My name is Erica and I am the owner and designer of Signed e. I’ve always had a love and an infinity for fashion. My earliest memories of anything fashion related were helping my aunt fabric source for outfits she’d make for her daughter or herself. She would take me with her to Jo-Ann’s(an arts and crafts store) to buy materials. We’d go home and I’d help her cut out the patterns and she’d sew them together. I’d watch as the fabric we purchased hours prior turn into her daughters dress for the school dance or an outfit for the weekend bbq. I learned so much about fashion from an early age. However my pursuits in fashion were halted, dramatically. Growing up my family and I lived paycheck to paycheck barely having money for anything besides bills, food and other household necessities. Not knowing it at the time, I began to build the foundation of my business I have now. You see, I couldn’t get the fabric or the materials I needed to create like my aunt but I did have paper and colored pencils. I started sketching designs I wanted to create. Original pieces I didn't seeing on the runway or in magazines. I began writing down all the things I wanted to do once I was old enough. Back them my only thought was MONEY! I needed the money to buy the fabric to make the designs I sketched and BOOM; I’ll make it as a fashion designer. Little did I know, that’s NOT entirely how it works. You do need money but you also need a business plan, do you want to be an LLC or an S-Corp, marketing strategies, a team and let’s not get started on paying TAXES. I’d begin to learn all that as I went through high school and some of college. That’s right, I’m a college dropout-I never finished. *Sidebar* School simply isn’t my thing, and I’m okay with that. *End of Sidebar* I took what I learned and applied it to building the fundamentals of what I want Signed e. to be. With what I learned in school, I added it to the real life experience I received along the way from working with celebrity fashion stylists and editorial photographers. Through the years I started to solidify my plans for Signed e. and finally decided to take the leap of faith and start my own business. Signed e. launched March 1st 2018 as an online consignment jewelry and clothing store. Within a months time I was able to transition from consignment to full fledge online retailer. Our core values are to design original, opulent garments. While ensuring that all items are being produced with integrity—allowing all to experience luxury while wearing Signed e.
I wouldn't put my name on the line for just anything. Everything that is designed and produced I sign off on.
Opulent garments—Luxury experience.
