What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
I live and breathe fashion in all its many facets. Itâ€™s always been a passion of mine and the center of my universe. As a child, I was into collecting pieces from my mom and siblings and coordinating them to create a desirable ensemble for my peers. Honing that natural gift over the years led me to my first retail position as a shoe merchandiser, which helped start my fashion journey.
It was an unsettling feeling inside that lead me to start my business. I felt that I was more than what I was doing, which was working for a retail company for 13 years. I feel I was placed with the company to learn, grow and develop and now it was time to take the lead!
