What started as two t-shirts has turned into one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands appeasing to women, men, and kids. Founder, Milan Harris, is a popular Philly native through and through turning her dreams into reality. This year marked Milano’s 10-year business anniversary, and Grind Pretty was just as elated to help celebrate such a huge accomplishment right in our home city of Atlanta, Ga.

This past weekend kicked off with Milano’s annual fashion experience consisting of photo ops, tasty cocktails, exclusive discounted shopping, and of course FASHION. Milano’s runway looks showcased their signature varsity jacket available in several colors, cargo tailoring, a never-before-seen floral collection
and so much more. If that wasn’t enough, we caught some popular faces down the runway including the McClure Twins, Rich Homie Quan, and Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr, and viral ballerina Jewel Ellis. The following night, Harris hosted a sophisticated black-tie gala bringing together her team, supporters, and friends for a special social occasion. The room was filled with laughter and dancing the entire night, and an impromptu performance by Rich Homie Quan. In true Milano fashion, guests were dressed to impress also sharing throughout the night their respect and appreciation along the 10 years of Milano’s reign.

“If I can do it, you can too. Everyone doesn’t have to be an entrepreneur, but whatever that dream is you have-chase it” remarks Harris. It’s true -Dreams start as an imaginative thought until you decide to make it something more. No matter
where or how you start, the goal is to keep running even when hurdles get in your way. It’s about making your own mark and staying true to you! Harris is the epitome of grinding pretty in her own fashionable way, and we were honored to witness greatness in the making. The dream continues.

Where do I even begin to describe the genius and creativity of Academy Award winning costume designer Ruth Carter! Every time I have painted her face, just being in her presence inspires me. Witnessing the wonderful work she’s done from numerous Spike Lee films, Amistad, and of course her amazing work in Black Panther movies to visual art just laying around her home. Hearing Ruth’s story was so inspiring. Hearing about her upbringing, an HBCU graduate, and how she navigated through her career. More importantly, how she knew that she was destined for greatness. How she manifested that through amazing storytelling and creativity. She’s paved a way for many others to follow and has set the bar high! There are so many things to admire and I’m truly honored to share this interview!

Though attending many higher education institutions is a great accomplishment, there’s something special ingrained in HBCUs that provides a level of confidence and perseverance that in my opinion is unmatched. As a woman of color entrepreneur, it hasn’t been easy to stay afloat, especially within the past couple of years. Per the New York Fed, Black businesses experienced the most acute decline during the pandemic, with a 41% drop. Latinx business owners fell by 32% and Asian business owners dropped by 26%. Though we are making strides, the access to capital for minority women is still in the single digits percentile! But with many of us who attended HBCUs, we don’t give up!
