Meet Giovanny Sims of “Vann Sims” in North Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Giovanny Sims.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Throughout childhood, as a creative, I’ve always looked for mediums to express myself through. I started through making music, then that opened doors to many other outlets for me. I found that there is a space in the world to do each of the things I love; art, fashion, photography, and music. At first, I tried to find a market in the world where these were all combined, but I soon realized that the only way for me to find one would be for me to make my own. That’s when I became Vann Sims.

Has it been a smooth road?
There is no such thing as a smooth road, and if there is I wouldn’t take it. The hurdles that I needed to jump over have only made me a stronger, patient, determined, smarter, and passionate individual. Of course, there have been doubts along the way and points where I asked myself, “Is it worth it?”, but those were the moments where I needed to work the hardest. One of the things that I had to overcome early was staying consistent and moving at my own pace. I would always look at others who I knew didn’t work as hard as they shined, while I would stay stagnant at certain points. I learned that everyone starts somewhere, and for me, with the drive that I have within me, it was just a matter of time; I just had to be PATIENT. I’m still early in my story, but the world will soon see me for who I am.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Vann Sims story. Tell us more about it.
Vann Sims is a fashion brand that combines music, art, and photography in order to uniquely capture the vision of yours truly. My goal with each collection I release is to invoke a certain stigma, which represents a part of my personality. I’d say I am most proud of the frame that I have built around this brand, which really allows me to focus more on being a creative without having to worry about thinking of marketing ideas, etc. What sets me apart from other fashion brands is that each collection I drop comes with a certain feeling and emotion that my supporters become drawn towards. It also allows each of my supporters to carry apart of me with them, so that when they wear my pieces, they are, in a sense, Vann Sims.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is the point in which the hardest part of the process is coming up with ideas and just being a creative. At this point, I have a million ideas, but sometimes without the means to get them done. When I can come up with an idea and do it without having to worry about how I will get it done financially, socially, or time-wise, that is what I consider successful. Of course, there will be some who like my brand and some who don’t, so I will never let others judge my success, but as long as I have one supporter who loves me for all my work, I am content.
