Ariana’s Apparel is a fresh and fun fashion line started by savvy ‘teenpreneur’ Ariana Foster. The 16 year old Detroit native has always had her own unique style and a love for fashion. In June 2015, she decided to officially launch her brand, not only as a business, but also as a way to serve and spotlight her local community. “Detroit is actually such a glorious city with interesting history that will amaze people when they hear about it,” she says.
Ariana’s Apparel creates eye catching t-shirts, tank tops and even coffee mugs. The company is on a mission to fashionably show the softer side of the Motor City, though Ariana admits that “The D, it Ain’t for Everybody,” which is the brands most featured phrases.
Ariana is exceptionally driven, passionate and serious about uplifting the world around her. When she’s not heading up her company, she volunteers with a non-profit organization, Women Empowering Women of Michigan, where she assists with various outreach efforts such as distributing winter coats to families in need and mentoring other youth. Since launching her company, Ariana has already donated some of the earnings to groups that support breast cancer research.
Ariana is currently working on taking her company to the next level which includes expanding her product line and getting her items into stores. This young visionary is proof that diligence and perseverance pays off and she hopes to inspire other teens to launch the businesses of their dreams as well.
