Hope you are all doing great today! I have some NINETYFOUR87 updates to share with everyone!!!! It’s not that kind of save the date, God knows I am not ready for that anytime soon!
Before I share some of the updates, I just want to take this time to thank everyone for all their support for both ALSL, NINETYFOUR87 and the other things I do. It really means a lot to me!
I’ve gotten a lot of messages regarding our official launch date and well I finally have an update! The NINETYFOUR87 is expected launch date will be sometime in September 2020! I do not have the exact date at the moment, but I am hoping everything goes well and we can officially launch in September 2020! The collection will be available on the NINETYFOUR87 website/online store only. We are launching a few pieces for every category. Early to mid 2020 is when I and the rest of the future NINETYFOUR87 team will be travelling to a few Canadian cities to shoot photos and videos for each campaign. Our look book for every collection will be released about a month or two before we put them online, so you have an idea of how everything looks and the prices for each item!
2 years seems like more than enough to do everything, but in reality, it’s not a lot of time. There’s still a lot to do! I will admit sometimes that I am way over my head and sometimes I just wanna give up, but then I remind myself it will be worth it in the end! I am in awe of everyone doing this adult thing. It’s haaaaaaaarrrrdddd work!!!! I mean when I wanted to start this when I was in my final year of high school/freshman year of university, I was like “oh this is going to be easy!” Boy, was I wrong! It’s hard work! There’s a lot to do. There’s everything from finding the time to work on it to designing the actual items, working with a professional to get the correct measurements to researching ethical materials and ethical ways to start a business and a whole lot more. I have put everything into this and I cannot wait for everyone to see my vision come to life!
The NINETYFOUR87 website will officially be launched sometime Summer 2020. Here, you can sign up for our mailing list where you will get updates, news, promo discounts and more! However, our inventory won’t be available to view on our website until the actual launch date. I am looking around to get website design inspo and it’s been really fun! I want the website to be accessible to everyone and very easy to use!
Not only are we launching an online store/website, but we’re also launching an app! It will be similar to the website, but there would be more benefits! I’ll be hiring someone to help create the app soon!
First comes website, second comes an app and third we are launching a loyalty program! I have a rough draft of the loyalty program and will show my lawyer to see if everything is legal, makes sense and if it will work! I already have a rough sample of how I want to present customer’s their loyalty cards! AHHHH SO EXCITING! I have different ideas on how to treat our amazing customers for supporting me and NINETYFOUR87 and I can’t wait to reward you!
And last, but not least, our launch party and fashion show! We will be having a launch party and fashion show before the actual launch date! It will either be in August or September, depending on my schedule and those that are really important to me. I am so excited for this day…. on my spare time, I love browsing Pinterest and planning it! The only thing I don’t have so far is the venue (but I am looking for the perfect venue to fit everyone) and the guest list (okay, I have a rough draft). We will have a limited amount of tickets available for public invites and of course, this launch party and fashion show will benefit our FABT FDN.
I am hoping to have a few collections ready for 2020 and roll them out by season. I want NINETYFOUR87 to be launched before I go back to get my PhD and open up the cafe/restaurant. If I was doing all 3 at the same time, I don’t know if I would be able to handle everything.
Thank you for your support, it truly means a lot! 💙
