Undra Celeste

About

Hi I'm Undra - the founder and creative director of Undra Celeste New York. This brand has grown and become my true labor of love. I started designing as early as 10-years old in Brooklyn. I've always looked at the world through design, color, shape - more abstract. Growing up I didn't know I could get paid to draw and sew and make pretty things, so I took the advice of my good West Indian parents and went to school for business as the illustrious Howard University. HU was a transformative experience. After college I moved to LA to work in "business", I didn't like anything about my life in LA (sorry West Coast peeps) until I enrolled in a fashion illustration class at Long Beach College. That 2 hour class every Tuesday night became my life. It felt like home in a far away land. A year later I quit my job, sold everything in my apartment and moved back home to NYC. 

My desire to be a fashion entrepreneur wouldn't go away, it was a part of me. So in 2015, probably against better judgment, I founded UCNY. This brand is my growing baby and has exceeded most of my plans for it. It was profitable in its first year. Landed 6 retailers in that same year and continues to grow as I continue to stretch myself and what is possible for me as it's owner and creative director.
