Nina Baksmaty, founder and Creative director of Koshie O. says," It is such an honor to have Michelle Williams design pieces for Koshie O. She has been an inspiration of mine from her Destiny's Child days up until now and I know the public is going to love what Koshie O. and Michelle Williams will come up with."
