Megan Kent isn’t your average girl. At just 10 years old, she’s started her own T-shirt line, Love Gone apparel, and has big plans for expanding the franchise in the future. Between designing the graphics and overseeing their production, Megan has her hands full. At roughly 30 dollars a pop, she’s on her way to a mini-mogul future!
When she’s not designing T-shirts, Megan can be found practicing gymnastics, shopping and swimming. Watch out world – Love Gone could be the next big thing.
GL talks with Megan to learn what goes into creating a fashion line, what inspires her and more.
GL: Can you tell me about your T-shirt line?
Megan: I came up with the company about a year ago and it’s taken about a year to make the line.
GL: What inspires your designs?
My friends. I know their style, and I know a lot of people like their style, so I try to go from there. I wanted the company to have something to do with love, so I came up with the name “Love Gone.”
GL: Do you design the prints? How?
I design them, test them on shirts and then order the shirts in bulk. I draw them on paper. Right now there is only one main design, but I’m working on a new one right now. It involves a broken heart with the words “Love Gone.”
GL: Do you have a website?
You can find the T-shirts at lovegoneapparel.com. It tells you about the company and you can also shop online.
GL: Where do you like to shop? What do you like to wear?
My three main stores are: Hollister California, Aeropostle and American Eagle. I’m often inspired by what I see.
GL: How do you see your business growing in the future?
I think this is going to be a very successful company – I hope one day we’ll be in magazines. Hopefully we’ll eventually move onto jeans and jackets.
GL: What’s the most fun part of Love Gone?
There are two fun parts: One is designing, and second is waiting for the shirts to come in and see the finished product.
GL: Do you see yourself in fashion when you’re older?
I love fashion, and want to go into it when I’m older. I want this to be a really successful company. I want to stick with designing.
