The yearly trip to New York was a world wind of networking, fashion, friends and having a good time. For those who follow me on Instagram and on Snap Chat for 2 weeks I was in the US for a number of fun festivities. First I headed to Philadelphia for two days for Made in America Festival, which consisted of seeing the likes of Rihanna, Chance the Rapper, Cold Play and many more of my favourite music artists. Then I headed back to New York for Fashion Week events, parties and of course to catch-up with old and new friends.
New York is such a fast pace city, with so much going for young creatives and most importantly the opportunity to collaborate. When I was out there I really saw young, smart women come together and work on projects and just bring one another in on opportunities which was so empowering to witness. It is something I want to embrace here in the UK, we have amazing black girls killing it within their creative area’s of expertise and it is important that we stand together and create amazing moments. Especially when the opportunities are not being handed to us, we have to stand and create them together!
