Today we’d like to introduce you to Queen Angel.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Growing up, I always had a passion for the Television and film industry as well as the unique way our wardrobe is used as an expression to reflect our personality. In 2013, while living in Houston, Texas I begun traveling to and from Los Angeles, California, seeking to create my own path in the entertainment industry.
While creating my own path in the entertainment industry I also wanted to incorporate my passion for fashion. Therefore in 2013 I started an online business specialized in women’s shoes and accessories. Over the years, sales exceeded my expectations. In 2017, I moved to Los Angeles, California to further pursue my career in the entertainment industry and fulfill my passion for fashion. The weather in Los Angeles, for the most part, is beautiful. As a result, wearing a dress became the norm for me and that is when my online store www.QueenAngelShop.com shifted. It shifted from selling Women’s shoes and accessories to selling exclusively Women’s dresses for any occasion. As a woman who loves to wear a dress, I feel there is no other one-piece garment that is more flattering or comfortable than a dress. In the future we will add women’s shoes, accessories as well as other clothes to our collection but as of now we are focused on providing fashion forward dresses at an affordable price.
Has it been a smooth road?
My online store idea came to me as one of many gifts from God. As a Master’s in Business Administration graduate who has a passion for the entertainment industry as well as fashion, I found myself working in Human Resources as a Human Resource Manager. I became almost comfortable working for someone else and helping to make his/her dreams come true by helping them run a great company. However, something inside me would not let me settle. I knew I wanted to be my own boss and pursue my dreams in the entertainment industry and my passion for fashion. One night while sleeping I woke up around midnight with several thought in my head about starting an online company. God literally walked me through step by step as I was doing my research on how to get started. I stayed up for about 50 hours straight getting my DBA, website, products and everything else I needed to start my online company. Once completed, I told everyone I knew about my company and sent them the link to my website, they then told everyone they knew and that is how my online store sold out of everything the first time. Majority of my sales came from word of mouth. I rarely had any online social media presence. Now that I have shifted my company to selling dresses with the goal to expand soon, I am trying to build my social media presence, which is extremely challenging for me right now. That is why, I have faith that interviews such as this will help me increase my store visibility and help me succeed.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I feel like starting an online company can be done anywhere. Whatever you have a passion for I recommend that you go for it! As for my online store Los Angeles, California is a great place for my business. As someone who works in the entertainment industry, I am on set around different people every day so using word of mouth and trying to gain an online presence living in Los Angeles and working in Hollywood is very helpful to me. Also, the weather in Los Angeles makes it easy for me to sell beautifully designed dresses.
