HOW IT ALL STARTED
Inspired by her parents who were the owners of a jewelry store “Black Creations” it was only natural that Talibah wanted to create beauty for the world to experience. Both of her parents had a background in Education, Fashion, and Entrepreneurship. Her first memories are of sitting in the store in awe of the colors, sizes, and shapes of beads and how her parents combined them into wearable art. That is where she created her first piece of jewelry at the age of 5.
Talibah yearned to be creative and when her grandfather suggested she turn her hobby into a business, she applied for Cosmetology school. This great idea afforded her the opportunity to be creative and eventually teach in what would become one of her strongest genres. Her greatest joy came from the seeing the appreciative glow from her clients once she completed styling them. Concurrently she returned to her first love of designing magnificent handcrafted jewelry, a skill her mom helped to hone.
Still at the mercy of the creative bug, Talibah, through many personal sacrifices, returned to school to further her education. In spite of many challenges she received her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Fashion Design. This provided the necessary tools to start her own company. Because of her passion, dedication, and education, Talibah is a triple threat; She’s an expert at making custom wearable art (jewelry), designing bold, sexy fashions and styling hair in trendsetting styles.
