Paola Mathe is her muse each time she shares her “snippets of colours” to the world through her fashion especially the turban. A Haitian entrepreneur who is inspires the world through her culture, life and fashion. She runs Fanm Djanm which means “strong woman”.
Fanm Djamn is a collection of turbans which has become a lifestyle brand celebrating strong women all over the world. As an African descent, turbans or head wraps are not strange to her, she styles it effortlessly in different forms such as bows, twists and in buns.
When she isn’t on her signature headwrap, she opts for the masculine hat or a fedora. Lately, she finds pleasure sharing her style in colours, her bright coloured turbans and androgynous style will give one a reason to love her bold and audacious style.
One time on her page, she shares how uneasy it has been as an entrepreneur but she finds courage when she looked to the sky and felt the “snow flurries” touching her skin.
#ad • I remember speaking at Syracuse University two years ago, and someone in the audience mentioned how graceful and confident I was, and how I made running a business look easy. I told her of the time I found myself crying on a random Harlem sidewalk once because I was so tired. I felt alone and my body was aching from carrying so much. So I just let go and started sobbing, and the tears wouldn't stop flowing. Then I remember looking up at the beautiful sky, and snow flurries started falling down, tickling my face. Once I was done crying, I wiped my face, got back up with a new kind of strength, and just kept pushing with my giant load until I reached my destination. That's what starting a small business from scratch is like. It's not glamour and glitz. Sometimes I have to wake up at 4:30 to catch the right light. Or carry more than my arms can hold for a long period of time. Or taking my shoes off to get down and dirty. Or just breaking down every now and then. But in the end, it's all about doing and believing in your abilities. #LIVETODEFY @SORELfootwear #findingpaola
