Two years ago Breanna Twiggs took a leap of faith when she decided to leave her regular 9 to 5 job and put all her time, effort, and energy into launching her clothing brand, Nine Lamarca. Last weekend Twiggs came closer to making her brand a household name when she opened her first storefront in Charlotte.

Before she decided to bet on herself, Twiggs, who is a native of Winston-Salem, worked at several different bars and restaurants. She said although that was her reality at the time, she always had dreams of something more. In 2020, after she was fired, Twiggs said she took that leap of faith and never looked back.

“I always knew I wanted my own clothing line,” said Twiggs when discussing how Nine Lamarca got started.

Twiggs said she knew she made the right decision to bet on herself  the day Nine Lamarca launched. Within hours of becoming available to the public,  the Nine Lamarca t-shirt sold out.

“I knew I had something the first day we dropped my t-shirts and the brand blew up the same day,” Twiggs said.

Despite having a few obstacles along the way, Twiggs has continued to strive toward her goal and now Nine Larmaca is a streetwear brand that is recognized throughout the country. With the physical store in Charlotte, customers can walk in and buy the latest Nine Lamarca designs without the hassle of dealing with shipping.

“I always wanted a storefront or a warehouse,” Twiggs said. “I saw the storefront I have about a year ago, but someone else got it before I could, but a few months later it became available and I went for it.”

Although she wouldn’t reveal what’s next for Nine Lamarca, Twiggs said we should expect something big. “There’s a lot of things I’m working on. What’s next is going to be really big for us, but we’ll have to cross that bridge when we get there … I like to move in silence,” Twiggs laughed.

Twiggs said what has kept her going is her belief in God and her determination to make it. “I tell people all the time who are looking to start a business, never give up, control your emotions, and pray,” Twiggs added.

“Keep God first and everything else will fall into place.”
