Richie Clark Clothing
Clothing designer, Shamirra Clark, says,
“the name, Richie Clark, is a take on my grandmother’s name. She bought my first sewing machine for me when I was 16 and helped start an incredible journey. The values that were instilled in me by the women that raised me still guide me to this day and have helped me hold the vision for this brand. They empowered me to believe in myself, love myself, and define myself for myself.”
