Circa81 Kids Story!!!!!
Everyone always asks me how I ended up in fashion and why did I choose the name Circa81 Kids.Well it all started in 2004 when I graduated from undergrad at Jackson State University (GO Tigers!!) I always knew I would work in Fashion and owning a boutique would be the next step in the process.
I birthed the name after my birth year and the concept came from my well dressed childhood. My mother use to shop at a family owned children’s boutique in my hometown Wichita, Kansas called “Younger Duds”. We spent so much time in that store and even modeled for them in fashion shows. They played a huge part in me opening a children store because I love children’s fashion.. and fashion period! After graduating in 2004 I packed my bags and bought a one way ticket to the "City of Dreams" New York City where I interned for Ben Sherman in their e-commerce department . My time in New York City was short due to the fact that I would give birth to my amazing son Brian the following year. This didn't stop me from achieving my dream of working in Fashion. So I then went on to work for BCBGMaxAzria, Anthropologie and did some freelance PR work in Los Angeles, Ca for five years.
After attempting to open a boutique in the City of Angeles and loosing my Corporate America Job. I was determined that now is the time to change how I was going to achieve this Dream. So I packed my bags and made my way back to my hometown Wichita, Kansas. So here we are now 12 years later...
