Haitians in America: Boutique owner brings style and flair to West Hempstead

By Bianca Silva

When Sagine Pierre realized she possessed a flair for fashion after noticing people would compliment on her outfits, she decided to do something with her talent.

Folks would literally want to take my outfits off of me,” she says.

After spending 11 years working at Lord & Taylor, Pierre launched an online store in 2016 and in April 2017, opened the Sage and Angie boutique in West Hempstead, Long Island. The name was in homage to her two daughters Sage and Angie. In that time since opening her business, Pierre got the opportunity to design the dress of Miss Universe Haiti Cassandra Chéry for the 2017 edition of Miss Universe.

Pierre speaks with The Haitian Times on the work she’s done since the launch of her boutique.
