Who? My name is Joi French and I am the designer of Pirate Romance, an accessory line and Cut+Seau, a women’s RTW line.
Where? I am based in NYC and Vegas.
Why are you Artist of the month? I am artist of the month simply because of my creativity. I am committed to giving the consumer exclusive and affordable pieces!
What inspires you? Inspiration comes from anything and everywhere. I am an extremely visual person, I’ll see a color, a shape and I want to translate that into a design. I want to mimic the emotion from visual stimuli into my designs.
Is there anything else that you would like to create/accomplish that you haven’t already? Somethings I want to accomplish, I definitely want to open my own physical boutique and I am going to create more men’s accessories because of the demand.
Do have any advice? Advice? Be honest, humble, and open. I never feel I am too successful to receive advice. Also remember how you would like to be treated as a customer and extend that in your own business!
