A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, and something caught my attention. It was a young girl modeling in what appeared to be a St Joseph Convent Grenville school uniform. I was in awe, this was an event in New York, and there was a school uniform from Grenada being part of the trend. I inquired as to who was the brainchild behind this, and I was told it was a Grenadian designer known as Fe Noel.
A few days later, I came across a video, again while scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and it was of the designer Fe Noel. She was being featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network. I was in awe, and when a mutual friend offered to introduce me to her to tell her story. I jumped at the opportunity. In the interview, we spoke about how she got started, some of the obstacles she faced when starting her business as well as some of her biggest wins, such as working with both Oprah and Lebron James.
