Yesterday, my line Enerjiee, and I, were featured on Sereine Magazine as the "Career Woman Monday" feature. This is my first write up so I am beyond excited. Check out some excerpts from the interview and the CLICK HERE to read the full story!
On why I started Enerjiee:
"I was born with a lazy eye and as a kid growing up in Brooklyn; I had a difficult time accepting my “flaw”. I started wearing sunglasses every day after my 2nd surgery in 7th grade and by the time I got to college (3 surgeries later), eyewear was a part of me. The initial concept of Enerjiee was born when I started embellishing eyewear in college (out of boredom) and then I met someone who made it an actual career; I was fascinated! About a year later, I interned for that same designer and realized that I had fallen in love with designing and didn't want to look back. That’s how Enerjiee was born!"On the piece that describes me and Enerjiee:
"Honestly, it’s the simplest one out of the bunch: Monroe. I have always been the kind of girl who loves classic beauty (Coco Chanel’s one of my favorite designers), but I never liked boring. Ever. Monroe is a mixture of classic and edge; a little bit of “I’m a lady” and a little bit of “f*ck you!” That’s me and that’s Enerjiee *wink*"On the difficulties of being a new brand on the market:
"the biggest challenge has just been bringing my line to the awareness of others. I want my accessory line to be at the forefront of people’s thoughts when they think of accessory brands. I spend a lot of time just researching designers/boutiques/publications and reaching out. Some respond, a lot don’t, but all you ever really need is that one shot. I believe it’s coming for Enerjiee and it’s coming swiftly. I hope I’m ready."
