By and large, that is why Newsom, a native Memphian, established Fashionably Lethal, a full service style concierge business that offers consumers the luxury of creating what Newsom describes as “eye-catching styles without having to lift a finger during the process.”

Amongst the reasons is that Newsom’s style concierge services admittedly has “blown” her mind but, to her credit, she’s been afforded the golden opportunity of assisting several celebrities.”

And to think, her business is enjoying continuous growth in the process, an upward, progressive trend about which Newsom hopes will savor a lasting impact for some time.

“My clientele has grown tremendously and the connections I’ve made thus far in this journey are rewarding,” Newsom said. “I’m so thankful for all of my valued connections.  Just the feeling of knowing that I’ve impacted the lives of many by simply wardrobing them is such a humbling experience. My clients become my friends and they are everything to me. I treat them like royalty and they are very spoiled.”

And, given the well-publicized, immediate impact she’s had in the proverbial “wardrobing” universe, it’s safe to assume that Newsom, this distinctly classy woman of color, is destined to remain spoil in her own right — particularly as it relates to expanding her brand.

eeeeHeck, for the most part, it seems she’s starting to erect a clothing fashion track resume that suggest, among other things, that her best and brightest days a rising entrepreneur are well ahead of her.

Talk about fashionably lethal.

“I come from a long line of gifted seamstresses,” Newsom explained. “From my great grandmother to my mother…I watched them design and sew for so many people, and the looks on their clients’ faces were always so satisfying to me.”

vvvvSurely, as far as stylish clothing goes, those apples didn’t fall very far.

If nothing else, it seems Newsom has only mastered that about which her predecessors appropriately taught her.

How else to explain her booming success as business owner?

vvvv“I never wanted to learn to sew,” said Newsom, “but I wanted to wear the clothing that was being made. Every time my mother and I went to Hancock Fabrics, I would touch just about every piece of fabric, rub it against my skin and face to see what it felt like and visualize the type of clothing that could be made from that piece of fabric.

aaaa“It was kind of like a sixth sense,” Newsom continued. “I would yell out to my momma, ‘Oh ma, this would be so sharp if some pants were made out this!’ And she’d get the fabric and make me a pair of pants out of the fabric. We’d spend hours in that place. It was therapeutic for me, so fashion has always been in my blood…just at a different concept.”

All of which explains why she’s a go-getter, a trendsetter, for the most part.

Especially when it comes to clothing and wardrobe fashions.
