Meet Jazmine Davis

October 11, 2018

 

 

High heels are gorgeous, but they're so painful to wear! After spending a fortune on a pair of shoes that look good but bring nothing but pain, Jazmine Davis decided something had to be done for the sake of ankles everywhere. She started production for a line of vegan, eco-friendly shoes that are stylish and most importantly comfortable to wear by combining shock-absorbent gel and memory foam. But Jazmine's dream has an even deeper cause. She wants to donate a portion of her profit to helping young girls who have lost both parents just as she did by providing them financial resources from therapy to everyday living expenses. Jazmine hit a couple of bumps in the beginning, mostly funding but also finding the right people to make contracts with. "I think my problem was that I thought it was taking so long, so anybody who said yes (to a business deal) I just jumped on it without researching their talent." Jazmine said "A lot of money and time was wasted doing that. I didn’t realize my own ability of what I could do on my own. My lesson learned would be utilizing the free and cheapest resources first. They are out there, you just have to find them." Street Entrepreneurs in helping Jazmine find her footing. "Now I am more aware of my product and what I am doing." Jazmine hopes to one day see her brand sold in every Nordstrom in the country, and to hold the biggest fashion show featuring shoes in New York. Jazmine has worked hard to manufacture and promote her product and is finally starting to see the fruits of her labor.
