Instilling self-confidence and achievement in the Tri-State area and beyond, Empowered Apparel has been serving others with apparel to inspire since December of 2015.
Empowered Apparel is a small business located in Cincinnati that focuses on positive messages through trendy apparel. “I’ve always had the desire to be the owner of a successful business,” Lamon Kinebrew says. “Owning and operating your own business gives a person the opportunity to use his/hers gifts and talents freely.”
“The idea behind my brand Empowered Apparel represents strength, power, and authority,” Kinebrew says. “All of humanity, whether people are aware of it or not, have the strength-mentally to continue forward in life during those tough times, the power- to conquer challenges or any giants both physically/figuratively that people may face in their life, and the authority- to rule over your individual life and achieve all goals that are set in place.”
Kinebrew feels personally empowered as the entrepreneur behind Empowered Apparel, as empowerment is the premise the company was founded upon. “We all must know, believe, and have confidence that you are empowered and equipped to go forward in life prospering and succeeding.”
The apparel and accessories are designed with either the logo of a lion, the words “Empowered Apparel,” or both featured somewhere on the garment.
“My lion logo is a symbol of self confidence, that all people were born with,” Kinebrew says. “The lion is a dominant animal with a great reputation of knowing, believing, and caring itself with confidence in its fullness. The lion runs, walks, eat, roar, and lives in courage and confidence. We, as people, are equipped with that same attribute as the lion.”
In addition to t-shirts, customers can purchase men’s polo style embroidery casual shirts, and also sweatshirts as well as hats in the fall and winter seasons. Empowered Apparel can be purchased by reaching out through email, on their Facebook page, or by phone. They are excited to announce that an online store will be coming soon to shop all of their items.
With Black Lives Matter movements drumming up positive change around the country, Empowered Apparel strives to create positivity in the community through clothing.
“It’s important to support black owned businesses because its helps keep our local economy growing,” Kinebrew says. “It also display and show what the American dream is all about in this land of opportunity.”
