I’ve been inspired by many different people across the web. We all do it. Quietly stalk pages for people/brands who seeming have it all together and think – WOW! I wonder how they do it all?
Shari of Bon Bon Vie Apparel was like that for me. I stumbled across her brand years ago (before I decided to launch my own line) and was just in awe that this girl was getting sh*t done. From her shop layout, the professional design, photoshoots, and viral products. Everywhere I looked I saw people wanting, wearing and posting themselves in their Brown Skin Lady tees. I even purchased a few for myself.
She seemed to have figured out the magic mixture of building a relevant brand with products people love.
Then it happened. I read a post saying she was taking a break for health reasons. I was in shock. I felt like I knew her. But did I? Because of her story and features across the web, I bought my first set of shirt from ThreadBird.
I thought, if I cold use the same screen printer for my shirt, I’d be on my way to building a brand as solid as hers. She was my first t-shirt mentor (in my head). So when she reached out to me telling me how much she loved my brand, I had to tell her. How many times has that happened in your life? Crazy, right?
This is why I hopped at the chance to ask her to be the first brand spotlight on the blog.
So let’s dig in.
