Brooke Hussey and Lindsey Borek, both mothers of two, opened a new local clothing business last November, and are working on their new spring and summer line when they’re not busy with their careers and families. Starting out as a pet project, they’ve poured hours into the endeavor and have been blown away by the support.
“It’s amazing, the support is unreal. I would say people in our community, you don’t realize just how supportive it is until you’re business is being supported itself. We’ve always supported local businesses and to see the support now is great,” Hussey said.
The reason Hussey and Borek have been successful so far, Borek said, is the brand they’ve created and the quality, the experience, and the look and feel.
“Everything we’ve made is intentional and exactly how we wanted it to be,” said Borek.
On women business owners in Dawson Creek: “It’s amazing how many women are in business in our small community and surrounding area. We look forward to working with them all and supporting them in their journey,” said Hussey.
“There’s power in numbers, and seeing them do amazing things has really helped us. Just watching other women do business and seeing the barriers they hurdle has been amazing. It’s great to see and it’s so cool that we get to be a part of this,” Borek said.
