In today's day and age, to be unswervingly yourself almost sounds like an oxymoron. You take one good look around, and you truly develop an appreciation of seeing the ascendance of a woman living in her true essence. Not to mention one that has the capabilities of becoming a mogul in her own right.

Meet Lava La Rue, a rising multifaceted star in the making. Up to this point, Lava is mostly known for her budding music career and being a founder of the NiNE8 collective. Her prominence is steadily rising, and for a relatively new journey, it's quite impressive. In a short time, she was seen performing for Mulberry England during London's Fashion Week, working on new music all while uplifting everyone around her. Her inclusion in fashion is no surprise since her style is a complex confluence of 90's grudge and futuristic (think "The Matrix"). In 2018, Lava was enlisted by the British Fashion Council to create a menswear runway collection all while releasing her debut EP "Letra."

 

Ava Laurel, Lava's real name has been in and out of foster care until the legal age of 18 and has been climbing out of obscurity ever since. According to an interview done with Dazed Digital, she started to make music at 16 initially being in a band. During her time in college, Lava met members of her soul tribe which lead to the collective NiNE8 which is a squad filled with musicians, designers, and other talented individuals. Being able to use her creative space as a catharsis has guided Lava on a path to success. Recently featured on Redbull's "9 UK Acts to watch for in the year ahead", the year is already off to a good start. Teasing new music on Instagram added on with cryptic posts allowing followers to know that she's working on something big, I'm sure she has a few tricks that she can't wait to show the world. Her free-spirited yet girl boss persona is everything. Her individuality will make her a force to be reckoned with years to come!
