Element and Vibe, REV client and one of the vendors for the first virtual Woodlawn Street Market, is expanding its fashion with a message brand even further, with a brand partnership with Essence Magazine.
She initially applied to be a vendor for the renowned Essence Festival in New Orleans but was denied. The magazine reached out pre-COVID-19 and requested samples, according to Element and Vibe owner Aisha Taylor. The partnership bloomed from there.
“Things have been going extremely well,” Taylor said. “Where most people have one to five products on their site, we have 14. I’m super pumped about it. It’s a super exciting time for us right now. ”
