Coriama Couture is a triple threat—or should I say a triple A? The artist, aesthetician, and activist is writing and hosting a soon-to-debut webseries about nonconforming identities and queerness in Chicago, and helming the monthly discussion series and podcast Sex KiKi, which she created to celebrate liberated femininity. And she has designs to open a shop inspired by gender and sexual fluidity. When it comes to shaping her style, which is informed by the local "Afro-surrealistic" collective Zo//Ra Multiverse, Couture draws upon what she calls "the ABCS"—art, beauty, culture, and sexuality. Keep up with her many projects at coriamacouture.com.
