Meet Treshon Lyniece of Skyscraper Collection in Woodland Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Treshon Lyniece.

Treshon, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
My Journey started as a model, I remember finally getting singed to an agency after years of building my portfolio and facing so much rejection in the industry. I packed up and moved to Chicago from my hometown Detroit to jump start my career. I thought my modeling career was finally about to take off, only to experience even more rejection and hit what felt like rock bottom for me. I was devastated and questioned if I made the right decision and even wondered if modeling was my purpose. I began to channel my focus on building my own brand. I couldn’t get these companies to hire me, so I decided to hire myself. and create a platform for other women like me as well. My “WHY” developed from constantly feeling over-looked & uninspired by the opportunities that were being presented to me.

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?
Building my brand has been the most challenging yet rewarding journey for me. One of the struggles I face is staying encouraged. When you have a vision and your sewing seeds to make it grow but the process is slow it can be very frustrating at times. Sometimes I wake up and I feel motivated to create, promote and work my brand while other days I feel defeated and lost. I made a lot of mistakes because I simply did not know what I was doing at times. I didn’t have a team, or mentor, to be real I didn’t even have a real budget. I was still working a 9-5 making minimum wage hoping I have enough to get inventory with my checks. I’m learning patience, I can’t say I’ve mastered it but I am growing and trusting that God is aligning the right people, & resources for me to do what He has called me to do here.

Skyscraper Collection – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a model, entrepreneur, creative director and designer. Through my love for modeling for other companies my desire for entrepreneurship grew. I am the creative director behind my brand as well as a lot of photoshoots that I do. I am currently working on manufacturing my first designs for my brand, I recently had some samples made and I can honestly say that is what I’m most proud of. I never saw myself as a designer, although I’ve always had visions of styles that I wish existed. It wasn’t until I felt completely uninspired by the vendors I was using that I knew I needed to dig deeper and that’s what’s I’m in the process of doing. What sets me apart is my story behind my brand. My “WHY” is for every person who has ever chased a dream while overcoming obstacles. I want more people to see what I’ve built and feel inspired to continue to do what they love.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck; I believe in alignment and favor from the highest. I feel blessed, but I’ve also worked hard for so much of what I’ve accomplished. In some cases, I was blessed to be at the right place to get certain opportunities, or meet certain people, but I never saw it as luck only Gods perfect timing.
