Katiti Kironde was the first black woman to be on the cover of a fashion magazine (Glamour Magazine). The issue broke sales records when it was published in 1961 and featured three outfits that Katiti had designed and made herself. Katiti has over twenty years of experience in the fashion industry, and recently taught Harvard University’s pioneering seminar on the history of fashion in spring of 2010. Katiti also organized an exclusive fashion panel for Harvard Business School with special guest, Cindi Leive (The Editor in Chief of Glamour Magazine). Currently, Katiti is an owner and creative director for her own company, which features her signature high-end white shirts and blouses. Katiti has been a valuable asset to Mélange by providing introductions for strategic partnerships and fashion coaching.
