We had the good fortune of connecting with Marie Antoinette and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Marie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is that I do this because I love it. When you believe in your brand and have deep passion for it you have already won. Many times I have worked on projects and didn’t profit a dime, but my heart was so full and I was fulfilled.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Marie Antoinette is a company that services all things fashion. From styling to fashion show production to closet organization. When a client is styled by me it’s a head to toe experience. Fashion looks are planned and well thought out. I’m most proud of my ability to transform clients and make them feel good as well as put together amazing productions. I’m still learning the industry, but I have gotten to this point by prayer (lol) and trial and error. It has not been easy but I know the obstacles placed before me is a part of the journey so I am ok with it. At times of frustration I just remember “God did not bring me this far for nothing” and then I go harder. I’m learning patience and at the same time I’m learning to not compromise the visions that I have for this brand.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
😬 ok so I’m from Tampa, Fl (Go Bucs) and I have been living here 2.5 yrs. I still don’t know the hot spots in Atlanta and I don’t go out much. We would definitely go to a restaurant and then we would find things to do together lol
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would have to say family and real friends. It’s difficult to pinpoint one person. My parents, sisters, and husband have played huge roles in my success, as well as close friends. It takes a team to produce greatness and I have that in loved ones.
