Episode 16: So Real with Medgine Williams

Listen HERE

I am so excited to be bringing you this guest on the series, Medgine Williams. Medgine is an entrepreneur and fashion stylist who helps people find outfits and styles that speak to them and their personal tastes.


In this episode, we talk about how she got into the fashion industry and the role that our wardrobe has in how people view us and how we view ourselves. We also talk about how the appropriation of cultures comes to play when it comes to this topic of personal style.
