My name is Briana DeShields. I began my modeling career in 2015 in Dallas Texas USA, which means i was the crisp age of 24 before i even knew what “style” truly meant.
When i was a teenager, i was 5’11 and 190 lbs. I was styled through hand-me-downs that actually fit and items from the clearance rack at any department store. This is no sob story. I just didn't care. My parents are pretty laid back, and so was I.
On any day you can normally find me in jeans, cowgirl boots and a Solid tank-top. If i'm headed out to lunch or hanging with my girls, I will occasionally pull out my favorite romper or skirt & halter combo. Time is generally a constraint for me so i rarely have time to shop in malls. Shopping at the mall is always more expensive. Online Shopping is usually less time consuming and more affordable plus there is just something completely satiating when coming home to a package from your favorite online boutique (lord knows 3-7 business days can be unmerciful).
I don't consider myself a fashion “guru”, fashionista or top stylist by any means! I’d be the first to state, that i'm a bartender, that plays Model every now and then. But i am here to recommend, consult, share and give my personal perspective on the world of fashion as i tackle my career in the industry.

I met 92seven's owner Angela Stergis for an interview
Angela, why did you decide to open a boutique?
We became boutique owners primarily for the love of fashion. We wanted to see unique and stylish fashion in one place without having to scroll through thousands of pieces.
We are mother and daughter.
What is your favorite part about being fashion designers?
We love to see women being their fiercest self and a good haircut and a banging outfit always seem to bring out a confidence in women.
What were your inspirations for the designs?
The inspiration for our design choice in a single word is BAD Bold Audacious Daring we want women to own their looks. You and I can have on the same outfit but rock it so differently no one would notice.
What is it like working with family ?
Trying of patience...we bump heads a lot but unlike other business relationships you know at the end of the ruckus you’re going to move on and get back to business.
What are your plans for the near future?
Marketing, Marketing and more Marketing...building a brand means building trust and familiarity and it can be very challenging on the World Wide Web when no one knows who you are.
We try to keep it unique and fresh and definitely of high quality we don’t just want to sell clothes we want to build a relationship with our customers.
Where can we find your designs?
you can find us at www.92seven.com or our social media links on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and pinterest.
Thank for the opportunity to interview with you.
