What clothing looks are popular at the moment?
As far as I can tell, the trends are leaning more toward business casual and for many that have to look presentable but not exceptional. Simply attire like khakis or a nice pair of jeans, with some loafers and a decent button down shirt seems to suffice.
What should women never wear?
I think it depends on the women first and foremost, then the item itself. So for instance a woman that is self confident about herself, her abilities, and her comfort level, may wear spandex to the grocery store as well as around the house whereas a woman that does not feel comfortable about herself in her own skin may feel thats too revealing .
What is your most popular product?
My most popular product to date has been the Lace Body Contour Dress! Every time I get them in I sell out of them very fast! Last summer I had about 4 dozen that came in and I sold out of them in 1 weekend! This summer I had 12 dozen in stock and they sold out within a week! Of course I wish all my products would fly off the shelf!
What is your history in the industry?
I orignally started out in this business in 1997 but soon gave up and did something else. Last year I decided to give it another try since I always wanted to have my own brand. So for the past two years I have been building my brand and Im looking forward to the day I cash flow $1million. I realize now that if I had stayed with in 20 years ago, chances are I would have well surpassed that many times over.
What kinds of jobs do you take on?
I take orders when ever and from where ever I I can. I always look for opportunities to push my brand everywhere I go. I alwasy have business cards and give them out freely! I have a particular client that did business with me last year only becuase I told her I would have the manufacture make something for her in her size, and I did. She contacted me this year again for a dress for her birthday celebration out of the blue! And I took care of her again!
