Meet Tirsa Marie

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tirsa Marie.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
VXXXV Apparel started as a dream from a young Hispanic girl living in North Philly. I was a natural-born hustler and always had role models around me; Those like my father and brother, to show me that we can work for anything we want. I intentionally created VX to be a casual streetwear brand. In this line of business, more is what people want, but for VX, less is more. I knew I wanted VX to be more than just a clothing brand and I was going for a bigger audience. My dream is to help other entrepreneurs and business owners fulfill their dreams so in order for me to get my message out with my brand, I wanted to make my clothing as simplistic as possible. Our Dream Hustle Demand campaign extends me the opportunity to do this all while being able to have a clothing brand.

Has it been a smooth road?
VX has been far from a smooth ride, but it has been worth everything. As a new entrepreneur, breaking into this world can be scary and your biggest weakness is yourself and yourself doubt. You can literally be your biggest critic. Everybody has their breaking points. I remember being so hard on myself at a point, that I wasted about four months not being as confident in my work. But because I had that doubt, in myself and within my business, it tested my limits in a way. That’s when you will learn if being an entrepreneur is for you because that’s your make it or break it moment. Once you overcome your own doubts, nothing else in this business can break you. Of course, you will have failures, it comes with the game, but you will overcome all of that.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with VXXXV Apparel – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
VX is known for and represents those who handle business with their own unique ways. My customers and supporters witness every day how important it is for VX to stand with independence and that’s one thing our audience have grown to love and appreciate about VX. We’ve always been known to execute the exact vision. I took this skill and implemented it within my brand. We don’t follow trends or go for what is popular at the moment. Popularity dies, originality is forever. In my industry, it’s popular and suggested to stay on top of trends because doing otherwise can be looked at as a weakness. VX Apparel creates its own lane.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that this city can consist of endless opportunity. You can build a great network here, you just have to put yourself out there. In a city like this, you can really do what you want to do. You just have to hustle for it.

As a new entrepreneur coming in, I notice we need more support altogether. It can be intimidating. Especially as everyone is seen as competition when you’re into the same industry. Sometimes, you can reach out to someone for something as little as advice or direction and it barely leads to productivity. It shouldn’t be like that. Each one teach one, so we can be strong together. We are stronger together than we are apart.
