The Cover of Issue No.02 — The Love Issue — is Here!
The cover of The Love Issue is here and the beautiful Deun Ivory and Lauren Ash are our cover girls! After connecting through their work on wellness-focused holistic lifestyle brand Black Girl In Om; the duo recently launched lifestyle brand Lifestyle with Ivory + Ash, featuring collections of illustration- and affirmation-centered goods they envision becoming “the Black Hallmark.” We're so excited to share their unique perspectives on love with our readers.
In the first issue, we introduced CRWN and provided context for the cultural phenomenon that is happening around Black women and our hair. In the second, we delve deeper into one of CRWN’s brand pillars — Self-Love — with a cover story from the perspective of two creative, entrepreneurial powerhouses. Deun and Lauren are the embodiment of sisterhood at work, and have built a mighty community of Black women who are choosing to prioritize health, wellness and self-care. Through Ivory + Ash, they’re inspiring, educating and integrating positive affirmations into our everyday lives, and it’s our duty as a community to get behind them. This is cooperative economics in action!!
