Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan “Gold” Michalski.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Megan. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
When I was still living in Arizona with my parents going to college and then beauty school, I realized I wanted to pursue my fashion career. It’s something I always knew deep down but was told I needed a real job to fall back on so I wanted to get a degree for my parents. Once realizing I wasn’t going to succeed in areas I had no interest in, I literally packed all my bags and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 20, not giving much notice. I just decided on my own this was right. And it was!
Has it been a smooth road?
I learned a lot on my own here. Right away, I went through some rough times – but I was determined to work on my fashion brand. I focused on my vision and never stopped trying to create- clothing, accessories, and content.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a fashion designer, graphic designer, photographer, wardrobe stylist, hair and makeup artist, and creative director. I specialize in fashion design, especially swimwear. I am most proud of being self-made, starting from the ground up I put in tons of groundwork with no help for years. I am self-taught I never went to a fancy school, such as FIDM, but I believe if you are dedicated and want something bad enough you can teach yourself! What sets me apart from others is that my designs are unique and designed for all women not just one segment. Additionally, many of my designs are gender-neutral.
