Creator of POSHGLAM, a worldwide fashion outlet, lives in Atlanta and talks shop with 11Alive

Creator of POSHGLAM, a worldwide fashion outlet, lives in Atlanta and talks shop with 11Alive

Atlanta, GA --  Currently the Black Enterprise Entrepreneur Conference and Expo is in town and I wanted to find a new local entrepreneur to talk to me about their business.  I decided to sit down and talk to Kimberly Stone the owner and creator of POSHGLAM, an online Fashion outlet that lets you buy high fashion designs for a discount.  Kimberly is busy women who is currently in the middle of organizing and being a media sponsor for an upcoming Trunk Show for the House Rossil and Sobral on May 28th.  I was able to send over a few questions to Kimberly and the following is her response.

How long have you lived in Atlanta?

I’m a Georgia peach, I was born and raised in Atlanta and I attended Spelman College. I later transferred to New York University.

What neighborhood do you live in Atlanta?

I live in the East Cobb area and spend my free time working and traveling to different cities to meet new people and promote POSHGLAM. I have friends in NY, LA and Miami as well as globally. I’ve found running a blog to be a great way to build relationships and to help unknown talent become discovered globally via the World Wide Web. I think Social Media has really opened a ton of doors for networking. The best part about being an entrepreneur is meeting new people all over the world and more importantly building organic relationships outside of the social media realm. Though my communication with friends and colleagues is global, I’m proud to call Atlanta my home.

Tell me about your organization. (where, when, what, why, how)

POSHGLAM started out as a side project and has since evolved into a global online fashion outlet. Its way more than a blog, it’s an enterprise that continues to expand daily. I have a couple of columns that we promote outside of the international column. We haven’t fully launched them globally yet, but we are gaining some tremendous traction. POSHGLAM.co.uk filters to the London Column, POSHGLAM.fr filters to Paris and surrounding cities, POSHGLAM.it is our Milan column. I recently purchased POSHGLAM.co.za after been inspired by Nelson Mandela’s initiative to help South Africa’s troubled textile clothing industry.

I’ve admired the art of fashion design from an early age. I started sewing at 4 years old, after going to the fabric store with my mother and discovering that she was having something made. I decided to make something of my very own. My mother sat with me and a needle and thread and my first creation was born. Though I am an entrepreneur first, I have always dreamed of being a designer myself, which fuels my love for my fashion clients. I have entertained side projects (i.e. capsule collection etc.) and I’m working on something unique for the near future so stay tuned for that.
