NEW WAY OF FASHION, NEW TYPE OF OWNER

When you hear the title “business executive” do you think of me? Do you think of a black, female entrepreneur, who, through fashion, is breaking down barriers and busting through ceilings to bring about a much needed change in the industry?

I ask that you do.

"I started my career as a professional dancer and performing artist. I know all too well the importance of having clothing that moves with your body and I deeply understand this connection between clothing and confidence. I believe that what you wear impacts how you feel."

- Stacey Martin

My Inspiration

FIRST A SPARK, THEN A FLAME

"Dance is my expression, my passion, my release, my education. It taught me dedication, persistence, perseverance and how to have thick skin. It also opened my eyes to the gap in the market between fitness and fashion clothing. It was during my time as a dancer that I founded my fashion start-up: KANIA Couture Inc."

Fast forward to 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic Stacey Martin pivots her company.

"With only 14% of major fashion brands being run by a female executive and less than 0.5% of black females receiving venture capital funding, I am at a disadvantage but ready for change, ready to be an example of what's possible!"

"In dance and fashion, I very rarely see leaders who look like me. I want to pave the way for those who wish to follow.
