I met Samantha Rei several years ago when I attended a fantastically fun show she put on at Hell’s Kitchen with an amazing live band and endless stellar looks. Her steampunk-influenced line was called Blashphemina’s Closet back then, but she’s moving forward with an eponymous line and the descriptor, “Beauty. Strength. Rebellion.” Her bio closes with the line, “Samantha strives to help women feel confident, strong and comfortable in their own skin. She believes they can all be beautiful warriors.” Can you see why I adore her?
