Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, Shayl.
My great grandmother was a seamstress, she even had her own store. My mother took after her, always sewing, worked as a seamstress, and made all my clothing as a child. Even my prom dresses were handmade. I have always been into arts and crafts. I always wanted to learn how to make things. So I did. When ebay first came around, my mother was selling Vintage on it, till one day we decided to take our handmade work and see if it would sell. Now 8 years later we have grown so much. We started selling hair falls, then moving on to accessories, and now we have built ourselves up enough to start selling our clothing.
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Be with my family. I have a 5 year old son; he is my world!
Other than that, photography. I love expression of art in all forms. I started with photography, now I use it to capture my creative designs. It comes in handy!
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
It's a big waiting game, you never know when you're going to sell. I could do amazing one month, then be very slow the next.
What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
well, I make myself new skirts all the time! So if someone were to buy me things from my shop...it would be a skirt.
I made myself a few like this.
They're extremely comfy, and I make them in all kinds of fabrics. I actually I will be listing more withing the next month.
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be everything! A lot of things I wanted to do though did deal with the arts, and I do know that for a very long time i wanted to be a fashion designer, and I still do.
What other shops or artists out there do you love?
glamarita has been making some amazing tie clothing
HauteIndiscretion has amazing style
What does your future hold?
Hopefully lots! I have a lot of great things happening this year. Big fashion show events, press, photo shoots with awesome photographers! So my future holds nothing but a growing company here to stay!
