Im Killy Vincent a twenty-something fashion design graduate and a proud Haitian girl. Im originally born and raised from Port au Prince, Haiti. I was adopted when I was about 8 years old, by my new American Family; So I flew all the way from Haiti to the United States via Indiana. Although there have been lots of up and downs and sometimes even hard to see where the future is headed, I’ve always had one thing to keep me steady…..And that’s FASHION! Fashion has been a love of mine since I was a little girl, so I started sewing and exploring what I loved about it, but I didn’t truly know what I wanted out of it. But I started realizing that I loved sewing, going to fabric stores and could stay there for hours picking out fabric, I could also be in the studio or my room planning designing an outfit for hours. And really in the midst of it all not only did I realize it was my passion but I think it’s one of my soul purposes. This dream that I have I realize I want more than anything for it to turn into a reality. So I started this blog in the early 2012, it started out as a way to express myself; write how I was feeling, and to show my style but along the way its become so much more.
The name of my blog “Haitian Fashionista” definitely speaks for itself, it’s about a Haitian girl figuring out her way in this tipsy twirly world while still staying true to herself; and as simple as that concept is; its not always so easy. I live by my motto which is to “ALWAYS say true to oneself“. Don’t change for anybody, or let anyone make you feel less than you are. I didn’t always have enough confidence or confidence at all; but Fashion has really change that and given me the boost I needed. Being ( Haitian-French) is a important part of what makes me ME but and a huge part of who I am as Killy, without that side of me I don’t think I would be the person I am today.
Besides being proudly haitian, I’m a foodie and avid adventurer who always has the travel bug, who loves interior with a huge passion for fashion and non-profit organizations. Im an artist and definitely one that can be quite indecisive with a whole string of hobbies and love. I love photography I’ve come quite obsessed with cameras and lens. Love thrifting/shopping and just finding the perfect outfit to wear. I love sports, acting and singing; all of these which are passions of mine you might see once in awhile on the blog and as well on my youtube channel….so stay ready.
You guys already know so much about me by now, so I hope you enjoy reading my blog as my style continues to evolve and change over time, and as I continue to chase my dreams. I also hope this inspires you to live out your dreams and find your passion. I love getting mail, whether it is a simple hello or a question.
