Rachel Zoe once said "style is a way to say who you are without having to speak". If this quote could be used to describe anyone's passion for fashion, Breona Long would be that person. Her style and fashion sense is daring and eclectic. She makes unconventional pieces werk together to create a statement. Fashion is Breona's true love for as long as she remembers. I had the pleasure of interviewing her and getting to know her better.
Growing up, Breona Long looked up to her mother, who always was fashionable and creating DIY decorations for the house. She sites her mom for encouraging her to pursue her passion by supporting her creative hair and outfit ideas. Having all that creative energy around you can push you to take your dream and turn it into a reality. Breona did just that and attended Kent State University, who has an excellent fashion program. There, she was able to earn the opportunity of a lifetime and live in New York for eight months in an internship program. She bumped elbows with industry veterans and even met Betsey Johnson!
Nowadays, Breona has her eyes on creating her own name and brand for herself. She has several projects in the works, including a fashion blog and youtube channel.
Be on the lookout for this week's #werkingwomenwednesday, Breona Long. She's a rising star in the fashion world. Can you say Black Girl Magic?
