Paola Mathe

It’s Women’s History Month! Join us on Thursday, March 19th for our An n’ Pale | Café Conversation Series with Paola Mathé, founder of Fanm Djanm, a collection of headwraps, clothing and accessories.

Paola Mathé is a lifestyle blogger, writer, photographer, business owner, and a strong believer in women’s empowerment.  Her blog Finding Paola is about her life in New York City, personal style and inspiration.  From Petionville, Haiti, Paola moved to New York City more than a decade ago.  Working in various positions including marketing, fashion and modeling, Paola decided to launch her company a year ago.

Fanm Djanm meaning “strong woman” in Creole, encourages people to live BOLDLY and seeks to “empower women from all walks of life to be bold, beautiful and powerful.”  Her websites include video tutorials and a wide variety of headwrap styles.  Paola is also exploring the world of printmaking by creating her own custom fabrics and turning them into pants, dresses and accessories.  Current projects also include Ansanm Nou Se Ayiti (Together we are Haiti), the Jump File Project, and her newest project Book Club Brunch Brunch Series.

A selection of Fanm Djanm wraps will be available for purchase as well as jewelry by
