Barclays Bank: Black History Month Fashion Designer Installation

February 2023

I am honored to have had the opportunity during Black History Month to be highlighted as a Local Black Designer by Barclays Bank during their Black History Month Employee Experience.

After being asked to be part of Barclays Black History Month employee experience, a thousand ideas began circulating.  All I knew, is that I wanted this installation to make a statement.  I wanted it to be a mixture of fashion, fun, and my love of curation.  As I began sketching the design I thought about fun elements I could include like neon signage, balloons, and wigs. So, I contacted a few of my entrepreneur friends and asked if they would contribute a few things to complete my vision. It was a pleasure and so much fun creating an Anara Original fashion Installation for the Downtown, Wilmington Office lobby!  

Thank you Barclays Bank for including me in your celebration and thank you to BHM art week lead & Friend Teona Leonardo for recommending my brand.
