Fashion Gxd Magazine: How did you get started in the fashion industry?
Maggie Five Chambers: I got started in the fashion industry by interning for various fashion companies. I eventually was hired as an Assistant designer for a high-end womenswear company, and then a year and a half later, Five Chambers was born.

FGM: Who is your biggest inspiration?

 

MFC: My biggest inspiration is not just person, but many of the people around me. I see a lot of people with little hope for the future. They want to live their dreams, but are held back because of fear. These are the people who inspire me the most to propel forward, because I want them to truly know that anything is possible for anyone no matter what your past looks like. Your past does not have to dictate your future. The young girl who dreams of becoming a famous dancer, but her parents tell her dancing isn’t a “real career,” I do this for her. The high school and college students who want to be successful entrepreneurs, but don’t know where to start, I do this for them. The mother who thinks it’s too late to pursue her dreams, I do this for her. These are the people who inspire me the most.

 

FGM: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

MFC: In 5 years, I see myself continuing to live out what I believe to be my purpose on a much broader scale, and through a variety of different mediums. My life’s mission is to inspire people to follow their dreams by showing them the unlimited possibilities of what can happen when you step out on faith, and to help people to step into their greatness by first allowing them to see a bigger and better version of themselves. Everything that I do, from my fashion company to the new initiatives that I have planned within the next few years, is created with that mission in mind.

 

FGM: Have you had any formal training in your field

 

MFC I have a Bachelor or Arts degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising. I have worked alongside couture designer, Christine Kendall, in London, England, and I was the Assistant Designer for Kymerah in New York City before launching my men’s fashion company.

 

FG: Who would you like to work with next?

 

MFC: I have a wide variety of people I would love to work with from music artists, such as, Justin Timberlake, Miguel, Bruno Mars, and Asap Rocky, to actors and athletes, such as, Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum, Lebron James, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Durant. I even have female celebrities that I would love to design custom work for, such as, Lady gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Iggy Azalea. These are only a few of the many people that I want to work with next.

 

FG: How did you meet Pilar Scratch?

 

MFC: This is actually a funny story. My friend tagged me in a post that Pilar had on Instagram. It caught my interest, so I emailed her to find out more information, and the rest is history as they say it!

FG: What is the purpose of your company or talent?


MFC: The purpose of Five Chambers is to spread a positive vision for the future by inspiring you to celebrate your individuality. Our high quality products are specifically made to make you feel good about yourself and bring out your individualism. When you feel good about yourself, you raise your self-perception. When you raise your self-perception, you start to define yourself. When you define yourself, you want to find your purpose. When you find your purpose, you want to live your purpose. When you live your purpose, you've mastered life. By just wearing a Five Chambers garment, you will begin your

journey to feeling like the great champion that you are, on the path to mastering life.

 

FG: What message are you trying to influence with your work

 

MFC: My message is simple. Follow your dreams and find your purpose, and let absolutely nothing stop you.

 

FG: What celebrities have you worked with?

 

MFC: We have worked with Dominick Adams from the show Devious Maids, Neo-soul music artist, Bilal, Emmy award winning violinist, Damien Escobar, and a lot more in progress.

 

FG: How was it working with Musiq Soulchild as known as the Hustle

 

MFC: Working with The Husel was awesome! I was super excited when I found out that I would be working with him, because I’m actually a big fan of his music. He’s a very talented artist, and super cool.  I look forward to working with him again in the future.

 

FG: what's makes you a fashion gxd

 

MFC: What makes me a fashion Gxd is my ability to think big, inspire people, and change the world through fashion. I was given a huge vision when I was a little girl, and I made a decision from that day forward to turn that vision into my reality. I am somebody, and so are you!

These looks in this collection are very dope. Something Musiq Soul Child would wear .

10 Fun Facts

-Favorite color is Red

-Im an only child

-favorite movie of all time is Hocus Pocus

-favorite food is French Fries

-nickname is Poo (like Winnine-the-Poo)

-I'd choose sneakers over heels ANYDAY

-favorite snack is Green and Black Olives

-jeans and a T-Shirt is my favorite outfit

-apple juice is my favorite and also the best juice in the world

-im the epitome of goody


 

how I got started in the Hair Industry

-I've always wanted to do hair since as far back as I can remember. While everyone I knew wanted to be doctors and lawyers, I wanted to own my own salon. I went to college, received a degree in Business and I just was over the entire ‘get your degree get a high paying job’ It wasn't until a day after visiting my Great Grandmother and her asking me did I still want to own a chain of salons that I decided to pursue Cosmetology and it was the best decision I have ever made.

 

My biggest inspiration

-My mom will forever and always be my biggest inspiration because without her none of this would be possible nor would I be here. Although I do have inspiration in my field, no one can top my mom.

 

Where do I see myself in 5 years

-although I dislike this question a lot because of all the job interviews I’ve been to…, I just want to be happy and enjoying everything that will be in place for me.

 

Have I had any formal training in my field

-I have been in a professional setting of a salon since I was 18 years old, I am now 24. My friends has helped me become better by letting my perfect my craft on them as well. And taking classes to become better because the learning never ends.

 

Who would I like to work with next

-I have no specific person I want to work with next I just want the opportunities to continue to be given to me. Maybe I'll have the answer to this question in 5 years :)

 

How did I meet Pilar

-I actually have known Pilar for YEARS! We went to middle school together and was in the same classroom together always buggin out. Facebook kept us connected THANK GOD because if it had not been for that, I probably wouldn't even been in this spread. :)

 

The purpose of my talent

-the main purpose of my talent is that I get to be me. I get to wear what I want and rock my hair how I want. I get to express my creativity, I get to be my own boss, im in control of my success and no one can take that from me. And if I was to fail, I get to take the responsibility because it would be no ones fault but my own. And with knowing that right there, let's me know that this was for me.

 

The message I try to influence with my work

-the message I try to influence with my work is you have to start somewhere to get to where you want to go. Which is why I've been posting every little thing I learned in school on my social media. I ask for my followers to criticize my work because that will only make me better.

 

What celebrities have I worked with.

-so far, I have worked side by side with Pilar and Madison. I have worked with VH1’s MaMa Jones. And I recently working with TheHusel.

 

Working with the Husel

-working with The Husel was just like working with people I work with on a daily bases. And k say that because, although he is a celebrity, he is very social. He didn't make us feel intimidated by the fact that he is a celebrity; he was very down to earth. And I believe that's the best part about working with celebrities is finding out their true personality behind all the cameras and things.

 

What makes me a fashion gxd

-I think its my excitement I have for this. When I’m watching reality tv shows or just fashion shows and things in that nature, I no longer watch it for the entertainment. Im watching it for the  hairstyles or the makeup trying to see what I can do to up my game so that the next time I'm watching these shows, I’m looking at my own work.
