Meet Mosaic the Label, an online store based in New York that uses The Studio for their business.

Brittany Pogue-Mohammed Acosta, founder & owner of Mosaic, is a biracial entrepreneur and mother striving to empower and uplift other mixed minorities by creating a space for those who want to find and solidify their place as mixed-race in a world that often asks us to “just pick one.” 

1. Tell us a little bit about your business' back story. How did you start, when, and what made you want to start this business?

Mosaic the Label officially launched on Mother's Day this year, 2021. It all started in January when I found myself searching online for clothing for my toddler daughter. 

I noticed a lot of children's clothes only featured single-raced children (usually white or black) and since my daughter is both of those races (and more), I started thinking, “Wouldn't it be nice if there were a site that showed only items for mixed race people so I didn't have to spend hours scouring the internet?”

When the idea didn't leave me for all of February (I had a notebook full of ideas then), I knew it was something I had to do. I want mixed race individuals to be able to display pride for their mix in a fashionable way. 

2. Describe your business and some of the products you sell. Which ones are produced by The Studio?

We design lifestyle products for the ethnically and racially diverse. Born out of a need to ensure our daughter saw her whole self reflected in the world around her, we set out to create a space where diverse individuals (and those who love them) can show pride in their background by creating products designed just for them – all parts of them, not just “the good side.”

We've rapidly expanded our product offerings since we launched a few months back – we offer a line of t-shirts (short and long sleeved) for adults and kids, tote bags, enamel pins, keychains, water bottles, chenille patches, stickers, jewelry, magnets. The Studio helped us produce our enamel pins and patches


3. How has working with the Studio for your products helped your business grow? What are some of our favorite parts of the Studio / why do you keep coming back?

It is extremely easy to use The Studio for my product production. I am able to do everything I need to do online but can speak to a human if needed. Everyone is extremely helpful and fast! 

The Studio really wants you to be happy with your products and they offer very valuable guidance and opinions which I, as a new business owner, find extremely helpful. 

5. If you had to give advice to new business owners looking to start their own successful brand, what advice would you give them? What do you wish you knew when you first started selling your products?

I have two main pieces of advice that I give everyone (and repeat to myself on a daily basis!). 

1. Just start!

I know too many people that have great ideas but refuse to do anything with them. A business can be what you make of it – you can go all in with all your time and money or simply start small and grow it over time. Either way you need to just start. 

2. Don’t compare yourself. Being new to social media, I am finding it hard to not get wrapped up in what every other business is posting regarding their successes. I have to remind myself that I just started in May and growth takes time. Focus on you, your mission and your goals. Ignore everything else.
