Today we’d like to introduce you to Kay Campbell.
Hi Kay, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Ever since I was young, I have always been interested in fashion, and it really took off once I turned 11 was and able to be more in control of my wardrobe. During the school week, I had to wear a uniform, so on weekends, I would want to shine when it came to what I wore.
It wasn’t just about looking amazing for me, though, it was about looking unique. I didn’t want to wear the same clothing that everyone else wore, I wanted something different. I would mix and match clothing to fit my personal style and look amazing.
As I got older, my interest in fashion continued to grow. I knew how to style even better to the point that strangers on the street were stopping and asking me about my clothing. They would want to know where I bought my outfits. I was also told by my friends and family that my outfits looked terrific.
The only sad part was that fashion was still just a hobby for me as I pursued my career in higher education (my other passion). I knew deep down, however, that I wanted it to be more. So I made a declaration that one day I would open a boutique.
Fast forward to 2021, I shared my vision with my cousin and current business partner, Tanya. She loved the idea and decided to partner with me. In April 2022, we decided to open our online boutique. The pandemic has taught us that life is short, and you simply have to go out there and try while you still have a chance.
I didn’t want to delay this dream any further, and while I don’t know what the future holds for me, I am willing to put it all on the line.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Starting a boutique has not been a walk in the park. The biggest challenge we faced when we first got started is the delay in the shipping of our pieces from our vendors.
However, we have already seen improvements in this area as the global supply chain issues improve.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Kanique?
We offer a variety of clothes in the latest styles that make women look stunning and attractive for every occasion. Our collection is selected to help women stand out!
We pride ourselves in selecting sophisticated styles for women to ensure that they are comfortable, confident, and look their best. Our collections are made to last and are sold at a reasonable price point.
Additionally, we listen to our customers’ needs and often provide styling advice for any occasion.
Once we have established an online presence, our goal is to open a brick-and-mortar store in the Baltimore area. In the meantime, we will be doing pop-up shops so our customers can experience our services in person.
We plan to expand our pieces to include plus sizes.
