We are a Family Owned Small Business Based in North Houston, Texas
Ilani Elyse Collection is an online mommy & me business ran by Mompreneur, Iyana Matthews and features her daughter, Ilani Elyse as the star of the show. Ilani models most of the clothing in her line and is the inspiration for this business idea. “I love hand selecting the items we carry in our collection based on how I would dress Ilani. She wears almost all the outfits from our collection, which allows me to help other moms find the perfect outfits for their little one since I know how each item will fit. As a mom, it is important to have clothing that will last multiple washes because kids make messes, and clothing that will have room to grow because kids grow rapidly, so being a consumer to our products helps me to filter out products that I feel are the best quality and most important, mommy approved”. Iyana Matthews is a small business owner for multiple ecommerce shops and is a website developer that helps other moms become entrepreneurs so they can have the perfect work life balance to spend with their families while still bringing in income. Iyana decided to start a clothing brand for her daughter as way to help cover the medical expenses for her [at the time] premie while on unpaid maternity leave. "As my daughter begin to grow healthier, I decided to continue running our shop to create a savings to secure Ilani’s future as well as give her the opportunities to enter the modeling & preforming world. "I want my daughter to have the opportunities and resources to do anything she dreams of and I want this business platform to serve as a bridge to those opportunities". In the future, Iyana hopes to start a non-profit organization that helps support families in need and help connect mothers to resources that will pave a better future for their children.
