Read on to find out how Inces started her fashion brand out of sheer passion and get inspired to turn your own dream into reality.

How it started. "Fashion has always been a field that I have been interested in ever since I was a little girl. So back in 2012, I bought a sewing machine and learned the basics of sewing. From then on, I started making my own clothes. Then I thought, it would be a great idea if I could share my designs with others and see people wear it, so I started Inces last December 2015."

Why Inces. "At that time, I was into the '90s slip dress, so I made a couple in pastels and pinstriped. Since then, I designed pieces that I know would be on trend in the coming months."

Young entrepreneur. "Being a young entrepreneur is definitely hard because you only have limited resources, so you're forced to really make do with you have."

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
