We had the good fortune of connecting with Amani Sams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amani, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My first business is journalism! As a journalist I get invited to red carpet events, product launch events, book tour events, etc. It was hard for me to find unique and sophisticated fashion pieces that I could wear from day to night. And just like that the process behind starting my next business was born! I wanted The Sams Boutique to be a one stop shop of chic and sophisticated fashion for all Boss Babes and creatives that need a “wow” piece for their next event or meeting.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My fashion brand is set apart from other brands because we carry chic and sophisticated fashion for business or for outings. We are also different from other brands because I use our brand to give back to the community. Something that I’m very excited about that I plan on implementing for 2022 is donating a portion of our proceeds to “Dress For Success Atlanta”.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting the city for the first time I would suggest that they visit Little 5 Points to shop. Little 5 points has the best stores for accessories and statement pieces. My favorite stores are Psycho Sisters and The Junkman’s Daughter. I would also suggest that they visit Slutty Vegan and JR Crickets!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shoutout my parents! They both have encouraged me throughout the entire process of developing The Sams Boutique brand.
