TEAM TXTURE

Ashira Provost

Born in Gardena, CA and went to school in Long Beach. Raised by a creative; I always remembered waking up to my mother curating songs lyrics, going through notebooks full of clever lyricism and metaphors or being disciplined with a lesson that usually was tied to a metaphor. Instinctively, writing budded at a young age, I started writing poetry when I was 6. By 8, I fell in love with sketching fashion designs and expressing myself through fashion. My passions blossomed to the present moment, I am now a lifestyle writer, fashion writer, wardrobe stylist and a young black conscious woman that’s going to give you a witty perspective on any subject that is thrown at me.

Jasmine Nevins

I love reading historical novels that showcase the hidden histories of Black women and women of color. I enjoy brands that emphasize strong sisterhoods and dazzling multicultural communities. My works encompass historical fiction, romance. Writing and Reading is life!

Lucy Sams

As a person who believes what Maya Angelou said, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you." Lucy Sams tells her stories with a focus on life's pleasures; laughter, sunshine, and new places.

Monifa Coffee

After 13+ years working in entertainment & media as a celebrity makeup artist working for Nickelodeon, VH1, BET & CNN, Monifa revamped her career and created TXTURE Magazine. She noticed a void in positive imagery within the black community, especially the images of Natural Haired Black woman". So, she used her industry resources to publish TXTURE. She leverages her platform with TXTURE (print publication and communications firm) to lead in creative direction for talent, existing established brands and emerging small businesses looking for new ways to connect to a larger audience and gain brand awareness; rather than purchasing traditional advertisement.
