If during your online shopping ventures you have not yet stopped by EGOCLOSET, do so now and thank me later! EGOCLOSET is an online shop offering unique clothing and fashion accessories based in Vancouver. Every item is hand-picked by the owners, Amy and Jade and they have a client base all over the world.
Tomorrow night you will get an opportunity to check out their style at the “Ego Spring Fling” – a tweet-up where you can join them as they show a private look at what’s to come, give away hundreds of dollars in gift certificates, and release an exclusive promo code for deep discounts on the site! The event will be held Tuesday night from 7pm – 9pm at The Refinery on Granville.
Now back to the ladies of EGOCLOSET, Amy and Jade. We were lucky enough to sit and chat with these lovely ladies about life as an entrepreneur. Hope you enjoy their answers as much as we enjoyed their company and passion for fashion.
VCB: How did you come to start your business?
Since we were young, we’ve always experimented with different styles and looks when it came to fashion and we’ve always loved to be different. After moving to Vancouver we decided that we wanted to transform our passion for fashion into a career and the rest as they say, was history!
VCB: What has been the most challenging thing about starting your own business?
We would have to say communication, since we grew up in Korea and moved to Vancouver a few years ago, it’s been somewhat of a struggle making connections with people due to the language and cultural differences. But we think we’re getting better!
VCB: What does Ego Closet mean to you?
It’s our baby and we’re so proud of it! It stands for everything we believe in and we really think we have the potential to transform Vancouver into a leading city for fashion. We think the Egocloset girl is the example of the modern day Westcoast girl: she always looks stylish in an effortless way; she just rolls out of bed looking fabulous!
VCB: We love the brands you sell! What drives your inspiration for fashion?
We get most of our inspiration from fashion bloggers and people we see on the street. There are so many stylish people nowadays and it’s really refreshing to see how people put outfits together in their own way. Although our style is unique, our pieces are incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into anyone’s wardrobe.
