One year of the Official Instagram @streetwearchick
Im a streetwearchick at heart. Always involved every business idea surrounded by the thoughts of changing the industry for us girls in streetwear. Thinking about creating agencies, clothing lines, and venturing into thrift shops to pull ideas to conceptualize garments that I wanted to create. Taking on sewing, knitting and crocheting to continue making my love for fashion grow. Being five feet always put me to find solutions to the malfunctions in measurements of clothing that I would find.
So then I thought that there’s so many girls out there that are just like me! Creating everyday! Whether its creating outfits, having a passion for the streetwear industry and closing the gap of streetwear and women. I always found myself scouting for garments in the men’s section and I always felt like why should we have to conform to this in society.
Creating the instagram allowed me to create a platform of such talented women. I always see something in each and every one of you! All the women I have posted and will continue to post, really inspire me personally. There is something I see in the photos I post that make me so inspired! I put this account to inspire others, as well. By looking through these posts sometimes we want to see how to wear certain pieces or even just to applaud the creativity and the thought of putting pieces together.
I created the account in my boyfriends car on December 31st 2016, after having a whole rant about that I really give it up to these girls everyday for being so fabulous and killing it in streetwear. I want everyone to be recognized for who they are and to be discovered in this evolving world. I want girls who come from all walks of earth to be put into the spotlight for everyone to see who they are and the message they carry. A lot of the mainstream brands out there that show women in streetwear like Nike, Adidas, and Puma, etc, are showing models in streetwear but I really wanted to focus on the girls who are thriving everyday to make a better life for themselves; the girls you look at and your just so motivated because they inspired you! This is the feeling that I want all the followers to have when looking across the Instagram. That not only are there pictures of wonderful women but you to can get inspiration by looking through the account for yourself. Inspiration of clothing, make up, styling and even inspiration to go on and get out there to jump out your shell in whatever it is that you set your heart to.
This instagram is such a big part of my heart that I treat like its my baby! I am always so attentive and I make sure that I respond to each and every one of you if you have a question. I want to say thank you for believing in me and making this happen this past year! Thank you for all the comments, DMS, emails and all the photos that you tag us in. I look at each and every tagged photo <3 I am so grateful and never in a million years would I have thought I could have made it this far but with confidence, persistence and focus, anyone can accomplish what they want.
Here we are entering 2018, and I have so many goals set up for @streetwearchick. Stay tuned and continue to love what we have to offer, as well as, this journey we are all on.
