Meet Andrea Pitter - founder and creative director of Pantora Bridal and the founder of Trap Fabricks - an online fabric store that is dedicated to  independent and urban creatives by providing access to exclusive textiles.

You're going to learn how Andrea was able to take the dream she had as a kid of being a fashion designer and truly make it a reality! What started out as a hobby soon turned into a side hustle and then a full fledged business!

Andrea shares the roadmap she took to carving out a space for Black-designed bridal to shine in an industry where Black bodies are underrepresented and excluded. We touch on the ups, downs and the uncertainties - and why Andrea always chose to BET ON HERSELF and her ideas. Andrea even gets real about how her business was impacted by COVID-19 and the steps she and her team took to ensure they were able to return to business.

Here's Shontay Lundy's story: After refusing to look like a pasty white ghost with market available sunscreen, she took matters into her own hands and created the revolutionary brand, Black Girl Sunscreen, to bridge the gap of sun care protection in the black community.

We often see the RESULTS - but HOW did Shontay get here? A thriving commerce business? Distribution in over 200 Target stores nationwide? How did she get past the doubt and gain the experience + confidence to go forward with this innovative idea?

Some of the things we discuss/you'll learn include:

  • What inspired Shontay as a child
  • Why she felt her experience in corporate “extremely necessary"
  • Issues Shontay faced launching
  • Why she planned a social media launch
  • Why growing isn’t always as easy
  • How to stop doubting yourself
  • Thing to do if you want to be #1
  • Why there is no back-up plan... and more
