Ever since she was a baby Acacia has loved fashion and the creative components behind it. She received help and inspiration from her late Uncle Primas Foulks and God-Father, Miguel Mayfield and Cousin Joey Pearsey who were very fashionable and creative individuals. Acacia also studied under a mentor by the name of Mrs. Bukola Olalere (Mrs. Bukki), the owner of African Prints By Bukkis. She helped expand her knowledge in sketching, designing, sewing and even embroidery. Acacia decided after she started to notice the gap in fashion for tweens and teenagers that they needed representation as well. In her words, “There is nothing cute, trendy and fashionable for me to wear. Everything either looks so babyish or in my Mom’s ter to grown.” So, she created her own line….Starr Stylzz which specializes in; “Making YOU feel like a “STARR” with their “STYLZZ”!” which is the company motto.
Acacia loves a lot of things from music, to sewing, to even investing and hanging with her Havapooh~ Kieko Oreo Lindt Thomas I, friends and family.
