We had the good fortune of connecting with Arijana Bradley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Arijana, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my brands success is authenticity. The Fashion industry is huge, which makes it harder to be noticed. I found success in designing one of a kind pieces and staying true to myself and my brand.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As a small fashion brand I am most proud of how far my designs have come. Some of my designs made it on TV, and I even dressed a NBA star! It took me a long time to learn garment construction and to perfect each piece. Sewing is not easy, but I learned if you practice daily that you will get better. My journey in the fashion industry has been amazing and I want the world to know that I truly design and make everything with a lot of love and care.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely stop by a few rooftop places. For example the rooftop at the Met. The week would be filled with Broadway AND off Broadway shows. We can’t forget about museums, I personally love New York transit museum. Also a walk through Central Park and Astoria Park. Favorite places to eat Keens steakhouse, Comfort Land, empanada mama.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’m going to pull a Snoop Dogg here and dedicate the shoutout to myself! As my own brand I truly do everything on my own. I create all my patterns, I sew all the garments and any photo/video/marketing is also done by me!
