Black Fashion Brand to Know: Fanm Djanm

With a brand name meaning “Strong Woman”, NYC-bred brand Fanm Djanm is an African inspired accessories company that is set on inspiring women all over the world.

Let by its Haitian, stunning owner and lifestyle blogger Paola Mathe, the collection is dedicated to her mother, who Mathe notes a “fanm djanm in every sense of the word”.

Creating bold African printed head wraps in striking colors fit for every Black woman’s complexion and hue, Fanm Djanm is not only a breath of fresh air in the fashion market but a new way for us to confidently acknowledge their power as Black women through our style sense.

Black-owned ride-sharing app ‘Moovn’ Changes The Game

The site leads a band of tutorials for women interested in purchasing the head wraps, but lacking knowledge on how to actually wear them. They literally teach you how to wrap, tie and secure them. And, not only can you purchase fabulous head wraps (starting at around $14); you can also purchase headbands, jewelry, clothes and bags from the online store.

Head on over to, and show us what you picked up for the fall season.
