I am an accessory junkie and always looking for the hottest pieces. Well with that being stated, I would like to introduce Amber Kessee of POParazzi. This girl is a beast, actually a true Barbie, when it comes to accessories so I had a chance to chat with her and it goes a lil something like this:
KD: Where'd you come up with the name POParazzi? And why'd you start this business?
AK: I thought of the name b/c every time I rocked a pair they created so much attention, it reminded me of the paparazzi swarming around celebs. However, I wanted to spell it different, my mother gave me POP because the earrings literally stand out. I started making earrings for myself; my friends fell in love with them, so they were my first clients. It created such a buzz, which allowed me to develop into a brand after receiving positive feedback in the fashion industry. POParazzi has been in business for 1 year.
AK: My collection is featured in LA's largest style house; it's the GO-TO spot for celebrities. I also have friends in the industry that are stylist or managers of artists, they see my product they love it, and they want it on their clients.
KD: Speaking of celebs, besides R&B Singer Ashanti , Kim Zolziak from the Atlanta Housewives, & former MTV host, LaLa Vasquez, who else has been rocking your pieces?
AK: Meagan Good, Brandy Norwood, Tameka Raymond(Usher's ex wife), Claudia Jordan, and Tierra Mari, & most recent, 50 cent "Baby by Me" video staring Kelly Rowland
KD: Where can we find POParazzi Collection?
AK: www.poparazzice.com or Bourgeoisie Shoetique in Harlem, NY, Fierce Boutique in Laguna Beach, CA , & TAGS Boutique- in Symrna,GA (Sidebar yall: TAGS Boutique is owned by Kandi from the group XSCAPE & the newest ATL Housewife)
KD: What's POPPIN for POParazzi for 2010?
<div style="text-align: left;">AK: POParazzi just wrapped for Video Girl movie staring Meagan Good so I'm looking forward to that, working on 2 upcoming reality shows (pilot being filmed now). Also featured in more videos, reality shows, high end magazine publications, and more store locations- I have a lead currently working on placing my collection in Australia . God is good so whatever direction he moves POParazzi, well be the route we'll take.
