About

The custom-made market has a dilemma, the process of custom-made clothing can be pricey and it lacks variety. You don't really get to ask a designer to make anything. I have a plan to change that! I want to create a world where clothes fit to women rather than women fitting to clothes.

This is why I started my start up, DemiRe. DemiRe is an online women's boutique that focuses on the individual. I am determined to be the reason why women can feel confident and comfortable. Comfortable because they don't feel like they have to fit into a trend.

My start up needs funding, and since I am so young with little credit history it is hard for me to get loans or business grants.

In order to build great content to market to potential customers, I will create a ready-to-wear spring/summer collection consisting of 6 original designs. This means to take great care in the choice of cut fabrics that I intent to use. I will design and sample most of the fabrics for this collection.

The manufacturing process can be very expensive but I want to work with professionals to make bulks of my designs and ensure quality sketches, technical designs, diagrams, patterns for comfortable fit clothing.

This will be the first collection designed by myself that will be displayed to the public offline and online. I also have been invited to a fashion show in London to display my clothing so I will be working towards making that a successful trip.

ABOUT ME: I am a former college student. I was only in my second year of college when I decided to drop out due to a traumatic event in my early college career, but I was determined to find that bubbly, independent, ambitious, fashion lover I once knew. When I left school and went back home I started to feel a little better but there was more work to be done! I had to prove to myself that I was capable of doing amazing things, changing lives and that my existence does matter. That’s when I started my own business, DemiRe. I used my start-up to connect with my customers in ways unimaginable and the fact that I am able to incorporate my passion with it is amazing. The more I got into fashion designing and caring more about my appearance , the more confident I became in my looks. Not only did I change my physical appearance but my journey as an entrepreneur has  showed me that I can overcome challenges, change lives and reach goals.

I'm just hoping that I can help others like fashion has helped me.

Style is more than a trend, its who you are and we want people to be able to express who they are and be comfortable in the clothes they wear everyday.  

We are creating a world where clothes fit to women rather than women fitting to clothes.

Risks and challenges

This will be my first time working with manufacturers to make designs that I have designed myself. To avoid trials and errors, I will apply the 2+ years of business management experience I have and work closely with connections (designers, pattern makers, CAD creators) experienced in my field.

I will visit manufacturers to make sure their work is quality. I will continue to work on and research the technical aspect of designing clothes so that when I present it to a manufacturer, the designs will be easy to understand. This will reduce the risk of wasting money on low quality production.
