Fashion has been around and evolving for centuries. Used as a form of expression all around the world, fashion is the bookmark to culture. Amberation got the chance to speak at length with 23-year-old fashion connoisseur, Breanna Nicola Knights. Breanna allowed us a view into her mind as an entrepreneur. She wears the hats of fashion designer, hairdresser, and all round She-EO respectively.
Breanna Nicola discovered her passion for sewing at a tender age. Learning how to hand sew at the age of eight by her father; who grew tired of replacing her lost doll clothing; she began sewing scraps of old clothing together. By junior high Knights knew she wanted to immerse herself in the fashion world. Upgrading her process from hand sewn to using the sewing machines in her home economics class. Knights knew fashion was her passion. Fully focused on having a career in fashion, she pursued and successfully graduated with her bachelors in Design and Merchandising.
Her impending role in the fashion industry became evident to her when she felt the insistent urge to create her own personal pieces. People began gravitating towards the individuality and uniqueness of the designs. Breeana’s art began with her. Seeing how people were inspired, gave her the push to create a brand of clothing that allowed people to look and feel their best.
Hardships are something every entrepreneur has to face while making a name for themselves. Breanna was no different. In reality, she realized that she was struggling to balance her job as a visual merchandiser at Forever 21 while still covering her branding. She could no longer do it alone, it became overwhelming for the young entrepreneur. This prompted her to create a team of driven and like-minded persons with the vision to allow a seamless display of her talents.
