Sistahs of Harlem
To be fashionable is to be uncompromising to the things you love. Carmen Webber of Sistahs of Harlem uses her collection as a platform to educate, by marrying education and fashion into a single medium, using clothing as the reference. Each collection draws on disparate aspects of culture and fuses them into a coherent whole. Sistahs of Harlem most recent collection Fall/Spring 2011 focus is on wordsmiths, which feature artist such as Juliana Makuchi and Jhumpa Lahiri. With each collection Carmen Webber draws inspiration from business men and women, the street prophet, school girls, the lingering music from park concerts, the electricity from a dance club, the politics of our world and of course the constant movement of New York City.
