Flexin' in My Complexion Favorite

Kheris Rogers, an 11-year-old entrepreneur from Los Angeles, has made history at New York Fashion Week as the youngest fashion designer ever to present. Kheris became an internet sensation earlier this year after her sister posted photos of her promoting her unapologetic Flexin' in My Complexion apparel line.

Kheris got her start in fashion after she was bullied by her classmates for being "too dark". She says she went home crying, and eventually transferred to another school. But her older sister was determined to boost her pride and confidence, and started taking model style photos of Kheris. When she posted them on social media, the photos instantly went viral with more than 100,000 likes and shares.

This encouraged Kheris to not only be proud of her skin tone, but to also do something about it. So, she decided to start an apparel line called Flexin' in My Complexion.

She created the line to not only encourage herself but to boost the self-esteem of other dark skin girls. Through her entrepreneurial spirit she simultaneously founded a movement among darker skinned Black youth to own their OWN BEAUTY and be unapologetically proud of it.
