Before we get these blogs started I wanted to personally welcome each and every one of you to my store. Just last year this was merely a thought. A thought conjured up after tireless nights trying to figure out what I was going do for a career and who I was going to be in this world. Because let's face it, being a 30-year-old "Instagram model" who gets paid in free festival tickets and merchandise was not going to cut it! And I felt like that was exactly where I was headed if I didn't do something quick.
I don't remember what exactly made the lightbulb come on for me to create my own rave brand. It could have been the fact that I was broke AF, that I wasn't able to attend all the festivals I wanted, that brands I wanted to work with didn't notice me, that black girls weren't getting hired or promoted as much as other girls, that brands weren't paying me what I deserved or paying me at all for that matter, or maybe it was a combination of it all, hell! All I know is one-day last year I realized that my efforts would be better spent on my own dreams and since then I never looked back.
So again, I would like to welcome you to my store and encourage you to sign up for the GMP GANG Newsletter so you can get notified of new drops, sales, and blog posts like this one :) You can expect blog posts on EDM current events, fashion tips, event and project recaps, interviews, and much much more! This is my brand as well as yours and I want us to feel like family. In the comment section please tell me a little bit about yourself and what you look for in a fashion brand.
Can't wait to see you at the next rave!
