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

Hi Sana, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I realized through my interactions with others & the compliments that I received from wearing my jewelry & outfits. I turned a hobby into a money-making venture.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I venture down different avenues when it comes to my creativity, my art, my passion, my work! I AM a fashion designer, artist & all around creative spirit who soars into UNLIMITED possibilities while pursuing my highest joy!
When I was a teenager, Lerners Shops was the popular place for trendy fashions.
I can remember spending hours upon hours going through the racks of clothing, only to purchase “MAKE DO” assembly line, generic outfits. NOTHING seemed to speak to my personality.
During this time I was dabbling with designing & sewing my clothes as well as for other family members & friends.
My 11th grade prom outfit was a sleeveless jumpsuit which were Palazzo pants. I even painted my platforms to match my lavender & white outfit.
Who knew?
During that time you could purchase nice size remnant pieces of fabrics from .25 to $1.00.
On an occasion I made a little girl’s dress out of pink satin & I took it to Belk Lindsey’s to purchase ribbon for a sash.
While shopping a woman complemented me on the dress & inquire as to how much I was going to sell it for & she quoted a price of $35!!!! I WAS FLABBERGASTED!!
That was the WORD that made me want STEP INTO the world if fashion.
My Mother purchased a 1927 Wilson sewing machine for $5 from a neighbor & the carosel ride began.
Work is not work when you’re BLESSED to do what you LOVE & are PASSIONATE about.
It is my FREEDOM to create & express myself; to give birth to something that did not ecist.
I AM INSPIRED by ANYTHING & EVERYTHING the Universe has to share.
I custom design one-of-a-kind clothing, jewelry, home decor, art or whatever else comes to mind.
Creativity will lead you onto an unlimited journey if you step onboard.
I attribute my Spiritual appetite bringing the balance & tools I need to sustain me through any test of time or challenge. I find that a positive attitude will be the oar with which I row my boat! I AM DEEPLY ROOTED in my beliefs & will WALK ON WATER in a minute!
One of the most astounding experiences I continue to witness is the transformation one makes when adorning themselves with my garments or jewelry.
What sets me apart with my craft is my ability see what isn’t & bring it into MANIFESTATION.
FAITH is the most POWERFUL to tool you can utilize & ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF….IF YOU EAT, SLEEP, DREAM THAT THANG…..THEN THAT’S YOUR REALITY AWAKENING YOU TO YOURSELF!!!
FAITH
FOCUS on your Purpose
ASPIRE to Succeed
INDICATE it by your Actions
TRUST your inner Unctions
HANDLE your business!!!
FAITH
FABU….FAITH ALWAYS BLESSES U!!!
