Hello! Out of everyone that I've met so far in Philadelphia, I've felt most inspired by one of my former peers at Philadelphia University, Victoria Pickens. Like myself, Victoria attended PhilaU for fashion merchandising and management. I met her through my school's style publication, StyleLine, when I was just a freshman. I was instantly taken aback by her effortlessly cool style and clear drive and motivation. Through working with Victoria on StyleLine, I began to learn more about her and admired her hard work and dedication to her fashion-oriented goals.
Victoria graduated last year and has since then launched her own online magazine, Darla Magazine, and more recently through Darla Magazine, co-launched a streetwear brand, Rich Broads. Rich Broads seeks to provide creative, driven women with hip streetwear. Location also plays a key role in the brand as the brand is based in both Richmond, VA and Philadelphia, PA. Victoria explains, "We're excited to start creating and sharing merchandise that reflect the lifestyles and cultures of girls from Richmond, VA + Philadelphia, PA. Both cities are close-knit with creatives who are passionate about fashion, music, and various other forms of art and we want to share our communities with the world from the perspective of a 20-something dream chaser."
So far, Rich Broads has released a mini collection of three different limited edition tee shirts: a "Petty" tee, a "hustle" tee and a "DREAM" tee. The tees retail for $30 each.
