“Fashion With A Human Touch” isn’t just a tag line. It’s a call to action and a mission that is inspired by Kesi’s Jamaican heritage, and her deep rooted belief that fashion should support, not harm, everyone along the value and production chain; that it should elevate entrepreneurs the world over, and that it can make a positive dent in the universe.
“Fashion that feels as good for the owner as it does for the producer, that celebrates the beauty of the artist, as well as the wearer is what I’m after”? Founder, Creative Director? ~ Kesi Gibson
