Hello,

My name is Tabitha Santiago and I am one of the owners of Notorious Finesse, a clothing brand that has been created to cater to men, women, and children. Notorious Finesse is an urban style brand that was made to provide stylish attire at an affordable price.

Notorious Finesse began as a mere dream. It was a glimmer of hope that Karina, co-owner of Notorious Finesse, and I had in a moment of darkness. At the young ages of 23 and 20, Karina and I realized that it was not worth dreaming if we weren't willing to fight for it. 

Karina grew up in a single parent home, with 2 younger siblings and her great-grandmother. Growing up was a place filled with anxiety and fear of becoming homeless or facing starvation. Having to depend on government assistance or having to watch her mother wait around for a paycheck that often times was not enough to afford basic necessities, Karina vowed to rise above her struggle and create a name for herself and a brighter future for her loved ones as well.

On the other hand, I was provided with a more stable but still struggle some upbringing. Though resources were not scarce, there were limitations. At a young age, I learned that nothing in life would be handed to me on a silver platter and that I would have to work very hard for my dreams. Being the youngest of my siblings, I always had big shoes to fill but never forgot my dream of being in the fashion industry and being able to provide an affordable brand for those around me. 

After much prayer to God and much hard work, Karina and I felt that we began to understand what our purpose in life was. We have been destined to do for others what we wished someone would have done for us. We created Notorious Finesse as a representation of a common struggle that many share including us. 

Karina and I are strong, proud Afro-Latina women who are determined to rise above our adversities with our community and lead by examples of what can happen when you take a dream and combine it with perseverance, determination, faith, and hard work to make it a great reality.
