"Lets make it happen."

Fashion Gxd Magazine : How did the idea for your business come about?

Ambishes Diva: After my dad died  on July 4th, 2016 i started doing alot of DIY projects to keep myself busy and not cry over my dad every day. I was looking for a t shirt to wear to a hair show back in March 2016.I couldn't find any designs that I liked so i decided to make my own t shirt. While i was at the hair show people were stopping and asking me where did i get my shirt from and wanted to order one. I did some research on starting my own t shirt business and it was fun coming up with designs. 

Fashion Gxd Magazine : How do you find people to bring into your organization that truly care about the organization the way you do?
