2) WHEN DID YOU FIRST THOUGHT OF MAKING YOUR OWN BRAND?
ANS: I first thought of making my own brand when I was in high school. I believe it was ninth grade . It all started as a desire to design dance outfits for my future dance team. Then from there I began to realize my astounding love and passion for fashion.
3) WHEN DID YOU ACTUALLY STARTED YOUR BRAND?
ANS: ah..I started my brand right after graduating college in 2012 . With my fashion retail diploma I was able to be a legal fashion stylist so I immediately began to promote myself and my brand.
4) WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY?
ANS: Ha! I get this question a lot. Oddly I have no inspiration in the fashion industry. You see what I love about fashion the most is that everyone is unique. Everyone designs and styles in their own way. That’s the beauty of fashion period ! The ability to express who you are without having to speak . so I just love looking at what every designer and stylist has to offer in this industry. 😊
5) WHAT IS YOUR BRAND REALLY ABOUT?
ANS: My brand is out to help elevate the world. Not only in how you look but in how you think as well. If you change your thoughts you will truly change your actions . once you do that personal style comes easy. This is why my brand is called elevate in fashion. I want people to understand that elevation is a process of time and an on going action but it starts with you . If you don’t like the way you look I can help you elevate your self image but we are who we believe we are so we have to start with self confidence first and foremost! 😁☝
6) ARE THERE ANY OTHER BRANDS WHERE YOU REALLY LIKE TO SHOP AT?
ANS: umm… As far as any brands I like to shop at…I mean I really love them all . I am currently an apparel ambassador for so many different fashion brands out there. I just love being unique and looking extremely gorgeous ! One brand I really love is Calvin Klein! His clothing is so comfortable and stylish ! He’s perfection in fashion! 👏😀
7) FOR HOW LONG YOU HAVE BEEN A FASHION DESIGNER?
ANS: I started off as a fashion designer in high school about in the year of 2008, but as I progressed in fashion I realized that fashion styling was more so my interest so that’s what I went to college for.
8) CAN YOU SHARE SOME TIPS FOR THE NEWBIES IN THE FASHION DESIGNING CAREER?
ANS: My advice for any one in the fashion industry would be these two words…. Originality and consistency. Always be unique. Do something that’s never been done. Don’t be afraid to be different! That’s exactly what wins in this industry. Also stay consistent. Never stop working. Block out all the negative energy around you and focus on that positive energy inside you! That energy that makes you keep going everyday because the one who never stops is the one who ends up on top !☺ 💪😉
9) HAVE YOU COME ACROSS ANY DIFFICULT SITUATION IN YOUR CAREER? IF YES, THEN HOW DID YOU OVERCOME IT?
ANS: Difficult situations in my career!! That’s an excellent question! Umm…. I think the pressure is on everyday with everyone to stand out and gain the right kind of attraction from this world. I believe there is always going to be people in life that will underestimate you and/or probably tell you that you aren’t good enough but that’s all naught. No matter what people say you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have a purpose so press for that purpose ! 🙌🙏😤
