Designer Spot Light.....Cecil Hayes

Today's spot light will be shined on a woman who has paved the way for African American Interior Designers. Cecil Hayes is a designer to the stars. Her history in interior design has opened so many doors for African American Interior Designers, she was the first African American to grace the pages of Architectural Digest. She has also been named in their top 100 list of Interior Designers in the world three different times. In 2002 Cecil launched her own furniture line Mikala Inc, which she created and manufactured herself becoming the first African American to achieve such a goal. She has so many achievements and awards I can go on for days here. An induction into the Smithsonian Institute Design museum, inducted into the History Makers Archives, an NAACP Hall of Fame recipient. Need I say more. Cecil Hayes is deserving of our love and praise for working so hard to build her brand and allowing the world to shine light on African American Interior Designers.
