MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH FASHION IS NOT QUITE A FAIRYTALE.

When I was 10, I dreamt of becoming the fastest woman on earth. But while on the track, literally, to becoming a star athlete, spectators began complimenting me on my signature hairstyle: cornrows with vibrant barrettes. This was my first introduction at making a fashion statement….

Since then, I’ve turned ‘making my statement’ into ‘making customized statements’ for others. And from that, I love and thrive to be in the forefront of image development so I can explore and unveil new levels of creativity.

After hanging up my running shoes to focus on image development, I’ve sharpened my sense of communication through innumerable tours, in places far and wide — whether pounding the flashy streets of New York City to Lagos, Nigeria  fashion scene. 

Throughout, I’ve learned what makes for good advertising — the personal preference — through my roles in: fashion styling, corporate/brand image development, consumer discovery, visual merchandising, photography, digital media, and motion creative direction. 

Now, I believe our creations are extensions of ourselves. They carry our energies and our intentions out into the world. That’s why  making a statement is an extension in every venture I am apart of .

I help individuals, corporations & fashion brands enhance their image based on who they are, what they do and what they want to achieve.

I create videos and audio experiences to help women of color be more confident in their own skin and self-development discussions.

I help homegrown fashion brands know who their customers are and how to talk to her.

I select one of a kind fashion accessories for women who wear minimal wardrobe but wants maximal fashion accessories for her look!

  • It's rare that you come across such a standout talent like Mikara. I had the pleasure of working with Mikara on new business endeavor.

    She is one exceptional and highly skilled professional, not just in the sector of fashion and styling, but in matters of branding, corporate identity and business development in general.
