Tahlia Gray, founder of Sheer Chemistry chats with Qweens about why redefining what nude means to include the diverse shades of women of colour is important and how she hopes that Sheer Chemistry will show the world that nude is not synonymous with beige, and all women should feel beautiful, especially in their tights.
We celebrate Nia Sadé Akinyemi as Qween of the Week for the work she does in helping writers become independent business owners, or authorpreneurs, sparking a literary revolution by founding her own publishing company and literary institute.
Dare Oni, the self-taught head chef of her family restaurant Onidodo, opened the restaurant with her husband, to create a unique experience for Nigerians and Non-Nigerians in the London metropolitan area. Oni’s take on traditional meets London is what makes her restaurant stand out from other traditional Nigerian restaurants. Our Qween of the Week is changing the face of Nigerian cuisine in London, one dish at a time.
