"As an African American licensed architect, I am often assigned labels before I even have an opportunity to speak to them. I wanted to create this line of products to challenge assumptions about my identity, my associations and my profession. My hope is that these messages will inspire people to ask questions about architecture and the wearer's role in it while giving them the opportunity to engage in a deeper conversation and understanding of the the role of diverse designers in the built environment. In other words, less labels - more truth."
