About this project
U ARe! Fashions started with an idea to create t-shirts. One day, about 3 years ago, I told Kenny rather dreamy, “you know babe I would love to design a line of custom t-shirts for women that when they wear them, they feel so beautiful and confident." He said “then, I think you should do it.” I replied, "But I don’t know how to sew." I will never forget the impact of the next two words he told me: "Well learn." That moment was the start of an incredible development, not just of U ARe! Fashions clothing line, but of who I am as a person and my purpose to inspire women thru the platform of fashion.

A good friend of mine who owns a boutique in Georgia, currently carries the line of hoodie dresses at her shop. Recently, en route to Georgia, wearing a hoodie dress, she was approached by a woman in the airport who complimented her appearance and mentioned how pretty she looked in her dress. The woman was invited to the boutique and the very next day showed up and purchased two hoodie dresses. Due to the high demand and response to the fashion line, we have partnered with a production company so that U ARe! Fashions can expand.

Once we have inventory in stock, U ARe! Fashions will pitch to boutiques and retail establishments nationwide. We envision the line will really take off quickly and anticipate the need for assistance to further expand. We would love to find a few 2nd or 3rd year college students, fashion design majors, and offer them apprentice positions. The opportunity to offer a learning experience that has strong potential to develop into a career designing for U ARe! Fashions is a tremendous blessing and just one way in which we can give back.
Being a professional IFPA figure competitor, another passion, I was encouraged by Kenny to make and design competition posing suits… and thus the birth of Center Stage Posing Suits presented by U ARe! Fashions. We are on track to launch Center Stage Posing Suits in June 2013.
And by the end of this year, the goal is to have a clothing line designed for young girls. Amazingness is happening here!
I recently resigned my full-time employment of 13 years to focus on the expansion of U ARe! Fashions. Talk about a leap of faith! Anissa
The foundation of MFB Productions (an acronym for My Father’s Business) was definitely a divine progression. It was a lifelong dream of mine to become an actor, I knew this since I was 5. I did not know when it would happen but the opportunity presented itself and I was ready. I resigned my fire fighting position and went all in. Shortly after the launch of my acting career, I realized I had many unleashed talents. Gifted to write, direct, produce and edit, I began developing my project portfolio.
With big ideas and limited resources, I had to be creative. I purchased whatever studio equipment I could afford in order to mastermind productions as if I had a full crew. I even converted our garage into a studio set. For one production, I unashamedly used multiple Flip video cameras and a hand-held to accomplish the task. You do what you have to do to make it work. I’m sure all artists can relate to that.
My overall vision is to grow MFB Productions into an establishment known industry wide for presenting quality with diversity, covering all genres from comedy to drama to spiritual. As the establishment grows as does the capability to offer opportunity to others. Kenny

Risks and challenges
Our endeavors are already underway. They are not going to happen, they are happening! Any business endeavor requires strategic planning and financial resources. This is our investment and personal funds are currently supporting the ventures. We are doing what we can in stages as income replenishes. The overall budget for expansion of MFB Productions and U ARe! Fashions is outlined at $110,000 and we are 100% dedicated to seeing the commitment thru. All funds raised will be utilized to accelerate expansion.
I have experience with production from the casting stage to editing stage. It will be a new experience to work with a full crew but I have been faced with challenges working solo (ie. weather conditions, lighting issues, absentee cast) and have been able to quickly develop a work around plan. So the biggest challenge, which isn't a challenge at all, is to create quality works for the world to enjoy. It takes the right people to achieve something great so building the right team will be key.
Keeping up with the many orders that we anticipate for U ARe! Fashions clothing is a desired challenge!
We are blessed and so excited about everything we are doing!! The plans are aligned and moving forward. We dare to dream big and hope you too can feel the excitement and passion behind what we are offering to the world. We thank you with heartfelt gratitude for sharing in our vision.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
