Paulette Williams, an unstoppable and dedicated fashionista, is the CEO and founder of Teasers Boutique. Its alluring and chic style has made it one of the gems on Detroit's Historic “Avenue of Fashion” since 2003. “You can walk from one store to another and have a great shopping experience here,” she says.
Once she bought the building, one of her friends helped her finish the interior, then she flew to New York to choose her collection. Paulette started her business with $3,000 worth of inventory. "I had one shot; therefore, everything that I purchased had to sell." At the end of the first week, $3,000 turned into $9,000. Each penny she received was invested into her business. As a single mother, Paulette is a good example of how passion and dedication bring success.
Teasers Boutique is famed for its fashion shows twice a year, where Paulette exhibits her own designs as well as others. One of her fascinating creations was a cocktail dress made from newspaper. Paulette selects each item meticulously from local designers as well as Europe. "Teasers Boutique is the place where the urban lady can find a trendy, sexy, and elegant outfit to go out in," she says. She offers limited collections to avoid her customers showing up to a nice event only to find someone else wearing the same dress.
Teasers Boutique also proudly offers quintessential service for its clients by dressing them from head-to-toe and offering makeup artists and hairdressers.
