Writer Biography - Bileh Kash Gambela

My Name is Bileh Kash Gambela, and I am from the Bronx. I am the Showroom Manager for Fashion Designer Alhassan TOURE.

I’ve spent the last 22 years as a writer, I was signed to Rocafella Records back in 2001, as a writer and artist. In 2007 I began to work with Alhassan as his Show-room Manager, and second in command. We have since done 10 NYFW Shows including Newark New Jersey Fashion shows.
From 2009-2010 I have also honed my literary skills by creating an Ancestry Anthropology DNA Genetic Blog. My DNA Blog has gone on to be the topmost searched blog in the country with over 500,000 visitors internationally. The ten years of research in the genetic field as a hobby has helped me, to help over 100 people decode, and trace their maternal, and paternal ancestral origins. My decade experience in the Fashion Industry has added another layer to my expanded creativity, as well as business relationships thus far. It has also opened the window of the behind-the-scenes events with some of the biggest names in the Music Industry.
What I’m trying to say that I have worked in different fields of the industry and it’s always felt right as a writer or a creator.
