New Orleans local, Quinashai Chelette has been exploring her culture through different materials and mediums. Self-taught, Q. Chelette began designing 2nd line umbrella as a therapeutic hobby.

Chelette founded Quinashai Chelette the brand and decided to create a 2nd line umbrella fashion house as runway 3D art. A week later, she debuted at the Sampson’s Spring Fashion runway show in Brooklyn, New York. Creating one-of-a-kind, signature 2nd line umbrellas while highlighting her culture as her fundamental concept; Q. Chelette aims to give 2nd line umbrellas more of a presence in the fashion world.
