Kiyante: I loved wearing swimsuits and fashionably dressing up. My early 20’s I traveled to Atlanta, Miami, Vegas and Los Angeles a lot, those type of people embraced creativity and also being sexy in bikini’s.
Yoey: Did you always sell clothing or just started after the success of the bikinis?
Kiyante: No, selling clothes always been a thought but 2016 when I found out I was pregnant I had to make it a reality.
Yoey: What do feel separates your brand from other pretty face women online selling bikinis?
Kiyante: Im a real women doing what it takes to make it happen For my family. I work hard , late nights with no loans and investing into my business instead relying on others. This brand has given me stability!
I am natural, I’m doing business outside my home where my kids reside until I get it to a level it needs to be. Nothings pretty bout that lol.
Yoey: Why did you choose to mostly model all your own products?
Kiyante: It’s a different vibe and perspective when customers see you rocking your own brand, despite a beautiful 5”7” model and that bring me more customers to be honest.
Yoey: Where is a dream vacation spot for you, somewhere you never been before?
Yoey: As a girl from New Orleans I must ask when you having a day off from your bikini-diet Name your favorite place to pig out and what’s the meal?
Kiyante: Lol I don’t do diets, I’m from the hood but like my soul food, and seafood! If I’m not at Broad & Banks for gumbo, I’m at Castnet’s or Cajun’s Seafood for boil crawfish, crabs, and sausage. And I love the Lamb chops at Ruth Chris!
