Kiecha Lacey – Fashion Consultant /CEO Chicago IL.
Ambitious and driven, Kiecha (pronounced Key’sha) is a fashion model and consultant known for her classy and elegant style. Having been in the industry since she was thirteen, Kiecha had a keen eye for aesthetics from a very young age thanks to her mother and godmother. Her mother’s conservative yet formal sense of style that often featured stockings and long sleeves was the source of sophistication Kiecha now portrays. Her godmother, on the other hand, allowed Kiecha to showcase her vestiary creativity by designing her Easter outfits.
Bursting with potential and a natural talent for fashion, Kiecha began modeling for esteemed designers such as Chez De Alexander, Ganier Designs, Faira Signature Designs, Wanda Cobar, ES Designs, Micheal Josephs, YahMyel Atelier Designs, and many others.
With her innate sense of style and industry knowledge, she graced the runway for various brands including Luster Products, Soft Sheen, Proud Lady, Bonner Brothers, Namaste Hair Products, Motions Hair Products, and United Colors of Benetton. With burgeoning talent and growing success as a model led to Kiecha featuring the pages of magazines such as Black Elegance, Suburban Black Style, Today’s Black Woman, and ABI Fashions.
While she continues to work as a print model for fashion retailers such as Macy’s, Sears, and Carson Pirie Scott, consulting and collaborating with emerging designers are areas she excels in. Her dedication to her profession has not gone unnoticed. Recently, she was featured in POWER magazine and received the Professional Organization of Women of Excellence Recognition award for 2021.
