Although Black History Month is over (which I believe we should celebrate all year long and not just one month) I really wanted to take time to highlight a minority woman leaving her mark on the fashion world. She is not a super model or fashion designer, for those of you who have never heard of Bonnie Morrison, Fashion consultant, I suggest you take the time to look her up. When she is not backstage working a show during New York fashion or developing a brand strategy for some of the top designers she can be seen sitting front row at all the big events. She is such an amazing woman with such a strong sense of style. And best of all she is a woman of color who is a very well-known socialite in the world of fashion. When I come across a woman such as Bonnie Morrison who has followed her dreams and passion, it inspires me to keep pressing forward in accomplishing my goals.
A quote by her:
“It’s great to aspire to a profession, and there’s always a demand for good,
smart people anywhere — but don’t aspire to a “lifestyle.” I have a good life,
but it probably looks very different in person. Everyone should aspire to the
life that authentically represents her — that’s the only way to be
This quote really speaks to what I have been saying about being true to myself in everything I do. I believe success will come if I stay true to the life that fully represents me Dani C. and continue to do what I love which we all know is fashion.
Bonnie Morrison has such a classic, yet chic look that I love. She knows how to find the unique vintage pieces which makes her stand out from so many in fashion which is why I LOVE her style! Who do you look to for style inspiration? Who or what inspires you to keep pressing toward your goals?
