Here's a little blurb from the site (http://myiconictee.com
) about "The Icon Collection":
As a young girl I grew tired of trying to find trendy items that featured beautiful brown girls like me. When I had my daughter the longing to have images that look like her became even stronger and that is how The Icon Collection was born. On a daily basis I see t-shirts, artwork, home decor etc. highlighting the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and others. It is very rare and almost impossible to find things that showcase women of color who are trendsetters in their industries. The Icon Collection’s goal is to change that, to make it a normal experience to see beautiful, trendsetting women of color on artwork, t-shirts, and home décor as role models for our girls!"
I was SO excited when Lauren sent me a shirt I couldn't help but put it on and twirl around proudly! There are so many Icons that go unrecognized, whether its in fashion or home decor, I believe creating things that represent what/who you love is so very important!
