We’re excited to officially announce the winner of our “Grand For Your Brand” contest, Takiyah J. Thomas – owner of Ja De’van Fashion Designs & Alterations, LLC. The aspiring (and talented) fashion designer will receive $1,000 to help grow her brand.
“It has long been a dream of mine to own a boutique. I come from a long line of seamstresses and entrepreneurs, and I guess you can say owning my own business is ‘meant to be.’ For the past few years, I’ve been branding my business, building a customer base and investing in supplies,” Thomas said. “I currently run my business from home and, after proper planning, intend to open a storefront. The support I’ve received throughout this contest from family, friends and clients has motivated me to expedite my planning.”
Thomas plans to use the grand prize funds to purchase a second body form (mannequin), reorder garment labels and begin establishing business credit through a secure credit line.
“While $1,000 won’t buy me my storefront, I am so grateful for what I’ll be able to accomplish with the additional funds; it brings me one step closer to my ultimate goal. Thank you, Silver Rock Funding!”

We’d also like to thank the finalists and everyone else who participated – it was fun reviewing all the unique business ventures and “getting to know” the ambitious business owners/entrepreneurs.
