We've had such a great response on our first feature for the month of January, we decided to add another feature on a very creative and humble SisStar. Sheeba Chastang is the creative designer and owner of Urban Vibe Chic, which was started back in 2007.
I was looking for a fellow yarn and needle diva to connect with and was introduced to Sheeba a couple of years ago. Sheeba and I share a love for the art of crochet and a love for seeing unity with other women. The first time I spoke to Sheeba she greeted me as “SiS” and I have adored her ever since.
Now let’s get to know Sheeba Chastang and Urban Vibe Chic.
SiS: Who would be your ideal celebrity to create something for? What would it be and why? Sheeba Chastang: I would love to design and create something for R&B singer, Brandy Norwood. I think I would create jewelry and accessories for her…like a hat and scarf set. I have loved Brandy and her music since I was 13 years old. The reason I would create jewelry and a hat and scarf set is because, Brandy is really down to earth, chic and has a very unique style. When she is not working, her style is really easy going. She’s just amazing and I look up to her.
SiS: What is stylish to you?
Sheeba Chastang: I like any style that is easy to make your own. One of the reasons I created Urban Vibe Chic was to have the freedom to create my own style and put a twist on classic fashion pieces.
SiS: Name one thing you CAN'T live without and why?
Sheeba Chastang: I cannot live without the different types of yarn and colors.
SiS: What is the best advice you could give to another SiS wanting to pursue her passion?
Sheeba Chastang: Always believe in your work and create what you love. There will be people who don’t like what you are doing and will think you are wasting your time. They will tell you to give up and do something else. Some people will try to down play your work to back themselves look better. However, know that no matter what…never give up on the gift that God has blessed you with. There is someone out there that will love what you do, as much as you do. There maybe someone out there looking up to you and your hard work.
You are amazing, fabulous, and creative…down right stylish!!! Thank you so much for your willingness to be the feature SisStar on Sisters in Style Blog.
