Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think one challenge that I have overcome thus far is balancing both school and work. Traveling around makes it hard at times but it is definitely up to me to make sure I maintain my honor roll status in school.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I started sewing in March of 2022 as something to do in my spare time. My first-ever collection came out in June of 2022 at Atlantic City Fashion Week show. I stepped out on faith and made that collection in two weeks! Since then, I’ve been able to practice and perfect my craft. Having modeling experience, I always wondered what it would be like on the other side. SIRE SEVEN-ONE-ONE stands for a few things. First, SIRE is my name in reverse. A sire is also a male ancestor, which is one of the reasons seven-one-one follows behind. July 11th is the date my grandfather passed away. SIRE SEVEN-ONE-ONE was created to honor my grandfather. In the future, I would like to pursue designing clothes as a career.
How do you think about happiness?
When Eris is not doing outreach work or on a runway or stage, she is an Empathy Leader among her peers and maintains an Honor Roll status in school. Eris also enjoys traveling the world, trying new restaurants and spending time with her family.
