Surprisingly starting out in construction, and eventually finding her place amongst the stars with her god given talents of influence and creativity. Scarlett is a significant example of determination, and the prettiest grit the world has ever witnessed made manifest. As we all know, what we wear, and how we present ourselves is of the utmost importance in business. Mixing patterns, playing with colors, effectively combining denim, into a board room ready suit while still screaming individuality, is a gift that is rare for people to possess and give. It is a life changing event when you find cloths that speak for you, and Ms. Scarlett Monroe of RedFunk Collection dispenses just that.

Arriving at a destination of abundance and prosperity and having someone whom is supportive and encouraging along the way to continue her journey into greatness, is an energy of beauty that exudes from Ms. Monroe, and I speak from experience of having her conversation and bubbly personality overwhelm me with comfort and relatability. Scarlett gave 3RY Magazine a moment of her time, to talk about some of her experiences, her brand, and her upcoming nuptials!

First, Congratulations are in order on your engagement! Could you tell me about you, where you’re from, and about your brand RedFunk Collection?

Thank you Thank you! Well, I am from Detroit born and raised, I’m a mom of to a great son, a fashion designer and stylist. My brand RedFunk Collection started after realizing that construction contracts weren’t producing the consistent income I was looking for. I always had a knack for putting this together and being creative and some of my family and friends brought it to my attention in my moments of wondering what my next steps would be, that I was already doing it. So, I turned my hobby and love of fashion into a full-scale business.

Wow! That is so awesome, so who would you say influenced you or inspired you when it came to fashion?

My mom was a shopaholic growing up! So, I really got it honest, my grandmother was also quite jazzy! I’ve always loved fashion and being creative, and my mom was a heavy influence in my love for cloths and fashion.

Being a young black woman in the fashion industry, have you faced any hardships or adversities that you had to preserver past?

What makes me sad is that sometimes, women don’t work together well. I’ve had the experience of some of my designs being stolen by someone I truly admired, and it placed me in a major setback. It taught me valuable lessons about being cautious but was something that I really did have to make it through, but I did! It was just something I always looked at as disappointing.

If you could tell an aspiring entrepreneur anything to inspire them or motivate them to get started, what would it be?

Be patient, stay determined, it will take time to be successful, and most of all have faith in God and in yourself. Never give up on and you will succeed!

I think that is some great wisdom and advice for our readers! Now let’s talk about this upcoming wedding! How do you and Michael get along and is it an equal supportive endeavor?

He is truly more supportive than anything. We are are both entrepreneurs and are always bouncing ideas off of each other. A great example is we just bought our home and he know I need space to do what I do, so he made sure I have the office because “I need to be able to work as stress free as possible”. So yes, he is so supportive and helpful and we both hold each other up in all that we do.

Well, I have a son, and Michael brings me 3 bonus blessings, so we are content and perfectly happy with our dynamic and plan to love on and enjoy what God has already blessed us with!
