LR- What do you think about fashion in Miami?
“Fashion in Miami is very particular, has its own style because the city is located on the southeast coast of the Atlantic, with warm weather almost all year-round. It was considered just a tourist place for a very long time, and then the city grew up into a cosmopolitan city,” added Sam. “I think the development of the fashion industry in this city is very small; those who live here, we grasp fashion adding a look of semi-formal beach that characterizes us, because our people do not meet much formality when they are going to get dress, creating the very popular look called ‘MIAMI STYLE,’ said Sam.
LR- How many jobs does your company provide every year for our people in Miami?
“Depending on the season, we can work with10 to 15 permanent staff, in addition to sewing contracted. “Fashion Koncept” also hires photographers, stylists, models, adding a string of not only employees, but also a great talent development nationally and internationally,” said Samy. “For example in a photo shoot, we hire 10 to 15 people for a period of 5 hours. “Fashion Koncept” always holds 4 to 5 photo-shoots a week.”
LR- Our country is trying to rescue the economy making more products here in USA; are your designs “Made in USA?”
“The workforce in the United States has always been expensive. In these times of crisis, we are trying to rescue the economy through job opportunities and employment,” added Sam. “All my work is done here in the United States; I am always looking for opportunities for my company – these opportunities of course, create jobs.
LR- Could you define your mission with just 3 words?
“Create, teach, and give,” said Samy.
