Latin Biz Today’s director of community relations Tina Trevino interviews Samantha Telfair about her fashion business.

A Latina born and raised in the Bronx, Telfair turned her sense of style into a career by becoming a stylist to celebrities and A-listers on the red carpet.

Upon re-locating to the West Coat in LA, she wanted to find a way to expand upon her styling business. She founded the brand The Merger. As CEO, founder, Latina entrepreneur  and creative director of this modern luxury brand, The Merger looks to build community and collaborate with other designers.

In Part 1 of our interview, Telfair chats with us about turning her passion for clothing into a business, the learning curve of building a fashion brand and her thoughts on fast fashion.
