Meet Melanie Guess of Oshun Couture

Today we’d like to introduce you to Melanie Guess.

Melanie, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Before I got into the fashion world, I was working in the medical field. While in that field, I realized it wasn’t for me. I wanted a way out so I started talking to my friends about starting a business. I knew I wanted a boutique but I didn’t know the “how”. After countless hours of research, I finally figured out how to turn my dream into reality. When I took the first step, I told myself I will not look back. Shortly after, I gave birth to my baby girl and left the medical field. Giving that opportunity, I was able to focus on my family and business. That’s how I got here today.

Has it been a smooth road?
No, it has not been a smooth road. In fact, my father told me, “anything that comes easy isn’t worth having”. I believe I been through the same struggles as any business owner. First, financing was a struggle because everything within Oshun Couture is paid for out of pocket. It was also a struggle to get people to know who I am and what my brand has to offer. Nothing has been easy but I grew and is still growing.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Oshun Couture story. Tell us more about the business.
Oshun Couture is an online boutique that specializes in women’s clothing. We also provide same-day delivery to all of Miami-Dade & Broward County. I like to look at Oshun Couture as the Amazon of women’s clothing.

I’m most proud of the professionalism I provide to my customers. Giving outstanding customer service is a must because that’s how the world will view the company. I’m proud to provide show-stopping high-quality fashion to all women. I’m also proud to be your #1 fashion style house.

What sets Oshun Couture aside is I provide everyday wear. My clothing can be worn to work, church, brunch, at home, a night on the town, or any event. My focus is not just on one set of clothing but a variety, so I can provide things for any occasion. I also have all new collections called “The Birthday Girl Collection,” which is designed to provide a beautiful piece to turn heads on your birthday.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In the next 5-10 years later, I see the fashion world continuously expanding. Fashion will forever be there and people will always need clothing. And I believe the more modest looks will make its way back to the forefront.
