Erica did not go to school for fashion design, but she did receive some education in fashion merchandising.

I would describe my line as an extravagant, urban, glam, exotic, sexy, and bold.

Her line is called Allure Paris, and it was designed to add a beautiful aspect to the captivating woman.

Three designer’s that inspire her are Michael Costello, the Blonds, and Betsy Johnson.

Her favorite fashion icon is Kim Kardashian.

She styled for notables such as; Judy from the Bad Girl’s Club and worked on a custom outfit for Lil Kim.

In 5 years, Erica hopes to see her brand expand exponentially.

I see more traffic then ever on my soon to be website www.allureeparis.com.

Her favorite material to work with is coutil. Erica believes that the cons about being an entrepreneur is dealing with judgments.

Your constantly judged and anxiety it can be very overwhelming. The pros is that your doing something you love and you dont mind waking up to it.
