Episode 10: Creative Dreams bigger than Humble Origins with Shantia Seymour

August 21, 2020

Shantia Seymour is a Bermuda born, London based fashion editor and stylist. Throughout high school she tried to figure out how to morph together her love for literature and fashion which bloomed into becoming a fashion writer. She interned for many locals who taught her different aspects of the industry to see where she fit in best - from purse making, fashion writing, garment sewing and editorial styling. After graduating with a degree in Journalism & Fashion Styling she stayed in London to pursue her dreams. For a moment she dipped into the world of textiles and created a line called House of Aiyanna that embodied vintage Bermuda. From a small island girl to now having features in Essence & Man Repeller she urges everyone to follow their dreams because your origin is never too small and dreams are never too big.
