Meet the Founder Who Went From a Fashion Blogger to Beauty Entrepreneur


In 2008, CeCe launched her blog about fashion, fitness, dating, and living in New York City from a curvy girl’s perspective. When speaking about her journey, CeCe states, “From the beginning, I’ve had a community of passionate and insightful women who have come along with me on my journey.” With her ever-growing following, CeCe’s passion led her to work with industry leaders including NIKE, LOFT, Bloomingdales, Olay, Secret Deodorant, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Amazon, and so many more.


Named one of the “Top 10 New York Fashion Bloggers” by WhoWhatWear and a “person who proves you can be fit at any size” by MTV.com, CeCe Olisa is co-Founder of theCURVYcon, a convention celebrating body positivity and plus size fashion during New York Fashion Week.


For her next chapter, CeCe switches lanes from fashion influencer to beauty entrepreneur, partnering with Black Progress Matters to launch her brand Cocoa By CeCe. CeCe’s mantra to build confidence and empower women to feel beautiful is instilled in the DNA of Cocoa By CeCe.


Cocoa by CeCe will be launching in March 2022.
