When we last spoke to Jamia Fields in September, 2020, she was in the midst of her season with the Houston Dash, and we primarily chatted about her life-long love of fashion. Frequently recognized for her dope fits (which she regularly showcases on social media), Fields made it clear that she was determined to make big waves in the fashion industry and hinted that she was working on an upcoming fashion line. Fast forward seven months later, that line has finally come to fruition, officially launching online today. Named Stoic Los Angeles (which is a testimony to anybody who has had to power through tough times and situations), Stoic L.A. is a luxury streetwear brand that is ‘street but sweet.’
Working on Stoic primarily by herself, Fields has been completely hands-on in all the elements of her company, pulling from her experiences in fashion, life, and sports to create a brand that encompasses what it truly means to be a warrior. Ahead of its release, Fields spoke with ONE37pm’s Jael Rucker to give a full background on how Stoic Los Angeles came to be and what the line means to her.
