, we must walk through the pavements of failures with confidence, endurance, and optimism to persevere into the light we desire. We must be more persistent than our problems, more determined than our obstacles, and have enough optimism even for our naysayers. 

This capsule collection was inspired, by all the Queens from all over the world overcoming, pursuing, and living out their best life, especially those in the BIG APPLE. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your journey of becoming YOU!
