Why did you start your business?

I Started It After My Original Plan Evolved

I started my boutique, emporium, after my original plan to open a coffee and tea shop evolved into a full fledged clothing and accessories boutique. I have always been passionate about fashion and had an innate sense of style. I take great pleasure in the beauty and artitstry of fashion. My friends and family were constantly asking me for styling help and I found that I was spending a good amount of time dishing out tips and tricks and helping to organize closets and pick outfits for events. As I was putting together my business plan for my coffee and tea shop, many of the people in my inner circle encouraged me to take a more expansive direction and include clothing and accessories. I did, and five years later, emporium is a huge success. I spend every day working hard doing what I love.

Thanks to Sara Zamikoff, Emporium!
