Designers

Charrisse Roberson: I've been a professional fashion designer for over 25 years, I created Gettwisted Designs in 1997 where I designed wedding dresses, Prom Dresses, did alterations & recreations. I've done stylist work and fashion show productions. I knew that I wanted to create more and do more so I went on to create 2Twist Bows where you have 2 bow ties for the price of one. Then my son Carl'Drail and I launched the online store in 2019. One of most proudest moments, because I've gone a long way from selling clothes from home to selling online.

Carl'Drail Cannon: When I took on the responsibility of COO of So'Custom Bows & Tiez, I was still in Graduate school getting my dual master's in Architecture and Business Administration. Fashion has always been a part of me and inspired me to be whoever I wanted to be while looking fashionable. I always thought I had to become just an architect, but watching mom venture into various aspects of her career; I figured why can't I.
