Let's take it all the way back, back to a time when a young girl named
Naa-Adei Laura Marmon (pronounced Na-day) who never fit in anywhere, found her solace amongst her mother's clothing and makeup. She loved to play dress up, and relished in the power she felt when in her mother's clothes.
Her mother saw in her an affinity towards fashion and decided to teach her how to sew, little dresses for her dolls.
However, it wasn't until middle school, when an art teacher randomly gave Naa-Adei a fashion croquis to make designs on, did things begin to come together. Once NLM created her first design her path was forever changed; she had just found her passion. Which filled the bright-eyed teen with excitement as the endorphins coursed through her veins; this was the creative outlet she needed. This is when she became a fashion designer but had no way of knowing where the road would lead.
Today Naa-Adei Laura Marmon pays respect to her Jamaican and Ghanian heritage, which is heavily reflected in her work. She puts forth grace, class, and fierceness to the fashion world, one garment at a time.
