Here is a picture of the Haitian fashion designer Paola Mathe who has created the website Fanm Djanm. For relatively a short period of time, she has been gaining fame with her fashionable, statement-making headwraps.
Haitian designer Paola Mathe wants to empower women and named her business Fanm Djanm, i.e. Strong Woman. She is doing so well after a year in business she is now designing jewelry and clothes.
