Baltimorean identical twins Cipriana and TK Quann were enamored with their former punk-rocker mother’s walk-in closet at five years old, and grew up borrowing each others’ clothes, obsessed with customizing and altering pieces to fit their distinctive looks…Since then, they branched out into editorials on fashion, lifestyle, and the black experience in a predominantly white industry and have been featured in Vogue, Glamour, and Essence, teaching women to embrace their natural hair and style.
Elle Brasil September Issue: The Quann Sisters
We are ecstatic to share our 10 page editorial and interview for the “Be Cool, Be Strong, Be Real, Be Yourself” September issue of Elle Brasil with cover star Alicia Keys.
We sat down with Elle Journalist, Luara CalviAnic and discussed natural hair, why positive support amongst women is so important, the power of diversity within the industry, why we felt the need to advocate more non-stereotypical relatable representation for women of color in mainstream media, what self love means, defining beauty and much more. To read the full interview and view more images, Elle Brasil is available now.
Thank you to Elle Brasil, we are deeply flattered to be a part of this incredible issue and share our story. -Cipriana Quann & TK Quann
