For all of you who are not aware, I own part of a business, a business that I completely adore, I spend hours a day maintaining, sometimes working for over 50 hours a week, our business is called Neo-Geisha X. I am pleased to say we are finally getting the exposure we have worked so hard for.
There seems to be a plethora of Alternative Retailers online, so remaining competitive has always been a challenge. We originally started as a online footwear store in 2008 and that slowly flat-lined. So we pulled up our socks and both took a small business course, and we re-launched our store in 2010. I am pleased with our ability, we source the most intricate and different designs for a variety of occasions. Primarily focusing on local and talented designers. However, after years of operation we finally got offered the chance to showcase our clothing, shoes and accessories in a Alternative Fashion Show to support World Goth Day, a fantastic cause, and I was quite bewildered….Does this mean we are a contender now?
Here’s a photo of us when we first re-launched, in 2010 promoting our business in a Goth/Fetish nightclub. Look at our small pile of business cards…hahaha
Now in 2013, I didn’t get one of ‘us’ but we were wearing custom made Neo-Geisha X t-shirts with Dusk Moth Designs outfits & accessories to promote of amazing store…Of course I managed a selfie, haha.
These are our models making us so, so, so proud! I had tears in my eyes watching these beauties strut our lines. Proud mother hen moment., indeed!
