Meet Lady Luxe by Classic Indulgence
What type of business?
What is the story behind your brand?
I grew up in the family jewelry business and fell in love with fashion. I wanted to share with the world my designs and show them accessories can be luxurious and affordable.
Why this focus?
One accessory can change the look of your entire outfit. That one perfect accessory gives you a boost of confidence to complete your outfit.
What inspired you to get into fashion?
Even though I loved fashion and designing, I never thought about getting into the fashion world. After I graduated college, I worked part-time for my aunt who had a jewelry business (it was meant to be for the summer only), and 14 years later there I was still working in the jewelry industry. After she retired, I decided to take a risk and start my own jewelry business in the middle of an unstable economy. I realized after all these years that fashion was in my blood and I loved designing jewelry that was easy to wear and affordable.
Are you self-taught/passion driven or did you go to school for this?
Self-Taught. I learned how to make jewelry through my mistakes. There were so many times I taught myself a new technique entirely by accident. I love how you start out with a design in mind and end up with a completely different look. Coming up with color combinations are so much fun but at times stressful too because you want to make that perfect piece.
What or Who is your style/design inspiration?
Everything and everyone is my inspiration. I will just be walking, and all of a sudden the get inspired by all the colors and patterns around me.
What has been the biggest success of your brand, to date?
The most significant success for me has been my loyal customers. I started the business with some struggles, but all the support from my customers has made it all worth it. I have come a long way, and nothing motivates me more each day than to know that my designs can be someone’s one perfect accessory and put a smile on their face.
What would be one of the biggest style myths in Plus Size or Big & Tall Fashion?
The biggest myth I think is that because you are plus size or Big & Tall you do not have the same choices for fashion and accessories as everyone else. I have worked with over the last 16 years with many Plus Size ladies and always made sure that any jewelry I design can be worn by everyone. My fashion philosophy is fashion should be fun for all!
How do you think the plus size industry has grown over the years?
I think over the last few years the fashion industry has realized that the majority of people in this country are not size 2 and the plus size industry cannot be ignored anymore. I have always felt that it was the forgotten customer base for most of the fashion industry.
