We first met Roodelynn Jean Baptiste Sylvian via Instagram in 2015, as she shared her fun and bright sock business called "RSock": instantly we fell in love. In January 2016, we had the opportunity to meet in person during her powerful brunch that she organized to gather and empower her female friends. Her sweet presence, incredible style and artful wisdom was very inspiring and we've become huge fans since then. We couldn't be more happy to share her story and her work with you.
