Owner, Christian Omeshun
Christian Omeshun was founded by Atlanta based designer A’Shontay Hubbard. She attended Bauder College and received degrees in both Fashion Design and Business Product Development. While in school, A’Shontay was a stand out amongst her peers, staying true to her artistic vision.
A’Shontay chose to pursue fashion design when she noticed a lack of modern, sophisticated options for plus sized women - particularly if they were tall. The options found in stores were often cookie cutter, generic, and had an unflattering fit and length. As a plus size woman with a flare for fashion, A’Shontay found this simply unacceptable and set out to create a custom clothing line for the woman who wanted more.

Owner, Hello Purpose
Nothing sparks a fire in Shawana Vickers than hearing a woman say “I am worthy, I am purposeful, and I am beautiful.”
With an expertise in female motivation and over 10 years of freelance beauty experience at the helm of her dedication, Shawana’s discovery for helping women was initiated during her own road map of transition. Motivated by her own life experiences, Shawana helps women to successfully navigate the crossroads that they will inevitably face and find the beauty, complexity, and awesomeness in speaking their truth. Her mission has evolved into empowerment and inspiration, as she encourages, motivates, and challenges others through her signature empowerment blog & brand, “Hello Purpose”.
Affectionately known as “The Purpose Pusher”, Shawana’s blog tastefully examines women’s issues that most would consider too personal or embarrassing to talk about. As a plus size, non-traditional Christian, Shawana understands the confidence, inclusion and ambition challenges that women can face in their lives, therefore she is exploring the idea of mentoring and development programs, all designed to offer valuable encouragement to women and teens.
Shawana’s work seamlessly integrates the relationship between art and life through the intricate, transformative stories that she communicates weekly on her “Makeup & Ministry”. Her impact is illustrated perfectly in Sarah Jakes Roberts’ quote “Despite the many tears that threatened to dilute it, your faith did not dissolve. Your heart is still pumping. Your pulse is a sign that this world needs you.”
