For the most part of my life it has always been about perfection and success. When I entered the industry of Fashion And Beauty, I started feeling a lot different. After college, I tried working and succeeded for a while. I discovered how passionate I can get when what Im enjoying. In this industry, everything is crucial. You have to look like a certain way to feel accepted. People downgrade you when they know they're better. The only support I get is coming from my family. Regardless of this, I felt fine and confident. I never had the insecurity most women have. Mainly because Ive always been contented with everything. When I turned 22, everything changed. I went through depression because of those physical changes. People I knew from the industry started noticing and not in good way. It wasnt something I couldnt accept. I started understanding women more. I try buying clothes and cosmetics to make me feel good but seeing their models didnt really help. I decided to start my own business and advocacy. I wanted a brand that is personal. Personal because my goal is to empower women. Make them feel theyre accepted and loved. The sad part is, I am over powered by brands and other business that sells vanity and superficiality. Ive been dreaming and been trying to veer away from them but it's hard. I only had 1,000 pesos in my bank account (im not even kidding) I took the risk. I invested it but then it didnt exactly become a success. I came to a point where I was going to look for a supplier in another town with literally 20 pesos in my pocket. I was lucky enough that the car we used had enough gasoline. I cried that day. I never knew it will be hard. Hard because I didnt have the money to build that dream. To empower my sisters. To make a simple startup. It never occured to me that good intentions come with expenses.Im here asking for support. I have two small business. Cosmetics and Selling my own designs. Designs that I would take photographs of using REAL WOMEN. I had to stop for a while because I dont have the money to pursue my 9-year-old dream. The cosmetics business was just by accident. So far, I get enough from it. I dont overprice my customers what I offer them isnt really the cosmetics but the customer service that I give them plus my effort in making everything personalized with heartfelt letters to remind them of their value because as a victim of depression, I want people to know that someone thinks theyre beautiful. Your support will go a long way for me and my dreams. Thank you.
This may or may not work but the funds raised will go to my registrations fees and labor for the designs as well as the cosmetics in demand by women nationwide. My goal is to create a website that caters clothing that is priced at 1500 pesos and below I wont be doing a mass production since my mission is to make women have a taste of my dream and own something that will make them feel confident. Quantity I usually do is 1 to 2 pcs per design. As for the cosmetics, I want to create a site that is similar to popular cosmetics site but I target to sell drugstore brands and cruelty free brands. They are all priced at 1000 pesos and below. The rest can be talen care of by the amount I gathered through my products. I usually just add 100 pesos per item. so I get 1000 pesos per month or per 15 days. depends on how many customers buy from me. So far I managed to get 8k likes on Facebook in a span of less than 2 months for the cosmetics. and only 1000 for the clothing. I stopped the clothing for a while because it is much more expensive to build it. I do all the work. hand picking the materials, I have one dressmaker, I do the packaging myself. I usually buy them at the supermarket.
