Q- Where are you from and what’s your age?
A- My name is Jasmine I’m 26 years old from Harlem, New York.
Q-When did you start working on your line?
A- I started working on my line May 2016.
Q-Describe your line in three words?
A-My line is Fabulous Street Chic.
Q-What or Who INSPIRED you to start your business?
A-My clients inspired me to start Cream. I started out doing 1 of 1 statement pieces for myself. I was often complimented on items I wore so I thought it would be dope to share these pieces with others. It started with just people in my community or a friend of a friend and now I’m shipping packages to Italy and I’m so grateful. I could share something so special to me with everyone.
Q-Since starting your business have you had any setbacks?
A-I cannot say I’ve had setbacks yet. But I have experienced concerns with my price point and feeling like they are too low for some of my items. I want my items to remain under a certain price point so it is fashion that is affordable for all. Sometimes I feel my price point for certain items isn’t even worth me selling when looking at the profit outcome, but being able to share my style with others makes it all worth it. I’ll get the profit together sooner than later.
Q-What sets you apart from your competitors in the industry?
A-Well I’ll start off by saying just because there are so many other brands, it doesn’t mean we have to compete. There are so many clients that all have different styles and different budgets I think we can service them all without putting ourselves in competition with one another it takes many different pieces to put a look together and multiple brands can be apart of that. What I can say about my brand is that I pride myself in the quality and love that go into my handmade and my handpicked pieces.
Q-Where do you see yourself in 5 Years?
A-In 5 years I see Cream on some really positive and influential women. I would love to see Cream at an award show in a mainstream publication on your favorite celebrity, activist, entrepreneur, girl boss.
Q-What do you want people to know about your product?
A-I want people to know I’d wear everything that I offer to my clients. Each piece I choose to sell all are pieces that are special to me because I either handpicked or handmade it.
