We are taking I'Kandi Designs to a whole new level than ever before done. From fashion to business development, mentorship and so much more. I love dressing up and I love succeeding and helping others, so why not put it all together and make it work? I did by putting it into two different platforms that represent ONE, and the sky is the limit. If you don't see your own vision how do you expect anyone else to see it? "You" have to want it, feel it and see it daily. No one can want that for you, and no one will ever see it the way you see it. If you wake up and all you can think about is your passion and what you love to do, then it's time to step out on faith and make it happen. Because time waits for no one. Life is short and precious so live it as if there is no tomorrow. Make the biggest investment you will ever make and that is.... IN YOURSELF!
Just have faith & GO!
Who Is I'Kandi Designs
I'Kandi Designs is that inner woman that every woman has in her but sometimes don't know how to express it. She is clothed in Strength and Dignity and she laughs without fear of the future. She BELIEVES in herself. She is FLAWLESS. She is FEARLESS. She is INTELLIGENT. She is UP LIFTING. She is an ENTREPRENEUR. She is a MOM. She is MARRIED. She is SINGLE. "SHE IS I'KANDI". I'Kandi Designs is for women who love "Style" and have confidence in it. For those that love to keep it SASSY, SEXY yet CLASSY. We do not design for just one type of person; we design with all in mind. Whether your curvy, small, thick or tall, whatever your size and body type is "We got you ladies”! Remember to always "Love You" first because at the end of the day that's all that counts. "Women" let's uplift one another instead of tearing each other down. "Real Queens fix each other's crowns" without the world knowing it was croocked. Always wear a smile.... "A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear".
I dedicate myself to ensure our customers feel great about what they purchase. I offer Fashion Stylist tips on body types and what looks great on different type of bodies. Putting our customers first and going way beyond the normal scope that any company would go to ensuring that our customers are not only happy but also end up feeling great about their purchases. Over the long-term it will lead to our success in building this business. As a company we are determined to inspire and connect with our customers to put their best selves forward every day. Our platforms offers so much more than just shopping. They offer INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION, CREATIVITY, OPPORTUNITY, AND VALUES. No one else has built their strategies on the type of foundation that I'Kandi Designs is about to do. I believe strongly in listening to and learning from other people like my team and group of supporters. People will always offer new ideas and advice, but it’s important to continually stay open to it because, whether we want to accept it or not, we don’t know everything. Whether it’s a competitor or a mountain range standing in our way, we need to fight, march forward and lead by example. Sometimes, the journey will be rough, and we’ll think of turning back. "Courage is keeping the faith and grinding toward success."
As the CEO and Founder of this company my vision is to empower women and keep the faith that I am able to make a change in the community no matter how big or small that change is, every difference count. We strive to help up lift people and offer opportunities to those that most Fortune 500 companies would not. Being in corporate America for the last 26+ years, I learned that there are many ways to help build people up and it starts with business owners and the community. I still believe it takes a strong village to raise a successful community. So many times, we pass up giving the opportunities to very skilled a qualified people simply because they do not have a degree. Of course, at some levels a degree is required, but those are higher up positions that are only 10% of a business and does not bring in revenue.
As the owner of this company I plan to make this business a Corporate Fashion business and I plan to offer opportunities to people with experience and "passion". Passion is something you cannot teach, nor can you learn it, in college. I am all for getting your degree however, I plan to make a difference and open the doors for those that have passion and experience but may have been less fortunate or may not have been in a position to go to college due to family, expenses or just life itself. Skills are required to do a job. This is the entry point. We can be the most skilled company in our category and market. However, to become what we want to be, we have to align our skills with what we value. For example, our customers are valuable. We value the relationship we have created and want to protect that trust. With values such as trust, honesty and hard work, we can become more than just our skills alone.
By having values, we build a reputation that precedes us into the marketplace. People subconsciously make buying decisions based on who they think they can trust. By focusing on values, leadership develops a brand that attracts quality customers and employees. I’ve got a laser-focused vision to succeed and plan to make sure this business is flourishing. When most people would have quit, I only hustled harder. I think my personal approach, passion, faith and dedication mixed with my relentless conviction that failure is not an option has been the recipe that has led me to where I am today. Determination is the absolute number one characteristic required for an entrepreneur to succeed.
