It all began with my visit to Mart 1-2-5 -- the iconic and long shuttered vendor’s market located on West 125th Street in Harlem, New York. Afterwards, I was at once energized and inspired by the entrepreneurs and product displays I encountered, especially the Afrocentric T-shirts. Within two weeks, fueled by the passion of a first-time entrepreneur, First Word Art T-shirt design was born. Sales immediately took off, and I eventually left my once promising career on Wall Street and became a full time T-shirt designer. Under Wraps was launched after a successful run designing T-shirts, with the introduction of a line of Wrap skirts featuring a few hand-printed images from my T-shirt collection. The rest as they say is history.
