Today we’d like to introduce you to Inna Elsie Havryliuk.
Inna Elsie, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born and raised in Ukraine, small town. My parent were not rich. (What I have right now this is God help and many hard work)
I never study any art and I always thought I don’t had any talents.
I finished economical university. Worked in regular bank. But I always had feeling inside – this is not my place to be.
I moved to America just four years ago, without money, without language, without family and friends. I was alone. It took me three years to find my self here. But I never been afraid to try.
And now I am so proud that I tried…
Two things what I always loved – been photography and fashion. I started from small stuff, grow my photography skills, build clients and then I realized this is just a start.
One year ago, I got an idea to create robe. I shared this idea with my friend, she wants to be part of this business and move together, but after second meeting she steps back. (You must be passionate about what you do, if not it will die after few days, months)
And I decided to move forward by myself, I created first robes collection in three months and launched my brand “Inna Elsie” in September 2019. Collection had big success, and I realized this is my love, my baby and I want to grow it.
After a few months, I created another collection. My brand got published in New York, Los Angeles, France magazines. This year Inna Elsie brand partnering with Miss Mojus (Miss Grand United States and Miss Supranational United States.) and Miss Russina California.
Step by step moving to our dreams.
When I see my beautiful clients in my robes and I am speechless. I have my vision, my sign in every piece. And I want to say and motivate people – never copy anyone, be unique in what you do. Be patient, it will take time. Be self-motivated, and main thin always trust God. Pray. Watch for right time. Listen to your heart. Don’t be afraid take risks. Around yourself with people right people, don’t be afraid cut toxic circles. Remember life is so beautiful
“Beauty is within you, appearance should only emphasize it” – Inna Elsie
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I never had questions how it will be, I just took the chance. It’s not a smooth road, first you must invest so many times. You must be ready that your result not will be just right away.
