Have you ever wondered why your styling career is not working out? Or better still, have you ever wanted to hear of a real-life story of “from grass to grace”? Having been born and brought up in Detroit, Ebony Brown is a Celebrity stylist who has had tremendous challenges before eventually having a breakthrough in her career and life. Her life hasn’t been a walk in the park as she had to step over crackheads to go to school and stand in food stamp lines just like any ordinary African-American girl. Ebony didn’t grow up in Hollywood or have any entertainment connections, and at some point, in life, her parents were on drugs and later within the federal prison system. She is indeed a force to reckon with as she stood against all these odds to be the admirable industrious woman she is today. She didn’t give up on her dreams, and her resilience and determination helped her rough up all the challenges and eventually move to New York to become a songwriter. As a writer, Ebony Brown excelled hugely. Her success is unsurprising given that she has been writing since she was a child and was even published when she was only five years old. Ebony’s passion is truly admirable.

In the words of Lupita Nyong’o, “No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid.” Ebony’s dream was indeed valid as she came a long way before starting to see the fruits of her labor. Her successes are hard-earned, and the efforts that she has put in place to propel her career to greater heights are unsurmountable. For a lady, Ebony is a strong proponent in the respective industry, and her passion for whatever she puts her mind to is unquestionable. While in New York working with artists, the execs would ask her to style the clients, but she turned the offer down for three years. Realizing that she might be sitting on her blessings, she pursued fashion styling. This was the start of her success in the fashion styling industry. As a costume designer, her first client became Faith Evans, a woman she was writing songs with as a songwriter. After realizing that all the fashion industry needed was passion, resilience, hard work, and commitment, she later joined The Costume Design Union and even started working with world-class brands like McDonald’s, Nike, Adidas, Ford, just to mention a few.

One may think that Ebony’s struggles ended when she had a breakthrough in the songwriting and fashion designing industry. Far from it, Ebony Brown had to deal with pay inequalities between black and white stylists. Even amid a racially charged society, Ebony fought hard to get better pay. Her resilience and push for better pay finally paid off when she started getting better pay. While gaining popularity in the fashion styling and design industry is complex without proper connection, Ebony Brown is living proof that it is possible to pursue dreams and become among the most successful people only seen on tv. Ebony’s works speak for themselves. She has had some significant accomplishments, including being notified by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the songs that she had written with Faith and had Notorious B.I.G listed. Ebony’s success has seen her work for Beyonce’s mother, Mrs. Tina Knowles Lawson. She’s also worked with notable personalities in the entertainment world like Halsey, Faith Evans, Camilla Cabello, Nicole Scherzinger, Britney Spears, Miguel, Young Thug, Kanye West, Sanaa Lathan, Syd the Kid, Kali Hawk, Maya Lynne Robinson, and George Lopez.

To inspire young and talented fashion stylists, Ebony came up with an online course known as the Celebrity Style Academy (CSA). With CSA, Ebony aims at teaching young vision-oriented individuals the do and don’ts in the fashion styling industry as well as helping others grow to the levels that she has produced. Ebony’s online course under CSA also aims at teaching young talented stylists how to earn themselves a promising working career in the industry and become among the best. In the words of Ebony, “It is never too late to start pursuing goals in life. “The struggles that Ebony Brown has gone through will be instrumental in shaping the thinking of young talented stylists to be resilient and committed to their goals in life. Ebony’s online course will bridge the gap between poverty and success for young talented fashion stylists and designers. Her commitment to changing the fashion industry shows the kind of person, a leader, and a role model. Coming up with something is one thing, but working hard to make that dream and vision into a reality can be the hardest thing to endure. Ebony continuously presents new creations, updates, and detailed work through her websites, www.ebonybrownstyle.com and www.fashionbyfearless.com. Furthermore, any and all updates of Ebony’s life can be seen by the masses on her bolstering and invigorating Instagram handle, @ebonybrownstyle. Ebony’s story is truly an inspiration to fashion stylists or songwriters and other young entrepreneurs in different industries.

It is evident that a person’s background does not define who they become in life but the little effort they put in to endure challenges and become successful. Each person belongs. The story of Ebony is a trustworthy source of inspiration to young talented stylists. Ebony’s success can hugely be attributed to the fact that she never took no for an answer and never gave up on all her aspirations in life. Anyone can become all that they aspire to become. Ebony’s success journey is admirable and inspiring because no matter where one comes from, all dreams are valid.

Online marketplace Temu aims to redefine shopping and democratize access to affordable and high-quality global products and experiences for every American.

Americans are in for a new shopping experience with the arrival of Temu, a new online marketplace that offers fresh and exciting products across different categories for every lifestyle, hobby, or occasion.

With thousands of new products added daily, Temu will feature a wide range of products at competitive prices from fashion to jewelry, beauty and health, home décor and electronics, and more. Customers can browse a personalized selection of these categories from the app and checkout in a few taps. Exclusive deals, discounts, and vouchers are also widely available and updated daily across the platform.

Launched in September 2022, Temu is the latest addition to a host of successful e-commerce retailers such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and Shein. With the mission of making global products more accessible, and with the challenging presence of an unprecedented economic slowdown in mind for its consumers, the cross-border e-commerce platform aims to empower buyers in their shopping choices, giving them more ways to improve their quality of life.

The shopping site makes its entry into the American market by positioning itself as every American’s go-to destination for all things shopping. Expanding consumer choice in a crowded e-commerce marketplace is among its top priorities. By democratizing high-quality shopping, Temu allows shoppers to enjoy affordable access to the comforts and conveniences of life. 

With only two weeks in operation, the e-commerce site is already being touted as a potential major competitor to e-commerce giants because of its affordable price points and easy, stress-free shopping experience. The Temu app topped the shopping app category on Sept. 17 on the Google Play Store, an early indication of its popularity with consumers.

By drawing on its extensive global supply chain and technology, Temu allows its customers to experience new and exciting products at a much lower price compared to other e-commerce platforms. All products are sourced from a network of top-notch global suppliers cultivated by Temu’s sister company, Pinduoduo. Both companies operate under Nasdaq-listed PDD, which has built up an e-commerce following of close to 900 million active buyers. Pinduoduo works with more than 11 million merchants globally and processed over 61 billion orders in 2021 alone.

“We are fortunate to have access to deep expertise in product sourcing and execution through our sister company,” a Temu spokesperson said in a release. “This stands us in good stead to deliver an unparalleled shopping experience to our customers.”
