When Nnenna Stella, owner of The Wrap Life—a Brooklyn-based head wrap and handmade goods company—started her business, she probably didn’t imagine she’d land the cover of Vogue. However, serendipity worked its magic when, in January, she spoke her recent blessings into existence.
“January 1st, I decided I wanted to see my work on the cover of a major magazine,” she writes in The Wrap Life’s latest newsletter. “February 9th, I was invited to style wraps for Vogue Arabia. I didn’t believe it was real. Two days later, I was on set.”
Vogue Arabia‘s anniversary issue, titled “Imaan Meets Iman,” features legendary supermodel Iman and runway stunner Imaan Hammam. Stella continues, “I didn’t even specify the magazine but I was certain of two things: the cover would be gorgeous and I knew exactly how I’d feel seeing the cover.”
