The best way to gain support is to firstly believe in yourself and in your idea. This what my idea of My Roial Ears made me do.
I will firstly like to start this blog post thanking God because He is the one that blesses and continues to see me through. No other way I could have done My Roial Ears will out him and I have seen God’s hands thoroughly within the brand. Knowing that by trusting in Him I will continue to see his profound Glory.
From my our last blog post I mentioned that My Roial Ears was pre-launched in 2018 and from it being my first ever business. I had no idea how to run I was going to generate it but held on strong to submitting the idea. I saw beauty, wealth and class within the identity that wore earrings and know that it was a message to hold on to.

One of my very first inspirations were taken from Dolce & Gabbana fall 2013 read to wear collection the was influenced by the Art of Mosaic making in Sicily’s Cathedral. Fell in love the brands accessorise and found a meaningful purpose in its beauty, creativity, craft, colours and how the models carried it. Dolce & Gabbana’s spring summer 2019 and Alta Moda 2017- FW 2018-18 shows all give me a great push to knew and welcome My Roial Ears.

This inspiration opened up so many to looking in to and helped me to know that Royalty was the main. My Roial Ears was first spelt correctly as in My Royal Ear but due to the sonority of the Queen it was changed to Roial. Roial an archaic spelling and an old French word for Royal.
One of my key inspiration also streamed during Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding in 2018. Royal weddings have always been an amazement and from watching Prince Charles and Princess Dania as a child to Prince William and Kate’s and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s. An excitement and wonder have always been and it is now all in My Roial Ears Bridal Collection.

In the search to research more about the types of earring and headpieces for My Roial Ears Bridal. Attending wedding shows to speak and network with bridal vendor was what I did. From this I came across Cynthia Grafton-Holt, an incredible bridal designer and owner of Ui OMadam Bridal ATRLIER. Her work was what I saw and fell in love with from the catwalk at the show bridal show and I could not wait but to ask her for help with my very first photoshoot for the brand. Surprisingly she accepted to help me with the shoot and even though there were some trails and errors on the day of the shoot. Her support has remain until now.
