My name is Collisa Bishop a mother to a handsome almost three years old toddler and wife to an amazing husband. I’m originally from Kingston, Jamaica but now reside in Canada. What led me to start my own business? The love for fashion and the fashion industry and I was in constant search for unique fashion pieces that I wasn’t ﬁnding within Canada, my search would lead me outside of Canada. I did some research and found out that other women in Canada were having the same issues, I wanted to change that and try to minimize cross border shopping, so I decided to start TrendyColly. I also always dared to be different, (trendsetter lol) I like being admired and asked where did you get that? !
I would say I grew up in the fashion industry, my mother and two of her sisters are seamstresses and two of my uncles were tailors. I remember when it was back to school time in Jamaica and my mom had all those uniforms to make, she would make me sew the hems and the buttons on the uniform and cut any loose threads. I was always intrigued by the ﬁnish products. She always joked that I wouldn’t come and learn to cut from a pattern but I was more interested in the outcome than the process lol. !
Believe in yourself and your brand. Keep knocking on all the doors until one is open and never give up. It may seem hard at ﬁrst but always put your best effort in it. Better to try and fail than to never try at all!
