KENYA FREEMAN is the CEO and Senior Lead Designer of Sylvia Mollie Collections – an American lifestyle brand that embodies bold femininity with transitional ready-to-wear pieces, and effortless makeup.
Inspired by two bold women in her life, Sylvia (mother) and Mollie (grandmother), Kenya set out to create classic garments that instill power and confidence to fearless women making an impact in the world.
Born in Norfolk, VA, Kenya had love for designing and sewing at an early age, which naturally guided her to study Fashion Design at American Intercontinental University in Atlanta, Georgia. After years of blood, sweat, and tears (and faith), Kenya earned her first big break in 2013, where she showed a collection at WWD Magic in Las Vegas.
In 2016 she won the Emerging Artist Award from the city of Atlanta, and was a top designer and finalist on Season 16 of Project Runway. This is only the beginning for Kenya Freeman and the Sylvia Mollie brand, with the launch of her latest collection, spring plus-size collection, and nonprofit.
