[Iamthenublack] Desiree Marshall of clothing brand Afrodelik

[Iamthenublack] Desiree Marshall of clothing brand Afrodelik



Introduce yourself

My name is Desiree Marshall and I am the creator and founder of clothing brand Afrodelik. Based in Canada, we celebrate black culture by producing rich, funky, hand-drawn afrocentric art collections for clothing. The brand embraces the strong energy of African spirit and our heroes and sheroes of today and yesteryears. I am also a professional video editor.


Favourite song lyric

I am a huge Meshell Ndegeocello fan and I just chose 1 of many of my favourite lyrics by her. This is from the song Bittersweet:

“you enchant me so my bittersweet flower shall we make love feel the waves of the ocean come to rest in the eye of a storm.”


I’m inspired by

Confidence in one-self, Courageousness, Creativity, Music, Love, Laughter, Spirituality, Sunshine, Beautiful Flowers, Funky Dancers, Sexiness


My icons past/present

There are many, but to name a few:
My mom, Buddha, Gandhi, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr, all people who were part of the civil rights movement,  Freedom Riders, Oprah Winfrey and more…


Thenublack philosophy

This is something that I am working through it myself, and it is:

“Be all of you, this is the only life that you know of. Live it to the fullest, without fear and inhibition. LIVE BIG!”
