Portrait – Shamar Cousins

Portrait – Shamar Cousins

Since the beginning of our adventure, we’ve had the opportunity to build such great relationships, and we’d like to share some of these with you. We’d like you to meet Shamar, one of the models who took part in our launch campaign and is now part of our Wide family.

Explain to us what you do for a living.

I'm an Administrative Specialist!

Describe a typical day in the life of Shamar.

My best days are when I start off with a cup of coffee. In terms of administration work, I start off with reading emails and catching up on what was missed the day before and connecting with my team, afterwards we get the ball rolling! On my personal days, I love taking time to write short poems and listening to music. As a ritual, I always try to end my day with a walk by the canal to clear my mind. 

Could you share a project that you’re really inspired by, that you would have liked to stamp?

In all honesty, I'm really inspired by Wide the Brand. They confidently branched out of the norm with plus size men at the forefront. Oftentimes, we're always the afterthought. It feels amazing to be a part of the blueprint.

What is your go-to instagram page?

@majimb.o is absolutely hilarious. 

If you could, where would you live for a year? 

Easy, Tokyo! I'd love to see the cherry blossom season with my own eyes.

If you could have a drink with someone that you look up to, who would that person be?

No other than Niecy Nash. She's incredibly wholesome and a brilliant actor. I feel like we would have the best brunch together.

What’s a book that made you reflect recently?

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. It's a really great read and breaks down concepts effortlessly.

Which of the Wide pieces would you wear if you had to wear a piece 2 days in a row?

The Jumpsuit! I love how versatile it is.
