Hi I'm Joyce and I'm the founder of Wild Daisy. I started my business at the age of 13 during the summer of '12. I was totally not about the idea of looking for a "real" first job or to make money at all. Instead, I decided to be-dazzle and glue metal studs onto phone cases with some clear nail polish. I was obsessed and made tons of cases for myself, and I was one of those girls who changed their phone case everyday to make their outfits (omg). My friends eventually saw them and wanted to buy some for themselves. I became an undercover bedazzled phone case dealer in my middle school. Soon, I created a small Etsy shop to sell online and not just locally, then moved to my first very own website months later. Several years of bootstrapping and a week long of in-school-suspension later, I came up with the idea of a clothing line. I moved to sunny San Diego, California the summer before my freshman year of high school and immediately got my own office and warehouse to store the brand new clothing line, along with shoes, swim, jewelry, and of course, phone cases. I wasn't thinking about a career or college or anything, that summer changed my life because it was then that I found something I loved doing. It was meant to be more than just a side hobby. I wanted Wild Daisy to be big.
Today, Wild Daisy is known as an independent clothing company that I now run in its very own office and warehouse. We design clothes for people like you. I always get asked where I get my inspiration from and I just answer with "LIFE." That's what Wild Daisy is - my life in designs. If there's anything I've learned, it's that you can't quit just because you or someone else thinks you can't do it. You'll never know if you don't try. Like, let's be real… If you would have told me two or three years ago that my own clothing brand would be sold to people across the entire globe and worn by famous celebrities, or that I would have hundreds of thousands of people following me online, I would have thought you were crazy. It sounds cliché, but I mean, how could I have known any of this was gonna happen? It just proves that anything is possible.
In God we Trust.
