Nominees for Best Store/Boutique
ChiChi - ChiChi was established in May of 2020 by sisters, Angel and Sanika Howell from Cincinnati, Ohio. Chichi rooted from a lifelong interest and passion for art and fashion. In 2009 Angel attended the Art Institute of Ohio-Cincinnati and obtained a degree in Fashion Merchandising and went on to pursue a career in Fashion Merchandising with a few well-known retailers. At the age of 12, Sanika discovered her gift of cosmetology and went on to become a talented hairstylist with a wide range of clientele.After years of working in the hair and fashion industry we decided that it was time for us to merge both of our personal styles and love for fashion to create a place for fashion risk-takers to shop.
ROKY KING-SESAY - My name is Roky King Sesay, and I'm originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone. I now live in Columbus, Ohio. I started selling handmade Ankara clothing back in 2019. As a result of delivery issues in getting my products from Africa during the pandemic, I then started designing my products myself. I love making people smile and feel special! So, it brings me great joy and happiness to do that through my design.
