Meet Kenya Morgan of Aynekwear

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kenya Morgan.

Kenya, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started my clothing company in the summer of 2017. What started out as eyewear and lash company, I expanded on my brand by recreating thrifted clothing and then eventually started bringing my own clothing ideas to life. I hope to expand aynekwear in nearby cities and overall the entire country and throughout the world. Aynekwear is more than a clothing company, it is a company that pushes individuals to embrace their true selves and build self-love and confidence while wearing my garments.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it has not been a smooth road at all. I’ve had seamstress flop on me many times for garment pieces. I’ve had models who flopped on me many times, I’ve broken down many times trying to keep my brand alive. I’ve come to many situations where I’ve lost hope and just wanted to give up on it all. I’ve cried myself to sleep many times and I’ve dealt with battles where I just sunk into a deep thoughts about just giving it all up and question myself many times. “should I really be traveling this route? Is this my purpose, then why am I still stuck in the same spot as I was a year ago?” you know as a creative, we struggle with many thoughts and try to balance our mental health out.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I believe I am a very creative person that is what sets me apart from others. I am a go getter and I accomplish goals that are set forth and well thought out. Aynekwear has brought me into so many situations where I had to think and act fast to fix the problem. I specialize in making people stand out. My garments are unlike any others and all eyes will be on you when you walk into a room. I love creating and I love experimenting and that is something I am very proud of.

What were you like growing up?
I was an outgoing, nice and followed the crowd kind of person. You know what they say you are who you hang around with. But as I was bullied and I saw that I didn’t want to follow the crowd anymore. I started to be myself, stood out from those around me and started using clothes to express myself. I didn’t have a lot of money back then so I used to thrift a lot of clothes, some of my friends use to look down on me because of that. But what you embrace about yourself no one can use against you and you’ll eventually be an inspiration to those people who use to speak down on you.
