Ciera Rogers is the visionary founder and CEO of Babes, a groundbreaking fashion brand that celebrates and empowers women of all shapes and sizes. Launched in 2013, Babes was born out of Ciera’s frustration with the lack of stylish, figure-hugging clothing for curvy women. Today, her brand is a beacon of body positivity and inclusivity, offering chic and comfortable designs that have garnered a loyal following, including high-profile celebrities like Kim and Khloe Kardashian.

Under Ciera’s leadership, Babes continues to push the boundaries of fashion, promoting self-love and confidence for women everywhere. Her innovative approach and dedication to her craft have made her a prominent figure in the fashion industry, recognized by media outlets such as Vogue Italia, Galore, and Black Enterprise.
