They speak about the many challenges they faced on their journey, yet taking the brand to incredible success levels.
Having the “vision” to attain a specific goal is one thing, but to grind each day, hustle, make bold choices, face challenges and overcome them to turn those visions into a beautiful reality is a different thing altogether. To belong to the latter category, individuals need to focus on putting in consistent efforts towards their goals and work around filling in the gap they see in their respective industries. WRLDINVSN’s founders, Nicholas Clark and Marlon Watts serve as one of the best examples of two young founders who believed in their visions to start a clothing brand in New Orleans to serve the growing fashion scene and make robust careers out of it. They have thrived on their passion as creators and lovers of fashion.
However, the insane craze and love that WRLDINVSN has garnered today did not come to them overnight. There were several challenges they faced in taking the brand where it stands today. Speaking on the same, they say that during a trip to Atlanta in 2016, their day began with a flat tire downtown and ended with a car robbery, and all of the WRLDINVSN merchandise and, most of all, Clark’s laptop with his designs, got stolen. This made them question whether they should continue making the brand and walk their own individual paths.
But at the beginning of the next year, they decided to start afresh and bought a new laptop and figured that the brand could be special because of their unique visions. They graduated from Louisiana Tech University and are now working on their brand full-time and also planning to expand the brand to women, children, and activewear.
The two young founders say that they specialize in the message behind the brand and their core values. Not many in their neighborhood in New Orleans owned businesses at their age, and so Nicholas and Marlon decided to be inspirational stories to other budding talents. They are only 25 and are a living testimony that if you trust in your vision, you can make it a reality.
