The fashion industry is hard to crack, especially when you’re just starting out. Just ask Tanya Neidhardt. Since beginning her career as an actress, she has been featured in several movies and television shows, but she knows that it was only the beginning of her long-term goal of becoming an internationally known fashion designer. Learn more about Tanya’s journey in our exclusive interview with her below.
What Is She Doing?
An Australian fashion designer and blogger named Alice Zaslavsky runs a popular blog called Hello Society which documents her life as she models different outfits and travels to various places around the world. She may be young, but she has already attracted attention from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars and celebrities, including Beyonce, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and more. Having said that, you won’t find her name on any list of best dressed or most influential fashionistas. Rather than staying in one spot or following trends that everyone else is doing, Alice likes to explore unknown corners of the world in search of undiscovered treasures.
What Problem Does It Solve?
Most women are worried about the bulge in their stomach. They may exercise and wear loose clothing, but there will always be a bulge in their clothes. Wearing shapewear can eliminate that issue, and make a woman feel good about herself by minimizing curves in all the right places.
But once you purchase shapewear there is still an issue: You’ll have to take it off when you go to sleep or find another way to conceal it underneath your clothing for outings with friends and family. The problem of removing shapewear was solved with Cinch!
This patented, waistline cincher garment contains hidden hooks on either side so it can be quickly removed from the back. The hooks slide over the shoulders so no one has to see what lies beneath! The beauty of this product is its versatility as well; this garment can double as a waist trainer! So many options for such an innovative design!
Why Should I Care?
Name an influential person in history, and you can bet Sophia Amoruso has had them on her show. Amoruso, best known for founding clothing company Nasty Gal at age 18, has been called the most prominent young woman entrepreneur of her generation by The New York Times. And that’s just scratching the surface. The fashion and lifestyle maven spent this week in Atlanta shooting episodes for season two of Girlboss with Steve Harvey and Kanye West, who graciously surprised her with a six figure book deal as well. But Amoruso isn’t slowing down there – she also runs a blog (girlbombing), manages social media accounts, travels nonstop and mentors entrepreneurs while serving as an expert speaker around world. Still want more? She was named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40 twice and has been awarded Outstanding Young Woman Entrepreneur by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Last year, Amoruso was ranked number 33 on Forbes’ list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with a net worth of $280 million. She also wrote #GIRLBOSS: Rules for Life, which debuted as a number one New York Times Bestseller!
How Can I Participate?
Bethany Mota began her fashion career as a teenage YouTube sensation in 2010 when she posted a video entitled My Day Outfit. She quickly grew from just one channel to five, uploading a new outfit video every weekday for 2.5 years. Bethany now has more than 5 million subscribers and one billion total views on her videos.
We at Bubbly, admire how this 19 year old girl has gone from recording videos in her bedroom to gracing the cover of magazines such as Seventeen and Nylon. With that being said, we are very excited to announce that Bethany will be wearing our kimono dress from Bubbly Clothing Collection on Snapchat tomorrow night during The 2016 Teen Choice Awards (2016). Tune in tomorrow at 9pm EST/6pm PST to see what she will wear!
Where Should I Look For More Info?
As an aspiring fashion designer and icon, Allegra tells her story as it unfolds through her blog. Her candid conversations with fans are evidence of her commitment to inspiring women to do more.
It doesn’t make any sense for a New York resident to fly to Miami just for fun, but I felt like I had so much energy, she said. It was after that trip that I started thinking about what my life would be like if I didn’t have NYC. That led me to think about what it would take for me to leave NYC.
I love this city because people here live their lives in such a big way, she says. There are so many different cultures on every block. You can have brunch at the hottest new spot and then go buy some cheese at Fairway next door.
Follow Her on Social Media
Meghan Collinson, founder of high-end children’s fashion brand Tipsy Elves, had no idea that one bottle of wine in front of two friends would lead to her success as a renowned woman in fashion. I think it was that particular night when I spilled my whole entire story and then three hours later they said: ‘Let’s start a company,’ Collison told CBS This Morning. Collison followed through with the impulse and ended up selling more than $5 million worth of Christmas clothes in just three days. I thought, oh my gosh! I don’t have any money for inventory! And so we raised money from family and friends and put it on Kickstarter, she explained. They named their business after the elven Santa figures who populate their products, which are all meant to give back to kids in need around the world–some 100 percent of profits go towards charities like The Children’s Foundation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Los Angeles, Best Friends Animal Society (No Kill Equation), or Save the Children International. There are so many kids out there that can’t afford these products or who don’t even know about them, Collison added. And we’re doing our best to get these into their hands.
