Launched in January 2016, The Road to Hannah presents an eclectic collection of stylistic musings, curated by Founder and Editor-In-Chief, Hannah Anisa. What started out as a platform to share daily outfits and inspirations has morphed into a more conscious, creative platform, showing social consciousness in a style-oriented manner.
Although The Road to Hannah is inclusive of all denominations, its core audience remains the intelligent and grounded woman. One who spends her weekdays climbing the corporate ladder, and her weekends crowdsurfing to her favorite band. The woman who is not afraid to dye her hair, or rock menswear, or ask her boss for equal pay. For progressive women that seek inspiration from the latest fashion trends, or refuge from the media-driven beauty standards that cater to only a few, The Road to Hannah provides a safe and welcoming place for ideas to be shared and conversations to be started.
A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR:
I was born and raised into a fashion-oriented family. While the typical American family spent their days talking about sports, my family spent their weekends discussing the latest fashion trends. I guess it was only given that, at a young age, I knew I wanted to be in the fashion industry. But with an industry so vast, I never knew what to do. Or rather, what I could do.
Then in 2011, Instagram was born, and soon after, I was introduced to my first style blogger. I couldn't believe that women were making a living by taking photos of their outfits and writing a bit about them. I'd been a compulsive writer since I was in middle school, and the combination of that along with fashion seemed like a match made in heaven. It was then that I decided that one day, I would be a blogger.
I wanted to start right then and there, but I wasn't even in high school, and knew that I had a lot of growing up to do if I wanted to run a professional blog. And in the years between that first inkling of an idea, to the day I actually launched my site, I did a lot of growing up. I'm not done growing, and I probably won't be for a while, but I'm so excited to now be in a place where I can document this journey with all of you.
Over the years, one thing I've really learned is that my style doesn't fit in a box. Some days I'm all for the girly glam, others I'm rocker chic, and other days I'm all about 70's vintage-inspired threads. It doesn't fit in a box. In fact, if you were to peek in my closet, you'd find a bunch of pieces that don't really make sense, yet somehow, they work. It's only fitting, considering I've never quite fit in a box myself, either. As a once-aspiring-ballerina-turned-YA-author-and-blogger, you could say I'm a bit all over the place with my lifelong passions. As a result, I've dubbed myself a "creative creature", running from art project to art project, city to city, from the desert to the forest and back again, drawing inspiration from everywhere I can.
When people ask me what "The Road to Hannah" is, that's exactly what I say. It's the digital narrative of a creative creature. My home, my outlet, and the one thing that gets me saying every morning, "okay, where to next?".
