Because of her cultural roots, Weimans is also interested in exploring the role of women of Africa descent in the current global, and complex culture. With her collection "Source of Power Collection", Weimans gave an image of the eccentricity, political incorrectness and dignity that come to play analyzing the contemporary black woman.
