On dealing with negative comments and working hard for everything that she’s achieved:
“I’m used to the comments but at the end of the day I’m not concerned, because I know how hard I work. I can go to my dad and my uncle for advice, but other than that, anything that I have today, I’ve worked for. I pour my heart into it, and I live, sleep, breathe, eat it. I’m not going to sit here and prove to someone that I’m working; you’re going to see for yourself.”
On her NYFW presentation:
“I really wanted it to glow in the dark with neon. I wanted it to be interactive. I didn’t want it to be something you just come to, look good and walk out. I wanted you to take something from the experience, have a good time and want to stick around for a while, which everyone did. The point of the presentation was to present different up-and-coming designers that I showcase on my website. I was definitely inspired by different artists that I brought in. I think they did a tremendous job with what they did—color therapy. We had so many talented people there. It was an amazing night. It was everything I imagined, from the balloons to the photo booth, to the people who came out and supported me. I was extremely happy with the outcome“.
On her brand:
“AngelaIAM.com came about because there are so many different elements of me, and I like to share with people who follow me, so I needed a home for all of it, to be able to sell these products. So people could get their hands on the things that I wear or the products that I like. It’s kind of like a boutique“.
