About The Designer
CONCHETTA WASHINGTON I have been told that I am a pretty unique person, not in a quirky way, but because I have pursued a life uncommon to most. I possess rare qualities that are somewhat out of the ordinary and I
am learning to embrace and showcase them in my fashion sense.
My career in retail began at the age of 16. I was
influenced by popular culture and talented artists such as The spice Girls,T.L.C, Salt & Pepper and Destiny’s Child. I look up to other designers likeL.A.M.B, Marc Jacobs and Chloe.
Throughout my working life, I have always been the
top seller and as soon as I noticed that there was a lack of consistently in commission checks v.s the revenue i bought into the company,I knew it was time to pursue my passion and go into business for myself.
I often think about how my designs
reflect my personality. And sometimes I wonder if I am influencing my style or
if it is the other way around. I don’t know if one is better than the other,
but either way is okay. We all inject our personalities in what we wear, and
sometimes we wear things to help us become someone we want to be. And, in that
sense, I use fashion to bridge the gap between oddness and normalcy. Who I
really am is someone who does not take fashion too seriously – I like to mix
things up, show a little skin and not be afraid to try something different.
I want to create fashions that are fun, playful
yet sexy. My designs will allow you to dress like it’s your day off! That’s the great thing about fashion
—the boundaries are, there are no boundaries….
