Who is Angéliqua McNair, and what was your motivation for starting your brand?
As a young girl, I always knew the kind of woman that I wanted to be but didn't know what I wanted to do. My paternal grandmother designed and made hats, and my maternal grandmother was always "fly." I used to invade my grandmother's closet for jewelry, sweaters, and purses. Some pieces in the fashion blogs were pieces my grandmother once wore. I prided myself on being my grandmother's mini-me.
I had a love for arts and fashion, so, in middle school, I went to the Ronald Edmonds Learning Center and majored in Fine Arts & Design. Attending the Ronald Edmonds Learning Center is what helped me figure out the lane I wanted to go in. They taught us to be young professionals. I shared my goals with my art teacher Ms. Jonna Padilla, and she pushed me to start building my fashion portfolio, so I did. I even stayed after school late.
