Born in Montserrat, I relocated to the UK after the Soufrière Hills volcano eruption in '97. Growing up in North London, I developed an appreciation for its multicultural community as well as a passion for sports which shows through my collection designs.
I launched my first collection, The Power Fist Collection, in October 2020 for UK Black History Month after a turbulent year across the globe for many people. The countless videos, stories, articles on top of the pandemic further highlighted the plight of oppression still happening in the world - causing the Fist to once again rise as a symbol.
My brand aims to pay homage and highlight my home, as well as the other beautiful neighbouring islands. I grew up around family from Antigua, St Lucia, Barbados and other islands so many collections are island-centric - but I offer bespoke designs at similar prices if you see a style you like!
Montserrat, also known as the Emerald Isle, is a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. The island is in the Leeward Islands, part of the chain known as the Lesser Antilles, in the West Indies.
The population of the island exceeded 10,000 in the early 1990s, but during the volcano crisis more than two-thirds of Montserratians departed for the UK, neighbouring Antigua, other parts of the Caribbean and USA.
Both eruptions are well documented with videos, images and first-hand experiences shortly after. There are now permanent resources on the island to monitor, study the volcano and negate any danger it may pose to other Montserratians. Google for more information!
