Where Do You Find Inspiration ?
With Morgan young
Introduce yourself! Who are you?
My name is Morgan Young, I am 22 years old from Long Island. I just graduated from the University of Delaware with a BS in apparel design. About 2 years ago I started a denim apparel company with my boyfriend called AndAgain. Now we live in PA and work in Wilmington growing the brand full time.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I’ve ever received is to not care what anyone thinks about you. There is so much judgement and jealously out there and letting these people get to you is only going to hold you back. Starting this brand I constantly wanted everyone to love it and to fit in, but I found the most success when I was true to myself.
What do you love most about yourself?
I mostly love that I am comfortable being different. I don’t go out and party much because I am very passionate and happy following my dreams to grow this brand. I find that a lot of people follow what society norms are even when they don’t enjoy it. I love that I am able to say that I don’t like to do things that most other people my age always do. Being young and starting a business is definitely not the typical thing to do and some people think it is too risky but I have become comfortable with discomfort.
What motivates you most?
I find this question really hard to answer. I am not motivated by money but more so motivated to do something different to disrupt such a large industry. I really just love being able to grow a business with my significant other and deal with the hardships and success that comes with it.
What do you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward?
Most of my days are spent doing very detailed work towards the business whether that’s sewing and fulfilling orders or creating new styles it’s really easy for me to get distracted on what the goals are. Growth really happens when we are able to high level think about what we want the future of the business to be and what things need to be done at large to meet these. This is what really helps us move forward.
What is something on your bucket list?
I love to travel so a lot of things on my bucket list include traveling all around the world. One of my goals is also to show as an official designer of NY fashion week.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration through other artists that are different then myself. I would rather do things that are very different and uncomfortable to push myself further then constantly do things that are normal. I also get inspired by my surroundings especially when I go up to NY. Seeing different types of cultures all blended together is very intriguing to me and I think that comes out in a lot of my work.
