As a Jackson State University alumna, BeBe utilized her Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism with her passion for fashion and was able to write for print and online publications including Ebony Magazine, N’Digo Magpaper, TheFashionSpot.com, Sister2Sister Magazine, and Savoymag.com.
In 2013, BeBe decided to take a leap of faith and she created her own wave as an entrepreneur. Her passion stemed from the lack of coverage and opportunities for creatives of color in Chicago. So she set out to provide a platform for emerging and established designers, stylists, models, boutique owners, sneaker/brand influencers, and beauty connoisseurs, thus she created Row A Seat 1. Row A Seat 1 – A fashion conglomerate comprised of blogging, styling, brand development, fashion production, and philanthropy.
Today, BeBe has been named as one of Chicago’s most sought-after fashion stylists, bloggers, and influential natives, where she has been able to showcase her work across print, social media, and television. She is currently signed as a Wardrobe Stylist to Ford Models Chicago – Artists Division and hosts a hands-on styling workshop, “Everybody Wanna Be A Stylist” for aspiring fashion stylists. As an entrepreneur, BeBe has been featured on, but not limited to: InStyle Magazine, Rolling Out Magazine, MADE magazine, Bronzeville Life Magazine, VoyageChicago.com, ABC 7 Windy City Live, WCIU The Jam, and WVON 1690AM Live – “The Talk of Chicago (iHeartRadio).” Also, BeBe’s styling work has been published in some of the most credible fashion publications: British Vogue, Tatler, Vanity Fair, GlamourUK.com, The Coveteur, and Chicago Splash.
