Behind The Brand Meet the lovely ladies behind  the brands featured in this magazine.


CHERNÉ MEET CHERNÉ OF CHERNÉ ALTOVISE

I started making jewelry at the age of 10. Through consistent encouragement and support I continued making and selling my pieces at church functions or vendor events. In 2008, I began making full collections displayed through runways. That’s when Cherné Altovise was born.


WHAT MAKES YOUR PRODUCTS UNIQUE?

Our products are unique because they are all designed and made by Cherné herself. I pride myself in serving the everyday fashion icon.

ADVICE FOR ASPIRING JEWELRY DESIGNERS?

I would tell aspiring jewelry designers to stay true to yourself and stay a student to Your craft. Always stay open to new ideas.

GWANYAN MEET GWANYAN BARKER OF KPELLE DESIGNS

I started Kpelle Designs after I lost my parttime job. What started as a hobby gradually became a functional business. For the last three years I was a full-time student balancing my small business and college life. I recently graduated from the University of Delaware.


EXPLAIN WHAT KPELLE IS AND WHAT KPELLE DESIGNS MEANS TO YOU? Kpelle is the name of the tribe of the greatest population in Liberia (which is where I'm from). Kpelle Designs is about embracing your culture by adorning yourself in handcrafted jewelry.

WHAT HAS ENTREPRENEURSHIP TAUGHT YOU? Entrepreneurship has taught me patience, strength, and optimism. What you plan to do may not go your way. It teaches you how to become more strategic in your actions. I've also learned that failure is only negative if you perceive it that way.

HOLLY MEET HOLLY DRAPER OF SHOP DRAPED

I started Draped after losing my job as a counselor. To keep myself occupied while job hunting, I would sew and design my own pieces. When wearing my pieces strangers would always compliment me and tell me I should consider starting my own business selling them. I started seriously thinking about it and then took a plunge into entrepreneurship 3 months later.


WHAT MAKES YOUR DESIGNS UNIQUE? Draped is a complete reflection of who I am. The sayings on tees, clothing patterns, and designs are all all created by myself. About 85% of the items in my store are made in house rather than being factory made. There's a lot of love in our products.

WHAT'S THE MISSION BEHIND YOUR BUSINESS? My mission behind Shop Draped is to encourage women to be unapologetically themselves. Our motto is "Spread Your Colors", which means to embrace and share your individuality confidently with the world.
