... the other Black experience

FEATURE: "I celebrate strong women with my headwrap line Fanm Djanm"

My name is Paola, and I am a lifestyle blogger based in NYC. I'm originally from Haiti, and I write about everything NYC related. I also love to share some of my Haitian heritage with my followers because to me where I'm from really matters and is a very important part of my story. I recently started a headwrap line called, "Fanm Djanm". In my language, it means "Strong Woman."
I'm starting with the headwrap because:
- In my culture, women who tie their hair are considered uneducated or poor.
- Headwraps are my wardrobe staple.
- Headwraps are not only beautiful, but they're simple, and make every lady look regal (in my opinion).


By Paola Mathé, AFROPUNK Contributor *

Fanm Djanm will be more just than headwraps. The whole movement is to inspire and to empower women around the world to take chances. I hope to expand to Haiti and open some job opportunities for women who need them. I also hope to collaborate with an organization that helps or works with oppressed women around the world. Besides, I supports and am open to the idea of collaborating with other women-owned businesses. It's all about rising together.
The line is available at fanmdjanm.com.

Wow... so glad I came across this. I'm dedicated to my head wraps/bands but I'm stuck with one or two styles. 

weooo, awesome.
