Look, representations matters tremendously. And the first step to this is acknowledgement. Not many businesses take the time to get to know the people they want to shell out hard-earned money with them. Which is why so many designers burn out before fully reaching their potential.
Carmakoma is a brand that truly sees the women they design items for. Not who they believe we should be, who we are and they style us accordingly. Am I the only one that feels incredibly… special about this? Because of this warm and fuzzy feeling, I firmly believe you oughta know Carmakoma.
