Anne Lexee a fashion model, creative artist and owner of Durags Cell
A spiritual kiddo from the Caribbean, born in Paris 28 years ago. I am very dissipated but I always arrived where I supposed to be. Living around the world, mostly in Paris, I went through different studies: international trade, communication and finally fashion. In fashion I find my balance through the creative process. I moved to New York 6 months for my masters degree. I learned a lot about myself and this experience totally changed my mindset regarding my future – I was ready to do me for me. But I finally understand that what was really driving me was art, especially visual art. I get bored really quickly and I’m always looking for something new to discover as I’m a very curious person. Today, my creative hyperactivity translates itself in different ways: I’m proud to be the SheEO of Duragcell, a brand who specializes in handmade unique Durags based in Paris, I am a artist and model. I am really into mixed medium; collage, photo, video, painting, digital arts, clay creations. This year I starting handpoke tattoos as a way to share my creations with people – This is the birth of indigo plantain. Indigo plantain is the vessel where everything merges together and I use the social medias as a way to display all of these creations, mainly Instagram, Youtube for my videos, and my coming website to get my creations. Videos are a big part because it’s the best way to express what and how I really feel inside and how I see the world right now. By my creations but also through my looks, make-up and hairstyles, I recreate myself every single day.
