“Our one year anniversary marks a major milestone,” says Anika Hobbs, Owner and Head Curator of Nubian Hueman Boutique. “It’s one thing to have an idea, but once it’s alive, the experience is quite unreal. Our customers and supporters [Kings and Queens] have been angels of reinforcement. They share their time, life experiences, insecurities, and successes, and we want to celebrate them. This event is about highlighting their support through this journey by showing our appreciation.”
Featured in the Washington Express, CBS News local, Washington Informer, and WUSA9, Nubian Hueman Boutique’s assortment includes ethnic fashion apparel, accessories, and beauty brands, along with art of all mediums from the African continent and countries such as the UK, Germany, and US. The boutique’s myriads of talented designers bring ethnic influences to modern silhouettes and product lines by using traditional patterns, fabrics, or ingredients. The Boutique Lounge serves as a means to promote collective interaction, community development, and global responsibility through a fresh and artistic platform. In that,“we pride ourselves in supporting a global community of artists, entrepreneurs, and the creative economy, rather than functioning as merely a fashion retailer” says Anika.
Nubian Hueman (nubianhueman.com) not only believes in its mission to influence physical appearance, but also its ability to improve the quality of lives within its community. It is only fitting that flowers from this one year anniversary event will be donated to Petal Share, a nonprofit that collects and delivers floral arrangements to DC residents in nursing homes, shelters, and hospitals. Moreover, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to KIVA, a nonprofit that connects people through lending to alleviate poverty and a special t-shirt line created in collaboration with Hello Tractor, a Washington DC based agricultural input provider for sub-Saharan small farmers to increase crop yield and combat against income and food insecurity in Africa.
$10 early-bird tickets, as well as volunteer and sponsorship opportunities are available on Eventbrite.
