On November 13th, 2016 I launched my very own boutique, Silver & Gold Boutique. Today, I have some amazing photographs to share from the over-the-top launch party! Before I get into explaining things, I want to stop and thank my AMAZING parents, siblings, friends, and extended family for supporting me endlessly. I was absolutely blown away by the number of people who attended the launch event and can’t thank my guests enough for their support.
Starting my own business has been a dream of mine since I was in middle school, so watching it come to fruition has been a bit surreal! It all started over the summer of 2016. After I graduated from FIDM in June, I went on interviews and was really open-minded since many aspects of the fashion industry interested me.
I wanted to use my degree in communication and my marketing skills as well as my fashion background. I wanted to forecast trends and also shape a brand’s social media. I wanted to begin my career at a job that was going to challenge me everyday. I wanted something that was constantly changing and growing.
Interviewing taught me a lot about myself and what I wanted to do. I had the opportunity to chat with a couple of #bossgirls from a few different parts of the fashion industry over the course of my interviews, which I am so thankful for. These women were passionate about their careers, their companies, their successes, and their brands in a way that I admired. Starting my own boutique was always in the back of my mind during interviews. I listened to these women speak about building their businesses and it inspired me. After a few months of job searching and testing the waters, I came to the conclusion that my “dream job” was one that I needed to create instead of find.
At Silver & Gold Boutique, I get to wear many hats! I get to do the marketing, style forecasting, buying, brand development, e-commerce development, event planning, photo shoot styling, and a few less glamorous things…like steaming over 1,000 pieces of clothing in time for the launch event (seriously though). Every single day is different as the owner of Silver & Gold Boutique. I get to dress the women who inspire me, that’s what I love about it.
Without further ado, here are the incredible photos from the Silver & Gold Boutique Launch Party, shot by Betsy Newman. The launch was everything that I wanted it to be, so I hope you love it too 🙂 Keep up with everything Silver & Gold Boutique by following our Instagram account + liking us on Facebook.
