Joelle Jean-Fontaine | Fashion Designer, KRÉYOL,
At KRÉYOL, we celebrate individuality through bold and enticing visual aesthetic. We aim to impact the world one garment at a time, making it about more than just fashion. KRÉYOL is a movement. We aim to enlighten, educate and empower by using fashion to increase awareness of social causes affecting people domestically and abroad.
The influence behind the name is of course our Haitian heritage. However, when one looks into creole elements, we find that there are so many people from different parts of the world that consider themselves to be of this culture. Our food, music, customs, style, struggles and strength are very similar. It matters not that you are from Haiti, or New Orleans, or Cape Verde, or Brazil- we all see life in color. http://iamkreyol.com/
