2015 Entrepreneurs on the Rise

With summer 2015 vastly approaching, fashionista’s and misters from P.A. to L.A. are looking all over to find the newest trends and hottest colors to rock this summer.  For many of us, we are inspired by creativity, good vibes and loud expressions to tell a story about what we choose to wear.

Within the Lancaster area and surrounding Philadelphia, many young people are taking their ideas and turning them into money. Many young entrepreneurs are breaking the mold of what fashion has been defined as it giving it their own unique and individualistic voice.

Not only is this summer about breaking away from bad habits, but it’s also about showing off what others just can’t understand… your style!

Here are the top entrepreneurs on the rise of 2015 that will have your wardrobe on another level for the upcoming months!

"I wanted to start my business for several years before I worked up the courage to leave my job of almost 20 years at a law firm in Baltimore. I've always loved fashion and had a particular fondness for vintage clothing. A consignment shop was a good way to combine my love of both. I also wanted to open a shop that had a true boutique feel so that customers would enjoy their shopping experience and feel special." -- Diana McConnell, Owner

K- Knowledge 
The word (BLVCK) or slogan "BLVCK EXCELLENCE" is used as an acronym created by Justin and Faihym, both Millersville University students, which relates to the word excellence and the positive conotation that the word has for our generation. Established in August of 2014, BLVCK EXCELLENCE is not crafted as a "black power" mechanism. If customers choose to embrace that phrase and/or acronym, then that is completely left up to them.
