Vanessa Merrell is one of the most talented young business women I have had the pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and passion in the industry is second to none. In fact, I was a little surprised to see in the past year that she has taken her “self” and her work very seriously. She is a true leader in the industry and I am so proud to work with her.
Vanessa is the founder of V-Mentors (now part of her own branding agency), which is a company that helps small and mid-sized businesses and startups succeed. She was also the first female CEO of a startup in the past decade, and continues to be a strong advocate and leader in the industry. Her company has raised several rounds of funding and has made a name for itself with her “Glam-Up” collection of products and services.
She’s worked with the likes of Adidas, Ford, and Nike, and more recently she’s been a part of the V-Mentors team that did the Beyonce collaboration for Beyoncé’s album.
Vanessa Merrell is a businesswoman who made a name for herself by taking on the corporate world, but she has also managed to make a name for herself as a fashion designer. She has a particular fondness for floral prints and her latest collection comes with a new line of flowers that come with an accompanying blog. Her blog is titled “vanessamerrell.
It seems that Vanessa is in the business of being the only woman in the world who can make a $9.99 shirt look good – without needing to pay the girl $10 for a professional retouching, like almost every other designer in the world. The collection is also available in stores, but you have to go to the website to see the real deal.
We’re also loving the colorful, flowery prints in her new collection. We think it’s a great way to make a fashion statement as much as to show off a little personality.
Although, we did notice that the fabric quality of the shirts is just a little off. To compensate, the designers are offering a free retouching service, which is pretty sweet.
The designer from the book “Vista” by Michael Jackson is a genius. He creates a statement that is absolutely awesome. His new set-up, like the one we’ve shown in the trailer, is just as awesome. If you’re interested in learning more about him, check out the link above.
We are big fans of this book by Michael Jackson and have read the entire first part and liked it. However, it does seem that the designers are trying to say something different here. The shirts are not as cool as the book, and the fabric quality is just off, especially the jacket. But the cool thing about these shirts is that they are already on sale for a cool price of $24.99.
The good news is that we are getting all the info we needed for a second edition.
