Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I always have had the idea to start my own business in fashion from the time I can remember. It has always been a dream of mine and finally, in 2017, I got the courage to move forward with my idea and fulfill my lifelong dream of establishing my own brand and business.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
One of the most interesting things that happened to the brand and it gave me the energy to go forward stronger was winning the “German Design Award Special 2019”. It was such an honor to have your design recognized by one of the world’s leading and prestigious competence centers for design.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
A piece of advice that I can give people who are at the beginning of their way is that this path is not an easy one and the competition is really high and they do really need to have thick skin to survive and thrive. However, this should never stop them from perusing their dreams and visions. Just keep in mind that hard work, innovation, and persistence will eventually pay off.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
There have been so many people that have inspired and supported me all along and to name one person would not be really easy. But if I have to name someone, that would be without a doubt my husband who has been supporting me through ups and downs in this journey. He has always been supportive and an ear for my stories and above all a caring consultant for the times that I am restless and even maybe hopeless. I can say, he truly kept me going.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
It is my dream to bring joy and happiness through my work to the world. I believe that I have been fortunate enough to be able to establish my own brand and within the brand, I always try to do the right things, make the right moves to be sustainable and to avoid harming the nature and environment. However, I feel that this in itself is not enough and I would like to give more to the community and the world that is the source of my inspiration. I firmly believe in a united world and to have such a world everybody has to help and give something back. Everybody has to play their parts to make the world a better place. And Utmon Es Pour Paris always endeavors to do its part as much as it is possible.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“You just can’t let life happen to you, you have to make life happen”, (Idowu Koyenikan) Well, I believe this quote sums up all I want to say. I could have let the difficulties stop me, but I wanted to do something with my life, something that I can pass on to the community. So I made the move to make my dreams reality.
How can our readers follow you on social media?
That is a good question. I am trying to have a nice presence on social media platforms and to use my platform to reach people and inspire them as much as I can and of course to be inspired by successful people. I am really active on Instagram and you can find my page by searching my name or you can easily type erzsebet_wagner and there I am 🙂
