After three years of holding my sketches close to my heart, THE TIME HAS COME!!!
The journey to THIS DAY has been a labor of love!!! When I launched DDCsDesignFinds in 2018, I never released my actual designs that I sketched! I just didn’t trust anyone with my name and my budding brand. That was until April 1st!! I decided to step out on faith, trust God and search for a seamstress. God sent Elvita Walters JD …..Yeeessss INDEED!!! Annnnnd in JUST FOUR WEEKS, Elvita was able to bring my prized jewels from the sketch pad to LIFE! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!! I am sooooo pleased and BEYONNND PROUD of the finished product!!!
I have learned so much during this time and know that this is only THE BEGINNING! These pieces range from sizes Small to 3X!!! I have chosen quality fabrics and the prices reflect the quality of the fabric, unique design and impeccable attention to detail!
Thank you Elvita, for taking my designs from the pad to the “runway”! Thank you to my AHHHH-MAZING photographer, Kebriana Rogers and the 8th Frame for giving these designs LIFE!! Thank you Mommy, Olevia Washington for your prayers, encouragement and support! Thank you Walter R. Johnson Jr. and Alisa Maxwell for your support, words of encouragement, and cheering me on throughout this ENTIRE process!!!
I will certainly continue to retail my AHHHH-MAZING vendor design finds, BUT TODAY…..I am PLEASED to introduce you ALLLLLL to what is the beginning of DDCsCoutureCollection……Custom designed with YOU in mind!!
All items here will be uploaded to my website by midnight this Sunday. Pre-orders can be made here and on Instagram if you DM me!!
Three AHHHH-MAZING years in business!!! Annnnd NONE of it could have been possible without YOU!!! It’s ONLY onward and upward from here!! God is the pilot, I’m just along for the ride!!!www.DDCsDesignFinds.com #threeyearsinbusiness #onlineboutique #fashion #atlantaboutique #fashionblogger #mystyle #style #onlyupfromhere #blackownedbusiness #womenownedbusiness
As we embark on Women’s History Month, I pause to salute every woman before me who dared to be a trailblazer. Thank you Queen for opening doors, marching, standing, and sitting!! I encourage every woman behind me to knock down doors of opportunity. Speak confidently! Articulate your feelings. Show compassion. Dream in color. Live with and on purpose. Open businesses. Hire, encourage and mentor other women. Make a difference.
As a business owner, mother, aunt, teacher, mentor, public speaker and church leader, I have been entrusted with an enormous responsibility to pour into the lives of many young girls and women. A small portion of the women they will become rests solely on my shoulders with every interaction. I do not take that lightly. I only hope the impact I have/had is a positive one. I pray SOMETHING I said/did planted a seed or nurtured a dream. It melts my heart to see all the great things they accomplish and the AHHHH-MAZING ways they too help other women.
This month and in the months to come. Be intentional about uplifting other women. Offer a prayer. Support women owned businesses. Fix her crown. Wipe her tears. Be her shoulder. And MOST IMPORTANTLY, If you can’t cheer on your sister, don’t be a hindrance to her success!!! After all……THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!!! http://www.DDCsDesignFinds.com #womenhistorymonth #womensupportingwomen #womenempoweringwomen #changemakers #trailblazers #leadership #queens #thefutureisfemale #ddcsdesignfinds #onlineboutiques #mompreneur #womenentrepreneurs
What other way can I recognize an AHHHH-MAZING end to Black History month than to salute and pay homage to my mother, Olevia Washington. Mom was the FIRST BLACK to EARN her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Northeast Louisiana University! Libby (as my daddy called her), you ARE the epitome of class, intelligence, perseverance, style and grace!! If I turn out to be HALF the woman you are, I’ll be doing awesome! Phenomenal woman….PHENOMENALLY!!! #blackexcellence #mylegacyisrich #mybestfriendismySHERO
The launch of my boutique was truly a faith LEAP from my comfort zone! Here we are coming up to my THIRD anniversary!!! I’m learning so much and my business is better because of it. Thank God for small victories, more profit than last year, and steady growth.
None of it works without customers….. so THANK YOU!!
