The Firsts, with UK Elle’s Kenya Hunt

Pretty Posts |

“The Firsts” is a series of conversations where women share those moments that aren’t always talked about, in the hope that they inspire, encourage and comfort.

As Deputy Editor of British Elle, Kenya Hunt is the name on a lot of lips right now. The magazine has been looking amazing over the past two years. It has included the highly acclaimed February cover of Stormzy and Jourdan Dunn and the mega cover starring a stunningly pregnant Slick Woods, which was a part of the historical wave of September issues featuring black women. We are long time admirers of Kenya and we are inspired by her level of brilliance. We will be watching and supporting her as she continues to pave the way for all women of colour. Please join us to discover some of this trailblazer’s “Firsts.”

Sherri McMullen is a force to be reckoned with. A relentless supporter of women designers, a worldwide hunter for the most compelling and emotional finds for her devoted client base – and beyond all that, a wonderful, inspiring friend – we sat down with Sherri this summer to talk about her path to entrepreneurship, becoming a mother while running her company, and what women really want when they shop.

Ten years after setting down her retailer roots in North Oakland, and just ahead of expanding her business to downtown Oakland this Fall, she shares her story with us here.

Designer Spotlight: Claudia Li

Pretty Posts |

In my career, there have been very few brands that I have felt an instant connection with. But this magical moment happened one blustery day last winter when I had the absolute pleasure of being introduced to Claudia Li. We were in a showroom with several racks of her pieces. The designer and her namesake label presented a genuineness and authenticity that you rarely find in a brand. Between the unexpected asymmetrical shapes, gorgeous wooden button details, and one seriously beautiful bell-sleeved red coat that I still dream about, I was instantly hooked.

Fast forward to September of that year, at her NYFW presentation, where I knew for sure that what I felt was not a fluke. With a selection of whimsical box bags, the prettiest yellow tulip print rain slicker, and obi-style tops, Claudia cemented herself as one of the “It” brands to watch, and I am sure her name will soon be the tongue of every industry insider.  So, when the opportunity arose to interview her, I felt immensely privileged to hear her thoughts about everything from what inspires her designs to growing up in a family of artists to what it was like working for some of the hottest brands in the market. So read on, Pretty Birds, and meet the indomitable Claudia Li!
