Who is Joshua Paul?

Joshua is a 22 year old business owner, designer and photographer who’s really passionate about making an impact in society.

Why are you an entrepreneur?

It’s a platform which allows me to help people and while helping people I’m making money, which allows me to help more people, it’s like an organic cycle.

When did you realize you’re into fashion and entrepreneurship?

Truthfully, since I was a little baby my mom always made sure my outfits were on point.. I was a stylish kid but really when I was in early elementary school I started dressing myself fitting whatever style I thought looked cool. Same goes for being an entrepreneur, but on such a smaller scale. I remember buying Football Cards and then going to Green Bay Packer practice –  getting their cards signed and going to sell them for $5 dollars a card to friends. But in the last year I would say I’ve been trying to become a professional since I started a company, a clothing brand, Papí Fayo, as some of you might already know.

If you describe your style as a designer, what would it be?

Abstract Progressive Style. I can’t really design all that well so the abstract characters and things come naturally in a sense and with that I try and add a positive message in the clothing.

Is personal style crucial when trying to get more clients?

Yes, I think so, you want to make something the consumer wants, that niche while being practical and something they can identify with.

How is the Universe treating you? Have you read The Secret?

It’s treating me well, I think I’m pretty in tune with myself which allows the Universe to work in my favor. I have not read that book, but I just picked up the book The 4 Agreements and that’s kind of in the same avenue as The Secret.

What are your biggest career-related dreams?

I want to inspire, to be a positive voice for millions. Have I achieved any of my biggest dreams yet? Yes, absolutely even if it’s not at the highest level, I think helping – because you want to help and inspire is a win in itself because it can do wonders for that certain person or people.

Is there any book / event / person that totally changed your point of view of the world, or gave you motivation for pursuing your dream career?

I think every single event has changed my point of view, it’s all been a whirlwind but there has been several people who have changed my life and really let me know “you can do anything you want to in life”. Kembe X, he’s an artist, and Felly… being around people who so many individuals listen to and have them break things down for you and be like “you’re here for a reason”. That has to mean something because many people aren’t in those rooms, surrounding themselves with people who inspire them.

We see you started making women’s clothing, what lead you to that? 

I think women’s fashion is just easier to work with. I don’t know any lady who has masculinity issues and I like pastel colors, vibrant, positive, happy things and most guys shy away from that. But I like seeing that stuff so I want to make that so I can see it.

Do you have any strong female leads in your life currently? 

My mom, definitely my mom – she’s a strong woman, she’s a single parent and it takes a powerful woman to raise children on her own, I commend my mom and I wouldn’t be half the person I am if it wasn’t for her.

What inspires you when designing your women’s line? 

Anything and Everything, I suppose. I want things to be flowing, positive and have some type of message, meaning behind what I’m designing.

It’s International Women’s Day today, what women in your life will you celebrate or reach out to? 

I’ll celebrate my mother, because she’s a groovy lady.. and every other single woman. The walk they have is a little bit harder than most, so I commend them and hopefully there’s more changes in the world and we can bridge the gaps with women in society.
