Kissed by BO
The Heart of it all.
The umbrella company to all brand extensions, and subsidiary brands
It all started with an idea. Kissed by BO was birthed in 2013, at Kent State University. Formerly named BO Style then re-named "kissed by BO" randomly sitting at a restaurant of a friend'ss birthday gathering, in 2016. Starting from selling t-shirts with my logo on them, and my photo-styling services in the ballrooms of KSU to outside picnics, it grew into the powerhouse, locally, notable known Fashion Brand it is today. Catering to clients who are your social misfits to the ultra-conservatives. Kissed by BO is the umbrella to all of it's extensions and subsidiary brands. One would consider kissed by BO ltd, as a conglomerate which breaks down into 3 main components, 1, styling 2, design/retail, and 3, production.

"You've never been kissed until you've been kissed by BO"

The Paper Bag Chronicles
"But can you rock a paper bag?"
After styling for some years, I seen there was a need change the narrative of how women and young girls felt in their skin. As a stylist I was not truly helping people as much as I could, thus creating The Paper Bag Chronicles. This philanthropic subsidiary brand- showcases self-love photoshoots, Confidence based Fashion Show, and self-love workshops/ brunches. This brand was built upon confidence- " Being fearlessly unapologetically confident in yourself and all you do. "The Paper Bag Chronicles" will; help to build and develop a better sense of self, even greater sense of self-love and showcase women and girls of all shapes, sizes, color and creed beng fearlessly and unapologetically confident in themselves.
