Designer Spotlight: Purple Pill Babies Inc.

It was like yesterday that I was walking down U Street and an outfit caught my eye. She had these amazing earrings and pants on that were just super creative. Come to find out, she was actually from NY making these pieces herself.

Here is her bio:::

Born 9/27/85 on Hurricane Gloria, NY should have known some kind of Black rose would grow from the concrete jungle. Brooklyn native, Tasiya Sealey is one of the most anticipated emerging designers in NYC. Catching the eye of a many admirers, Purple Pill Babies (her company) landed a feature in Ebony Magazine within it’s second year of business as well as reality show offers. Much bigger than aesthetics, Tasiya’s only motivation via fashion is to flash the message…something’s out there!  However, her one of a kind eyewear, accessories and African inspired garments are nothing to breeze by.  

Earning a degree in Business Management then Fashion Design & Merchandising, soon after creating her brand and living the life of a Spiritual Black Nationalist Activist; the world can only wonder what Tasiya can not do but be prepared to witness her gracefully do it anyway. Her work can be found at
