Grant is neither a stranger to retail nor to what women obsess over. She has owned and operated an online women’s boutique based in Houston for over 5 years. In addition to this, she spent 7 years in NYC as a costume and prop stylist and she has worked with some of the best in the fashion business. “I started to think about women who couldn’t necessarily afford a glamour gown or high end fashion must-haves. Why not give her the same opportunity to feel as stylish by designing these images that look exactly like what she’d want to wear or say, in a fresh and bold t-shirt. We love being glamorous, fashionable and multi-faceted, yet often times this is not what is being projected with regard to our image. Hey, sisters are doing it for themselves so we definitely wanted that feisty independence represented”
Presently, the website offers a collection of fashionable t-shirts with various graphics, designs and phrasing made from cotton and organic fabrics. The accessory line will launch in Fall/Winter 2010. Retail prices range from $32-$58. Haus of Swag is a socially conscious brand and they’re proud to have a resource link on their website titled, “Giving Is In Vogue” which directs individuals to a number of charities that focus on women and children’s causes across the globe. “If you reach and give back, it makes moving progressively forward that much easier – you just want others to feel good, no matter their circumstances”
