A Night to Remember | Diotima World

What an incredible night celebrating Jamaican culture with Diotima and Sweet July Skin. Thank you all for coming out in your beautiful Diotima and McMullen favorites to welcome Rachel to Oakland. Our hearts are so full and happy from all the love. 

"So many beautiful faces wearing so many Diotima looks, I feel like it’s a Diotima fashion show,” Sherri McMullen told the crowd of 50 or so guests of leading women that she co-hosted with Ayesha Curry and Sweet July Skin to honor Rachel Scott of Diotima and celebrate her Jamaican heritage and her inspiring journey. What a beautiful night to bask in Caribbean culture during Women’s History Month.

“Celebrating designers, female designers, designers of color is really important to me, and being able to bring them to our hometown of Oakland is such a great experience for our community and for the designers to see who is wearing their pieces,” said Sherri founder of McMullen, who hosted a trunk show and personal appearance for Scott at her store last Thursday and an intimate dinner on Friday. “Rachel truly celebrates the female spirit in her pieces. You feel that when you’re wearing them — and the essence of the Caribbean. To know these pieces are being handwoven by women in Jamaica feels so special to me" said Sherri McMullen.

“I want to touch on, as someone in fashion, just how special Sherri is. It’s a big world and she’s a very big player and there is no one like you. The way Sherri supports independent, emerging brands is unlike any other; she doesn’t take it on consignment, she buys it. When she invests, she invests and if it wasn’t for her investment in me, I wouldn’t be here today.” said Rachel Scott designer of Diotima

“I feel so proud every time someone says your name,” says Curry founder of Sweet July Skin to the designer, who like her is of Jamaican descent.

“Sherri, thank you for introducing me to Rachel. You are always at the helm of what is going to be great. It’s always been that way, and I’ve known you over a decade. I remember stumbling into your store in its first location, and seeing designers I had never heard of before that were so fresh, and artistic and creative and always had meaning behind what they were doing,” said Ayesha Curry, who wore Diotima to the CFDA Awards in November. “I felt so special and to watch you make history and win that night…the room was elated. This is just the beginning of something that is going to be so magical and I can’t wait to watch it.”

Special thanks to our community of amazing women and partners.
