Lady Minor is the love child of Samantha Jade Minor. That’s me. You can call me Sam. I’m a makeup artist, clothing designer and writer but most important I’m a mom of 7 beautiful humans. Years ago, I struggled with low self esteem after being in a really bad relationship. As a way to get my confidence back I started modeling. During this time I met an amazing designer in Phoenix Arizona. I modeled for him for a little while but the more our friendship grew I began helping him run the business instead of being his model. Thrill of casting calls, coordinating fashion shows and handling press quickly over shadowed the feeling I got when I was the one walking down the runway.
I continued to model and started sketching my own designs but never did anything with them. Until I modeled in Tucson Fashion Week. The designer I modeled for was also the founder of TFW. We got to talking and she asked me about my goals. I told her I loved modeling but wanted more than anything to be a designer. She told me she loved having me as a model but if my passion was in design then to submit my designs for the next year and have my clothes in fashion week instead of walking.
The following year I took her advice, submitted my designs and I got in! For the months leading up to my launch I had drove 2 ½ hours back and forth from Phoenix to Tucson for casting calls, interviews, fittings etc. Did I mention I was pregnant with kid # 6?! The night of the big runway show at the end of a week of events was the first time my designs would be going down the runway. I can’t describe the pure magic that I felt that night, but I knew I did not want it to end!
I’m a strong advocate for women supporting women. I believe in female empowerment and there’s room at the table of success for all of us. There’s power in numbers and a lot more women would get further ahead if we simply fixed another queens crown and gave her some words of encouragement.
I may be a bit biased, but I pride myself on being a loyal friend and uplifting women everywhere. I love champagne but will not turn away a glass of wine (preferably red), on days when I’m feeling down I will put on an entire face of makeup just to take pics for the gram. I like lilies, lace (there’s just something about a sheer piece of clothing), 90's hip hop and R&B and to be swept off my feet.
I am Lady Minor.
