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.
