Men in Fashion: Maryland's New Entrepreneurs


Times have surely changed if I ponder about the early days of when I was attending universityreminiscent of only having to be concerned about academics, attendance, or having a few assignments would seem quite boring these days, especially when some youth of today are as innovative and technologically inclined as any seasoned CEO might be.

With an evolving industry like fashion, being tenacious, resourceful, and truly passionate can aid one in any economic climate. And new on-line boutique owners Antwan Jones and Chet Robinson are two men in fashion who know firsthand about using their passion to start a business from the ground up. Their new on-line shop, TRVISTIC [Truh-Vih-stik] is quickly becoming a must-stop and browse cyber destination! The inspiring duo have taken what was once a mere business concept and successfully executed their vision into a viable reality.

I sat down to chat with the Baltimore, Maryland-based gents (who are both in their early twenties) to talk about their new venture and the future of their on-line shop.

Just nearly three months old and initially called the Iconic Boutique, Trvistic was born. So what does this Trvisitc word actually signify? "It's a made-up word and centered around all of the qualities of fashion ... it's artistic, unique, bold, and stood out to me, said Jones."  Hhmm ... catchy word with an interesting sound of pizazz ... Well, it works!

Robinson, co-owner and fashion merchandiser of the shop credits Jones for being the master force and energy driver behind Trvistic's business. But, the continuing excellence of Trvisitic definitely has proven that having a solid trustworthy partner is essential to the growth of their business.

The store has already carried known brands such as Whitney Eve, Amanda Christine, and Hellz Bellz, amongst many others. However, the boutique also caters to the emerging designer and actively supports local and independent talent.

From jewellery to party dresses, Trvistic offers handpicked fashion and beauty merchandise (with worldwide shipping), and all ranging from $20-90. You'll find edgy items such as the Monet inspired shawl jacket, King Kong spiked earrings, and even Laruicci Jewellery. The eye-hooking affordability of Trvistic's selections will certainly keep you staying current in playful fashion! 

These entrepreneurs carefully choose labels that they feel share an adoration of providing diverse products for the modern woman. "We're open to feedback ... and designers can contact me to collaborate with different ideas," said Robinson.  For Jones and Robinson the dream may have only begun, however they're currently working on expanding Trvisitic by adding men's wear and children's wear to the genres of the boutique very soon.

Something tells me by the time of their collegiate commencement these two may in fact be on the rise in a few other territories as well.
