Q: Why did the sisters open a boutique?
A: Constance and Naomi’s interest in clothes began as young girls due to the fact that their mother was a seamstress. The sisters got to experience first hand seeing clothing being made and altered; moreover, exposing them early to their passions for fashion. As the sisters grew up, Constance decided to work in retail. After consistently working for corporates such as Dillard’s, she realized she wanted a more personal experience with retailers and shoppers. Soon came a wonderful opportunity to begin their own clothing business, and the fashionista sisters Constance and Naomi pounced.
