It’s never easy to make a career transition. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to let go of a career you have dedicated some time to and leave it behind for a new career, sometimes in a completely different field. After retiring from the U.S. Navy, one savvy business entrepreneur made a complete pivot from naval veteran to fashion maven with the launch of her successful apparel clothing brand.
The New Orleans-based veteran has always had a love of fashion and when she retired from serving in the military, she decided to get back in touch with her love of fashion with the launch of her clothing boutique, Coco’s Wardrobe. She also manufactures all of the clothing in the Big Easy with the goal of providing stylish, comfortable clothes for women ranging from dresses, skirts, rompers, and more for an affordable price.
“I wanted to design and sell clothing that I would love and would want to wear,” said Brittney Nicole to Black Business. “I also felt that other women were looking for something different than most of what they were finding in stores, so I set out to design clothes that both look sophisticated and feel incredible. I am completely dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of my customers wearing something that makes them feel amazing.”
In addition to clothing, her boutique has also extended its collection to stylish face masks amid the COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, pandemic available through her website.
