From draping fabrics around my pre- teen body, to watching runway shows while waiting for the school bus, I knew from a very young age that I was destined to become a fashion designer. In 2008, the same year I graduated high school, I started my brand CheyenneKimora, and nine years later it's a thriving business with customers all over the world. CheyenneKimora is brand that is ' Handmade for the self-made' catering to all the boss woman out there who have made a way out of no way! Besides my family, who has given me support from day one I didn't have anyone to show me 'how to sew' or 'how to run a business' i've learned from my triumphs, as well as my downfalls. And I'm so excited to be able to create a platform where I can share my knowledge with you... Welcome to CheyenneKimora University.
