Hi, I’m Sabrina Pillajo-Thomas, my business is a beautifully handcrafted clothing brand, made of recycled fabric for young women. this is Gracias Eli Material that is no longer used, become one of a kind pieces that are worn by someone new. Whether it was once used as a tablecloth, bedspread or drapery, Gracias Eli creates fashionable clothing. Every woman deserves to feel unique and beautiful. The customers at Gracias Eli are young women between the ages of 14 and 25. Eco-friendly, or not quite, Gracias Eli encourages a green-way of life. The fashion and textile industry is one of the most wasteful businesses in the world. I want to continue creating pretty clothing while reducing my business footprint. My brand only produces clothing using recycled material, minimizing fabric waste. My competition are other clothing brands for young women, especially if eco-friendly fabrics are used in their business. I will use popular social media, such as Instagram to promote Gracias Eli. Hashtags and the “shop” section on the platform will be used to publicize. I will also have a website developed for customers to shop on. Seeing that I’m a social student, I can promote to many people my own age and older. For more exposure I will ask a few Instagram “Influencers” to wear my products and tag Gracias Eli. This will be seen by the targeted audience, bringing more attention to my business. The prices for tops range anywhere from $15 and up. Shorts range $20 and up. Skirts are $25 and up. Pants are $40 and up. In the beginnings, Gracias Eli will be an online store and eventually get a store space. My business will succeed because it’s innovative, creative and realistic. Society is becoming more cautious as to what they’re wearing and where it’s coming from. Even if someone isn’t aware, the fashionable clothing I design will attract and they will continue to support my green business and it’s approach to an eco-friendly lifestyle. Gracias Eli -- spanish for Thank you Eli. Named after my abuela Elizabeth who taught me to sew at a young age.
