We had the opportunity to speak with Mandy Coffey. Mandy is a digital entrepreneur and joyful full figured model based in Arizona. As a single mom to 3 young kids, she dedicates her social media platforms to spreading positivity in hopes of leaving the world that she raises her kids in a better place. This entire interview can be summed up in one quote: “Beauty is in the heart of the beholder” by H.G. Wells. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and it is important to internally commit to self-love.
The Remix: Hip Hop X Fashion Documentary recently had its debut on Netflix on July 22nd. This documentary profiles Black visionaries in fashion who rewrote narratives on the runway and turned hip-hop style into a global phenomenon. The documentary features interviews with hip-hop fashion pioneers Misa Hylton, April Walker, Kerby Jean-Raymond and Dapper Dan. We had the exceptional opportunity to sit down with both directors (Lisa Cortés & Farah Z. Khalid) and talk about the film, social justice, and the social, positive impact of the genre of hip-hop.
