Michiel Perry is the founder of Black Southern Belle and the curated network of diverse brands Black Southern Belle Collective. Prior to her blog, Michiel worked as a brand strategist and event planner for Google, Inc in Washington, D.C. and a collegiate marketing ambassador at Lillybee. In 2014, she was inspired to develop this lifestyle brand highlighting African Americans, Southern tastemakers, and all things “Southern Bred and Soul Infused”, while planning her Charleston wedding and decorating her first home. She desired to build a community to inspire, experience, share a love for the South.
Michiel enjoys life in her historic home in Walterboro, S.C. with her husband and son. When she is not exploring the South, creating inspired entertaining experiences, or working with brands, you can find her adding to her antique collections and sharing her love for the low country.
