Beautifully Speaking By Sonya Walker

Written By: Staff Writer—Growing fashion label Beautifully Speaking's motto reads: "If you're not speaking beautifully, then you should be beautifully speaking" and founder Sonya Walker believes that wholeheartedly. In her Q&A with MIMI, find out about Sonya's fashion mission.

MIMI: In three words could you describe Beautifully Speaking?
Sonya Walker: Beauty inside out.

MIMI: What inspired you to start Beautifully Speaking?
Sonya Walker: God had given me the idea to start a Women's Ministry called the Essence of A Woman which means to bring out the true nature in which she was created. I was given the opportunity to speak to women teens all over and through these experiences God begin to show me that how you see yourself or have a poor image of yourself this will cause you to live beneath who you were created to be. The bible tells us that as a man thinks in his heart so is he. Words are powerful and that its not about what others say as much as it is about how you feel about yourself that matters most. From there I was asked to write for a magazine and other online forums and I would talk about God, sex, and love. That as women you were created to be loved cherish and adored to stop selling yourself short, that you were not designed to lead men or to take care of them but that you are the prize, and I would sign Beautifully Speaking, Sonya. If you would like to see some of my writings you can go to and click on newsletter and see some of my archived writings.

MIMI: Most people who enter fashion are trying to start a trend, but it seems as though for you, you are trying to send a message. Is that a fair characterization? If so, what are you trying to say?
Sonya Walker: Yes, that is fair to say. I believe that you can be a public success but a private failure that just because you are beautiful outwardly doesn't mean that you feel the same inwardly. So, I want to send the message that when God created you, it is simply because He loves you just the way you are and that you don't have to fit into what society's idea of beauty has to be. To learn to love your height, size, that no matter where you come from God thinks that you are absolutely beautiful and that He has a plan for your life. That the greatest gift you can give yourself is love.

MIMI: Any long-term plans for Beautifully Speaking that you care to share with MIMI?
Sonya Walker: I would love to see Beautifully Speaking on runways, in Wal-Mart as well as boutiques. My desire is that loving yourself becomes contagious. My plans for Beautifully Speaking is to have a full line of baby doll tees and tanks, lounge and sleepwear, bath and body products and a full cosmetic line. My goal is to have events that will teach women how to nurture and love themselves
