Charli:  What first inspired you to become a fashion designer and make your mark on the industry?

Timothy: I’ve always had the passion and desire to start my own brand, however, I never had the resources or the right mind frame. After I developed those two, my friends & I embarked on our Clothes Minded journey.

Charli: Talk about Clothes Minded Clothing. What sparked the name? What’s the story, concept and message behind the brand?

Timothy: Most people are closed minded in general-Which is why we chose to go with “Clothes Minded”. Expansion of the mind is key to me. Clothes Minded represents a unique and creative outlook on fashion mixed with cultural expressions. Freedom of style drawn for artistic perspectives is what we stand for.

Charli: I know that you often do pop-up shops and events, but what cities currently host your markets — and will you expand soon?

Timothy: For now, we’re in store at “Off-Beat” located in Jackson, MS. However, due to our online store we’re always just one click away from everyone. No matter where you’re at.

Charli: What does the future entail for you and for Clothes Minded Clothing? Like in 5 years, where do you want to see yourself and your brand?

Timothy: Our main goal is to push from a domestic to an international business.

Charli: As an entrepreneur on an exciting journey thus far, what were/are your struggles, challenges and conflicts — and how are you overcoming them?

Timothy: There’s too many, lol. Being an young entrepreneur is a journey within it self, each day brings a new challenge. But being humble, open minded and optimistic allows me to over come them all.

Charli: If you could give a piece of advice to a large group of aspiring fashion designers, what would you tell them?

Timothy: Follow your heart, master your craft, don’t be afraid to push the limit. Research your field UP and DOWN. Learn from those (Designers) who came before you. Study what did/didn’t work from others and continue to educate yourself daily.

Charli: I understand that you have a Fall 2014 collection. Can you talk about this line specifically — and what can supporters and customers expect from Clothes Minded Clothing in the Spring 2015?

Timothy: We kept it cozy with our 2014 Fall Line. Made up of collegiate designs and college based color schemes- inspired transitional weather staples like hoodies, crew necks, joggers, and denim button down shirts.The collection is comprised of softer fabric, all-over prints, and our catchy “Foreign Shit” design returns. A fun, colorful, electric vibe will be our main goal for our 2015 line.
