CP: What is your name? 
LO: Lisa Opie

CP: What do you do and how did you come up with your clothing line.
LO: I stumbled into my company when I started making my own clothes to model at photoshoots. My friends would see the pictures and ask me where I got my bikinis. When I told them I made it, they
started buying handmade bikinis from me and it got to the point where I couldn't keep up with my orders so I decided to incorporate a line. I am now getting my bikinis manufactured and have an online store! 

CP: Who inspired you to be in Fashion/Modeling? 
LO: I've always wanted to be a model, so I worked very hard to become a successful model despite my height. After working with many designers, I was inspired to design clothes for myself to model! I still like making my own clothes because I create the exact look that I want without searching through stores for hours! 

CP:  What advice would you give to an aspiring designer or model?
LO:  NEVER give up, and work hard!! You have to start somewhere, which means being an extra in a movie or an unpaid shoot but it is worth it in the end. A humble attitude is very important in the industry. Nobody is better than anyone else! 

CP:  If there were one thing that you can take back in your life on how became successful, what would that be?
LO:  I wish I took on more internships!

CP: In your own words what does NOTORIOUS mean to you? 
LO: Fearless and bold 

CP:  Describe your style? 
LO: I'm a pageant girl so I love girly things! Lately I have been obsessed with tribal prints, and in outfit I make sure I wear one tight-fitting item and one loose-fitting item! 

CP:  What goals do you want to accomplish with your business? 
LO: I would love to see my designs on every beach! 

CP:  What is your latest work?
LO:  I am working on my collections for 2014! I can't say what they are yet, but they are going to be incredible!
