What does it take to launch a successful Clothing company?
It takes a lot of passion, creativity, networking, marketing and drive to launch a successful company, Even if you might lack capital and funds to start up a business, don’t allow that to slow you down or stop the process. I believe planning all the way through is very critical, taking it day by day and reminding yourself that you are closer than you were yesterday. You have to see the vision and believe it even if nobody else can see or believe it.
What sets VIC VEGA apart?
The name and meaning behind it, the backstory of it and the designs and the way it represents the Memphis culture of Grit-N-Grind. The brand really started from scratch and with the work ethic and drive that I embodied through the support and help from family, friends, and the city it is truly based on a true story, The American Dream.
Tell us about your styles.
Well, the style is very diverse as it can really fit any style honestly, we can go from street wear to luxury to just about any look, but to us it’s not about the style or the look its more about the meaning and story behind the name VIC VEGA. Vic being short for Victor- one that accepts challenges and comes out victorious. Vega- identifies as a star in the universe. This correlates to if you work hard and accept the challenges life throws at you that you can come out victorious and also shine like the star you are!
How has your brand inspired others?
The way it has grown throughout the city and in our youth, It inspires them to believe in themselves. Memphis has a lot of talent and culture throughout our youth, I want to be an example of that so one day we will have other successful entrepreneurs to come out of Memphis.
Who would you like to collaborate with?
I would love to one day get a chance to work with athletes hopefully the hometown Memphis Grizzlies they are a great representation of a young small market team doing amazing things in the NBA, a true underdog story in the league and i find that very inspiring to keep working! I hope to also be mentored and collaborate with other successful entrepreneurs, celebrities, and designers like Daymond John, Mark Cuban, and Elon Musk. My dream is to work with global designers. I wish that I could’ve met and worked with Virgil Abloh he was a big inspiration as well. REST IN PEACE VIRGIL.
