Christian Culture Clothing: A Shining Example of What Crazy Faith and Dedication Can Do!



I have chosen to write about Treya E., designer and owner of Christian Culture Clothing and Soultre Boutique today, because in watching her run her business, I am able to see how in the short period of time, 2-years to be exact, she has established herself as a well respected clothing designer. Anyone out there reading this right now ought to know, with any new business, it is a daily grind. There are no holidays, sleeping in late, time for depression when things don’t go your way, hanging out with friends who don’t respect your vision or purchases of high-priced items on a whim. My prayer is that this blog encourages you, no matter where you are in the packaging of the gift God has given you. And no matter what, remember if you are persistent and consistent, in due time, you will be rewarded for your faith in yourself and your vision. 

The Beautiful Treya E.

 Like many of you who are subscribed to the blog or visiting with us right now, I met Treya, owner of Christian Culture Clothing and SoultreBoutique, on Facebook. She “LIKED” a post in one of the groups I frequent and once I clicked on her name to get to her page, I immediately fell in love with her designs and recognized her as being a savvy business woman. As you can tell from the photos, some sort of organization has to be behind this business, to give it the high class look of something you would find in a glossy, full-color, magazine. Yes…the women and the men in these pictures are models; real models who are pursuing the modeling career path. Now of course you can create something, and upload your design to Zazzle, but how will it set you apart from the tons of Christian clothing designers who are already out there? You see, this is where the Branding comes in again. Now I am fully aware of the possibility of you not being able to do it B-I-G right now, but please have some sort of plan in place to get there. Write it down!!!!!

Treya E. has been styling hair and beating people’s faces as a makeup artist for 10 years, so it was quite natural for her to want to help her clients have a complete look from head to toe. Treya so deftly delivers this anti-homogeneous look, online and offline, that when it is viewed by a website visitor or passerby, the person will say to themselves, “Wow…that person really has it together.”

Two years ago, in her home, on her down time, Treya started creating purses and handbags and came up with the name Soultre Boutique. With each sell, she was inspired to challenge her own thinking to come up with something unique and popping. Not only was keeping her own ideas fresh, a concern (thinking beyond the current season), but she also wanted to boost the selling of her bags, so she wouldn’t have to depend on word of mouth. Six months ago, after much prayer, Treya came up with the ChristianCulture Clothing line for both men and women. From my understanding, after interviewing her, CCC was born out of crazy faith. According to Treya, “You must VOICE YOUR EXPECTATION and remember, PAIN and OBSTACLES are a part of it all. And oh…major SACRIFICES! I cancelled summer vacation because I am so locked into Grinding now so I can Relax later.”

Treya is blessed to have a close friend who is a professional photographer who can help her achieve the high fashion, colorful look you will find in the images on her FB page. But outside of that, this woman is a naturally gifted, highly economical, marketing guru and go-getter. She highly recommends Fiverr as a site to browse for any and everything you can think of that you may need in your business.

One of the ways in which Treya boosts sales of her product is through participation in Fashion shows. She loves it because it’s free, and her items always get sold on the spot and generate business for the future. Also, she hires herself out as an image consultant and styles entertainers. Of course in styling them, her accessories and clothing are presented as options. Basically, here, she has provided a way for herself to get paid twice (Smiles). On top of all this, Treya has a team of passionate, dedicated interns who she meets with regularly for meetings to impart the knowledge they need to carry the vision. In other words, she’s not afraid to share because she realizes in doing so, an even bigger blessing is bound to come her way in due time.

Of course, like you always hear me talking about, take pictures and post them in Tweets, Instagram and such, Treya is using every free social media site you can think of to keep her name out there. For those of you who are still getting the website in place, please remember, FACEBOOK is respected as a back up to your website, or even a temporary site. Look, even Vogue has their own Facebook page. And they go to great lengths to make sure the pictures are vibrant and the look matches their brand. Our friend Treya has recently taken the Vogue Facebook page model a step further and has started to collage items. CCC Facebook Page.
