Trench Closet: @Semira Brown

“I am a dancer, singer, writer, visual artist and Ivy-League student. I hail from the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia), a place where we would visit the monuments and museums you see on postcards for a weekend hangouts.” ~ Semira Brown

Favorite Brand?

Not super into brands, but I’m going to say Nike because I’m a bit of a sneakerhead.

The place of fashion in Semira’s life:

As an artist, fashion serves as an outlet for me to exercise my creativity and assert my identity in a quotidian manner. Clothes bear so much cultural significance, and I find it so beautiful that a seemingly mundane act such as choosing what to wear can transcend even the artistic realm and occupy a political space. In dance in particular, choosing an more streetwear muscle allows me to accentuate my movements with striking and subversive clothes that embody my confidence, like dope sneakers.

My signature piece(s) would be my jacket(s)! I always snag one-of-a-kind pieces at the thrift store that I get so many compliments on! My current favorite is my camo bomber jacket.

Semira’s signature piece

We asked Semira, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”


“And would you actually do it?”


And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.

Semira told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.

Sustainability manifest in a monumental manner in my approach to style through my love for thrifted pieces. Thrifting has proven to be such a great way to acquire pieces with character and quality while undermining the environmentally-deleterious effects of the fast fashion industry.
