Today we’d like to introduce you to Brydric Wright.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Growing up, I enjoyed sketching my favorite comic heroes, the X-Men. Little did I know, my fascination was more on their costumes, not special powers. By the time, I was a senior in high school, the only thing I focused on was designing clothes.
In 2008 I moved to Dallas with the determination of becoming a fashion designer. I began studying fashion design at The Art Institute of Dallas and transitioned to Wade College where I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in merchandising and design. During my collegiate career, I produced my clothing line all while working two jobs, and pursuing every opportunity to work in the fashion industry.
My clothing line, Five Eleven Collection stems from my birth date, May 11. My purpose with the line is to ignite self-confidence and enhance individuality. Free spirits come to me for a modern, boho-chic look. No matter the occasion, we want to be a part of your journey.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Hell, no (lol)! Life after college was a struggle, specifically finding a career to support both my lifestyle and creativity. Unfortunately, this delayed me from producing my collection for years but never did my struggle stop me from connecting/working with clients. This experience definitely taught me that income generates from clients, not collections.
Please tell us about Five Eleven Collection.
Five Eleven Collection provides custom apparel, styling, and alterations. The collection specializes in designing bohemian ready-to-wear for all free spirits. My proudest moment was showing my collection in The Pin Show.
What sets my line apart from others is paying attention to the fit and functionality of the garment to ensure that you are enhancing the outfit; not the other way around.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
So many to choose from, but I would say spending time with my dad fishing. We would get up as early as 4 or 5 a.m. to drive to random ponds and fish for hours. I’d like to think that those moments of waiting for “the big catch” taught me to work hard and be patient for what is to come. As I’m currently building my clothing brand, I am talking to God, preparing for my big catch.
