She may be only 20-years-old, but age has not stopped Michigan State University junior Onylah Taggart from opening her own clothing boutique near the East Lansing campus.
Taggart, who is raising a 2-year-old child along with handling her advertising management studies, decided to open DBN Boutique earlier this month because it was hard for Black students to find clothing nearby by Black clothing makers or in styles that they prefer. and designers. DBN stands for Dazzle By Ny, the name of an old upstart of hers.
“We need more clothing stores,” Taggart told the Lansing State Journal. “We shouldn’t have to sit (at home) right there and order things online and cross our fingers to make sure it comes in time.”
