Website Wednesdays is a day of the week dedicated to the star of your online business: Your website! Each Wednesday members of The Chyc Circle Facebook Group list their websites in efforts to network, show off their online real estate, and also possibly be featured on The Chyc Circle Blog. This week's Website Wednesday feature goes to: Rhonda Lynette
I asked designer & CEO of www.rhondalynette.com, Rhonda L. Mapp, about her inspiration behind her online business and what her goals are for her online business and this is what she had to say
It is, "a clothing brand that fits every attitude. Meaning our garments symbolizes sophistication, uniqueness, and confidence. Every garment is stitched by me with love, care and detailing that’s what makes this brand unique. I enjoy sketching out designs, drafting the pattern making for my garments, and sewing. I enjoy doing this because its different. Everyone doesn’t know how to sew or create their own patterns so they hire someone to do that for them. But I’m truly blessed to be able to do all these things myself! As my business grows I do plan to partner with a manufacturer so they can produce my garments but for now I’m doing it all myself.
I graduated from NC A&T State University in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design. At the time, I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to do with my degree because it’s so much you can do within the fashion industry. I was scared because I didn’t know where I would fit in, I didn’t know what area I wanted to be in and for a few years I shied away from pursuing a career in the fashion industry. I had to realize I didn’t get this degree for no reason and I didn’t go to college for 4 years for no reason so I prayed. I asked God to reveal my skills and lead me in the direction He sees fit! So, I began to sketch out designs, I taught myself how to draft my own patterns and I practiced sewing. So, my calling is to be a fashion designer. I love every bit of it because I can be as creative as I want and there are no rules!
I just launched my first Spring/Summer 2017 women’s top collection last month. Our tops have the uniqueness of lace and zippers. They are knit fabrics and are very comfortable to wear. They all provide versatility because you can wear them as casual tops or dress them up while you’re having a night out of town! The zippers are all functional so you can wear a top with the zipper down or you can unzip it for a new look or to just show some skin (perfect for the spring and summer weather). My goal is to have every woman feel comfortable, confident and sophisticated while wearing Rhonda Lynette. Our slogan is “Clothing That Fits Every Attitude”. You will stand out from the crowd and make heads turn. "
