Fashionistas Fashion the Future

I was so inspired by last week’s broadcast of What Women Want Talk Radio.  We had fashion moguls Megan Grassell and Marissa Lewis on our live broadcast, two young, enterprising ladies making waves in fashion.

Megan Grassell founded Yellowberry, a brassiere company for teens and tweens, after she could not find an age-appropriate bra for her little sister. What I found interesting about Megan’s story was her ability to push back when all department stores offered were push-up bras for her young sister.  So often we go with the flow, or resign ourselves with “That’s the way things are.”  Megan didn’t accept the status quo when it came to bras for teens and tweens and has made it to a successful business.

Marissa Lewis, founder of Miss Jumpin, came to Los Angeles with dreams of making it as an actress but rekindled her love of fashion and now runs successful and philanthropic enterprise in downtown Los Angeles.  Marissa always loved jumpsuits and quite literally followed her dreams to where she is today.  Hers is a story of listening to her deep self and knowing when to pivot and adapt.  Marissa also has tremendous commitment to her downtown LA community and she exemplifies the moxie and pay-it-forward approach of the millennial businesswoman.

Listen to this powerful conversation here.
