What were some milestones you hit after going through Factory45?
Through Factory45, I created a brand and a product that I believed in, that was beautiful, high quality and socially and environmentally responsible. We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised almost $90K. We were featured in news outlets such as Who What Wear, Darling Magazine, The Boston Globe, and ABC World News. We also won the Saks Fifth Avenue Emerging Designer Showcase, and will be carried in their stores next year. It was exciting to see my dreams become a reality, and to have such a positive response.
I feel so lucky that I found Factory45 when I did. I now have the tools I need to succeed, and feel equipped to build a long term brand that will have a positive impact on the fashion industry.
