Why I Started newinspired:
Originally from Montreal, Canada, in 2008, my family moved to Anguilla where I graduated from high school in St. Maarten (back & forth everyday by “school boat!”). I graduated college from my dream school, the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in NYC, with a Bachelor of Science in Advertising & Marketing Communications and a minor in History of Art. It turned out to be a (relatively) useless degree, because I pursued a career in TV production instead.
After working on a top late night talk show in NYC and a popular comedy show in Canada, I asked myself…
Was it fun? Yes. Was it exciting? Yes. Was it ultimately fulfilling? No.
So, in mid-2015, I realised that while I liked it, I couldn’t see myself in TV for the next 20 years.
I needed a change.
My parents, who were now living in Panamá, welcomed me “home.”
A new problem popped up: shopping online and not being able to exchange or return purchases.
Now, I needed to be 100% sure of my size and the item’s quality.
This is how and why newinspired was created — to review the sizing and quality details of a piece, so you don’t end up with an ill-fitting garment that’ll fall apart after one wash either.
… and to share advice on how to style pieces here and there.
