FROM LAID OFF WORKER TO FASHION DESIGNER!

 

When things got tough for Ricky Carr back in December after being laid off from an engineering firm…he did what he knew best…he got creative.

Carr says, “went from there and went back into school trying to get back into the engineering field I could not find a job…I made a skirt instead.”

Carr created a dashiki skirt for his wife Stephanie Carr who’s also a Fort Bend county prosecutor. She was so proud she posted it on Facebook and then….

“He kind of put it out there just testing the waters and things…I said we really have something here,” says Stephanie.

Ricky and Stephanie have been working non-stop to keep up with the orders. They also decided to expand Ricky’s newly discovered clothing line called Seventy Seven by Ricky Carr. There are now 6 designs.

Stephanie is once again very proud of her husband whom she married while he was a mail clerk…He worked his way up to the engineering firm and now his own clothing line – selling like hot cakes.
