A Conversation With Daniela Lima

How long have you been volunteering in the community?

I have been living and volunteering in the Valley for 16 years.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I was born and raised in Brazil. I came to the United States as soon as I graduated with a Business Administration degree. 

I had the great opportunity of working with some big corporations such as American Express, Paramount Pictures, and Universal Studios. However, I always had the desire to create my own business. My past experiences really helped me gain insight on the fashion industry. I worked with Brand Licensing for over 13 years, and fashion was always a great part of it.

It took many years for my business idea to be shaped into the business model I have today. Since I think quite big, my ambitions to change the way people shop for clothes are also vast.  “For You By You Fashion” is a custom clothier that offers a unique and exquisite experience. We help to design your perfect garments and make them for you.  You will not only have perfectly fitting custom-made clothes, but will also be treated like a celebrity. Of all the celebrities that have their own fashion label, most do not have a technical fashion background. They usually sit down with a fashion designer and jointly create their fashion label based on their personal style. This is exactly the experience we offer at “For You By You Fashion.”

Where do you see your business in the next 3 years?

I see “For You By You Fashion” expanding nationally and internationally in the next 3 years. I see my business model being recognized as a sustainable, fun, and unique way people shop for clothes.

Why did you join The Valley Economic Alliance’s Business Accelerator Program?

I joined The Business Accelerator Program at The Valley Economic Alliance because I see it as a master mind program. The minds within the program become something more than the sum of their parts, and greater things can be achieved.

What are you most excited about your business accomplishing in the near future?

I am most excited about growing my business in the near future. The sky is the limit!
