I had the awesome pleasure of reaching out to a young woman whose name you will definitely be seeing in all of the fashion magazines before you know it. Sandra Amiraa Vainqueur, better know as AmiraaVee was born and raised in Maryland where she was brought up in a Haitian household.
Currently at the ripe age of 24-years old, the self-made maven knew big things were in store for her future long before graduating with a degree in fashion business. Since graduating she has worked in luxury houses within the corporate world, but later realized that a nine to five career just wasn't the correct path for her. She's accomplished quite a bit so far in the world of fashion including working on Kanye's Yeezy Season 3 show to her hair campaign with natural hair line, Creme of Nature.
While trying to make AmiraaVee a household name, she has been working diligently on quite a few things including her upcoming look book, summer campaign, brand collaborations, and a lifestyle reality web-series called “FashionFriendsBeLike” that she will be both starring in and co-producing.
In her spare time, AmiraaVee enjoys shooting and perfecting her ever so amazing craft. If you're interested in hearing more about this fashion mogul in the making, keep scrolling to check out the full interview below.
