In 2008 we had a vision to create a custom apparel business that offered budget friendly pricing without sacrificing quality. Over the years we have created countless items to please our customers. To remain relevant, we saw a need to innovate and reinvent ourselves. At Essentially Noir we are broadening our business so that our customers can get what they need when they need and be ensured they are supporting Black business. As a Black business we want to make sure our core customers continue to have access to empowering apparel, tools for self-sustainment, and custom items to meet their personal and professional needs. We look forward to contributing further to the legacy of the Black community through art, style, and knowledge.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
As the Founder and CEO of Essentially Noir it is my desire to create fun and inspiring items and ideas. When I think about “essential” I think of life and style. Noir is of course a form Black. If I have learned anything over the past few years as a Black woman, it is that self-expression and the ability to sustain yourself are essential. Essentially Noir is my way of bringing my learnings and the ideas in my head and yours to life while also inspiring you to eat well and learn to sustain yourself.
