Academic Background

Natasha completed a Fashion Management program at George Brown College

What made you want to become an entrepreneur?

My mom was such an inspiration to me as I grew up observing and being involved in her own business.  My passion for entrepreneurship started early, by 10 years old I was already walking the streets of Mirvish Village, dressed in my vintage clothing, and handing out flyers for the store.

Why did you create your business?

I could see ways of taking my mom’s store concept and adapting it to a modern approach. 

What successes have you enjoyed so far with building your company?

Opening our second physical store location, was such a major achievement.

What is one piece of advice you would give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

“What turns someone into an entrepreneur is their sacrifice and unwavering commitment to the growth of their business. My advice is to practice to commit and commit to practice!". – Natasha Roberts
