“You are never too young to chase your dreams.”
Today on The Feat. we feature one of the youngest yet dopest black fashion designers in the game, Kheris Rogers.
Kheris is the extraordinary 11-year-old creator for The Culture who took being bullied for her complexion and turned it into booming fashion line that’s been supported by Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and made her the youngest person ever to take their designs to the runways of New York Fashion Week.
as her young heroin’s origin storer goes, after several incidents with students and teachers, Kheris’ older sister posted a pic of her and added the hashtag #FlexinInHerComplexion and before either of them knew it, the post went viral. And like any smart enterprising young person, she capitalized and her fashion line was born. She started with T-shirts emblazed with positive messages and once those started selling out she expanded to other types of clothing for tweens including dresses and even hoodies for kids that’s both stylish and affordable.“Always stand up for what you believe, no matter what age you are.”
And now Flexin’ In My Complexion is a brand on the rise and Kheris has become a role model for young girls of color everywhere while staying true to her self and repping The Culture to the fullest. #BlackGirlMagic
