Our mission is to make 1 woman happy a day with a dress that boosts confidence and inner beauty. At that point, she can take over the world and face her fears by making a statement. There’s no fear in fashion, love, and life and our customers embrace that.

What inspired you to launch your business?
As a fan of all genres of music, I came across a Hip Hop song called Killer Lipstick by Ghostface. It was a story about women who were assassins that did whatever they could but under the radar, disguised by their beauty. Although I was already in the business as a online retailer, this song inspired me to develop my first brand called Lipstick Killers Collection.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
My business solved the problem of everyone woman looking to be desired, to change their look completely from day to night. Its a collection that demands attention not only to the garment, but to the powerful, strong queen inside of it. My clothes boost confidence and increase the inner seduction in women without sacrificing class. Its a lifestyle change!

What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
My biggest challenge has been funding, marketing, and finding the manufacturer locally. I am overcoming these challenges by working on my credit, making endless sacrifices through networking, gaining spiritual enlightenment, and managing my time. I have realized that in order for me to develop spiritually and in business, I need to think outside of the box and be creative and fearless.

  8. Things i have observed in terms of computer system memory is the fact there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must fit in with the technical specs of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is fairly current and there are no operating system issues, changing the memory literally takes under a couple of hours. It’s among the list of easiest computer upgrade processes one can think about. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
