Writing is something I’ve always loved to do, and up dating our Ambush Apparel blog was something I always took great interest in. But as I was looking over our website and blog as I often do, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of guilt and abandonment.
In a recent workshop in Toronto at The Remix Project an all star panellist of music bloggers sat down to discuss their secrets to success. Each and everyone of these panellists has their own website/blog and I have great admiration towards them & their hustle. These panellist included Karla Moy – HustleGRL.com, Karen Civil – KarenCivil.com, LowKey – YouHeardThatnew.com & Mecca from 2dopeboyz.com. Now, although these websites are mainly music oriented it refreshed my memory and made me remember that the same hustle, drive and determination can be put into play regardless the topic you’re talking about. So with out further ado, let me get into the meat of this post.
Since our Spring Summer 12 collection launch mid April, we received tremendous amounts of love from numerous websites and blogs both big and small. Believe me when I say, all interweb love is madly appreciated and definitely does not go unnoticed.
With that said, there were a few that really grabbed our attention. The 1st being ‘BlogTo’. BlogTo compiled a list of Torontos top 10 fashion start up brands & wouldn’t you know it, Ambush Apparel made the list! A short while after, the website piccsy.com compiled their list of ‘Torontos top 50 designers‘ & again, we made the list! (Relatively high on both lists).
Ambush Apparel is for everyone who believes in dreams! With acknowledgement comes motivation, and with motivation comes success. Click the links to read the posts & be sure to check back to the Ambush Apparel website for more frequent blog updates. Full on engagement from here on in! See you at the top.
BANGBANG! I cant even explain how blessed we feel to have released the newest & possibly one of our most punctual collections to date! The ‘Sophomore’ collection represents our time in the game at two years deep & believe me when I tell you we are not going anywhere. Sticking to what we know best, this season we’re heavy on typography, pop colors & aggressive designs that are sure to stand out from the norm. Our supporters are like family & family grows together.
