Inviting Arkansas: What inspired you to open your own business?
Cade Williams: Bringing a more high-fashion option to the gentlemen of Central Arkansas
IA: What motivates you to unlock the doors for business every day?
CW: What motivates me is the pursuit of my passions. Every day is different, you never know who is going to walk through those doors, and it’s not just putting clothes on them, but putting an outfit together for their first date, or their proposal night, or wedding pictures. It’s boosting confidence through personal style in a way that people will always remember.
IA: What keeps you living + giving in Central Arkansas?
CW: I love Central Arkansas, because we are usually the late adopters when it comes to trends and fashion. So I watch the new trends coming out of LA and NY and try to bring them here first. Which makes it easy to be a trendsetter in this market.
IA: Why do you participate in CARTI’s Festival of Fashion?
CW: I believe CARTI is an excellent foundation. Having lost a grandfather to cancer, and knowing many friends, family and loved ones who battle with cancer daily, I’m glad I can help to support an organization that does so much to help those in need.
IA: What keeps you coming back?
CW: The people, the love, the community
IA: Favorite Fall Trend?
CW: Everything elongated! Basic tees, shirts, jackets and coats.
IA: Must-have Accessory?
CW: Wide-brimmed fedora
IA: Season’s Essential?
CW: Bomber jacket
IA: Fashion/Style Icon?
