My name is Shonette Ferrell 37yrs old freelance Designer. Fashion is my passion, fashion is my addiction and designing is my Gift. I just started working on my own clothing line last year. One of my goal is to pursue my clothing line and open my own Boutique. Opening my own boutique and in the same breath being able to reach out and touch the souls of women of Domestic Abuse is a passion of mines. My flair for fashion, craft making and the ability to create my own designs has guided to this path.
My clothing line Vera Monae represent the women in my life that was losted from domestic abuse and the ones that survive. How the name came about? Vera was my aunt that died at the 17yrs old from domestic abuse. Monae is my sister middle name that survived from the domestic abuse. So, the clothing line is for all Womens that suffered or thats still going through the struggle of Domestic Abuse. The three women that my family lost from the Abuse live through my clothing line Vera Monae.
I would love to work with some new models. Doing charity fashion donating half of the proceeds to a Womens Domestic Organization and have a Youth Domestic Abuse Awareness Show. I want to have these projects Annual.
Vera Monae Collection is an expression of a Woman's Soul... A touch of elegance....Incredible sensuality, smothering hints of sexuality that embraces a woman's feminality without giving up the definitive contour of her body....My line of clothes reaches from the excutive on the move to the student with that Urban Swag but recognizes her need to be seen admired and adored....appreciated for the Women she is the freedom to be classy yet chic.
