A Chat with Afrovelvet
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Afrovelvet focuses on both identity and style. It’s not just about what you wear on the outside, but who you are on the inside radiating out.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My mom was my initial inspiration for starting my business. She was just so unapologetic-ally her! Everyone loves her, because of her genuine image. I want everyone to have the opportunity to genuinely represent themselves.
What do you love most about your job?
I love when someone begins to wear something they never thought they’d be able to “pull off” and you start to see them feeling more confident and in control of their own image.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
One customer told me he’d only ever let me style him, because he felt like I understood and knew him like no one else. I’d only known the guy for a few months, but he’d grown to be so comfortable with my help and was very pleased.
