We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Smith and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my brands success is Continuing to keep my brand fresh, keep returning customers and new customers wondering what the brand will do next.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m most proud and excited about how myself and my client can have one on one consultations to come up with a custom design made just for them. I got to where I am today by watching trends and putting a twist on them and making them my on, I over came the challenges of staying on trend while adding our twist by letting the client know they will be a showstopper in our garment, lessons I’ve learned along the way is you can’t make everyone happy, not everyone will love your brand like you do, I would like the world to know that SUSIEMANIA is a brand that is evolving and will assure each customer that purchases a custom garment will stand out wherever they go.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my bestfriend was in town for the week, we would visit deep ellum, during the week in the daytime, it’s the best time to explore deep Ellum due to crowds, we would choose a different place each day! Biscuit bar, punch bowl social, serious pizza, crab station, select start, and for night life on the weekend we would go for either club dada, stirr, or stars & spirits


The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to thank my family and friends, simply because they motivate me to know that the sky is the limit, that anything is possible and if at first I don’t succeed try again!! And nothing can change what’s meant for me.
