Join the Fashion Movement


Created in May 2012 by Stanford Graduate Vanessa Murphy, Sunflower Band provides daily doses of chic to savvy stylists. Recognizing there were few print and online sources for multicultural fashion, Vanessa took her interests in style and writing to create the number one online destination for global chic seekers with a penchant for all things fabulous.

Readers log on to Sunflower Band for its fresh takes on fashion news and stories, along with its boutique spotlights, exclusive editorials, magazine scans, fashion show reviews, trends, wardrobe advice, celebrity looks for less, and tips on how to break into the industry from the best in the business.

In September 2015, Vanessa moved to Milan, Italy to draw inspiration from the singular beauty unique to the world’s capital of fashion. After spending two years in the city of lights, Vanessa moved back to the Kansas City in 2017 to further pursue her fashionable dreams. Sunflower Band now has several contributors, and seeks to be the #1 global online destination for connoisseurs of contemporary style.
