Here’s a little more about Mahalia:
Mahalia Rivera is a native of Rochester, N.Y. She lends her talent, time and service by sharing advice on enhancing natural beauty via digital platforms. Fashion is, of course, just one string on Mahalia’s guitar. She’s a superwoman, working a 9 to 5, while raising two young children and running her digital makeup tutorial channel. One of her keys to success is surrounding herself with like-minded, go-go-getter moms.
In 2018, Mahalia earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion and Textile Technology from Buffalo State College (BSC). While at Buffalo State, she collaborated with student-designers to create a runway fashion show. The show created a diverse and inclusive culture, one that provided students with a safe environment that allowed them to showcase their talent and vision, while offering an applied learning experience that supported students to support future careers in the fashion and textile industry.
To gain more hands-on experience, Mahalia interned at 26 Shirts. In her role as a creator/sales representative, she helped customers to create custom t-shirt designs. After graduating from college, Mahalia returned to her hometown and landed her dream job in fashion at Fashion Week Rochester. As an assistant coordinator, she conceived fashion design plans, coordinating advertising and marketing activities, while attending runway shows to stay current on the latest trends.
In 2020, Ms. Rivera launched her digital channel, “All Things Mahalia,” providing makeup tutorials, which are featured on Black Women Voices (BWV) a digital platform for change-makers and influencers.
