When did you realize that your journey in life was leading you to fashion? We have always designed for ourselves and family members, but we decided to turn it into a business 2 years ago.
As you have pursued your vision and your goals how have you stayed motivated and kept your eye on the prize? We keep ourselves very busy and stay motivated by continually learning how to run an apparel business successfully. Our ultimate goal, which is to be carried in boutiques across the country keeps us focused.
Fashion is able to do different things for different people. When someone wears one of your pieces or designs what do you hope they feel? We hope they feel confident and strong. Our garments are meant to make women feel that they are making a positive statement as they go through their daily life.
What advice would you give to anyone reading this that is looking for a word of advice about following their own dreams? You have to step out in faith. There will be a lot of bumps along the way, but you have to keep pushing forward.
