We had the good fortune of connecting with Genesis Bright and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Genesis, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Staying Consistent and making sure that I keep myself inspired and more consistency.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I sale vintage clothing and accessories , I specialize in one of a kind pieces such as statement handbags and purses 80’s and 90’s cocktail dresses , costume jewelry and anything sequin. I’m most excited about my business in the next coming months I’ve been working on some new collections that are coming out very soon. What got me to where I’m at professionally today is knowing that what my business has to offer is so different from what other people have to offer . So I would have to keep in mind not to compare my business to the next. It got as time went on . I overcame it bye watching other people who are in the same lame as me with selling and styling vintage clothing and saw how they were going against the odds …. So why couldn’t I ?
Some lessons I’ve learned is
1. Keep silent about your vision for your business and plans on doing something
2. Do not seek approval from anyone .
3.Follow people who have the same niche as you to keep you motivated.
4. Don’t look for your friends or family to be your clientele .
What I want the world to know about my brand is where ever you wear your piece / item you will always be one of a kind and will stand out that’s how I came up with a name Embellished because you’re always notice something different about the apparel rather it’s a denim jacket with jewels on it or a piece from one of our collections .
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
On Monday we would have a spa day at home and watch movies and do facials and order some pizza from a Mom and pops place . Tuesday we would do a little shopping in downtown Summerville . Wednesday night we’ll make are way to downtown Charleston and take our notebooks and write then go to kaminskys to get some desert. Thursday night we will just chill at home and have a game night. Friday night we can go thrifting around town and then share all our dope finds when we get home. Saturday we will go for brunch downtown at a bar called Starz and Sunday we can chill all day then go to the Blue Note Bistro for Soulful Sunday for great food , music and vibes!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, I will definitely have to say my parents! Growing up I watched my parents go after their dreams and they certainly taught me and pushed me to go after mine !
