Designer Spotlight: Wish Supply Co.
This month we’d like to introduce you to Cullen Travers, founder of Wish Supply Co. The budding brand produces beautiful leather accessories with a key focus on giving back.
1.Tell us a about your background as a designer.
I went to school for Fashion Design at the University of Cincinnati in their DAAP program. I have worked in the fashion industry for over six years. My passion has always been tied to color, texture and the way fashion can emotionally affect you.
2.What made you decide to venture out on your own and leave the corporate world?
I haven’t left the corporate world but this is definitely mine and my husband’s HUGE side hustle. I have always loved to create and I have been inspired by the entire design process from concept to final product. Having my own company allows me to completely develop my vision and challenges me to figure out how to keep it afloat!
3.What is the best part about owning your own business?
The best part is leading the vision of Wish Supply Co. This big vision I have in my head, I am able to work towards executing my end goals. It is empowering because I am making decisions that make a direct impact on Wish Supply Co. I love being a creative mind but also love being business savvy. It challenges me to think differently and explore what success looks likes.
