Straight Official Sits Down With Marcia Polite

Almost two years ago the CEO of Apex Magazine, Antuan Wright approached me about a good friend of his. He said that he thinks Marcia should become a fleet model. He stated he felt that she would be a great addition to the organization. I spoke with her and from that point on she has been a fleet model. She is very kind with a soft voice but she gets her point across. She is very versatile in her modeling style which is always a good thing! She has been a great model that I am super proud of! In saying that, you know that I couldn’t wait to sit down and chat with her. 

Hey Marcia! How long have you been modeling? Also, what made you want to become a model?

Hey! I’ve been modeling for about 5 years now, maybe 6 lol. I always had a desire for it but I just didn’t know how to get myself into the mix if that makes sense.

 

Of course that makes perfect sense! Most people don’t know where to begin, so I get it! Now tell me, what was the best photo shoot you have ever had?

One of the best shoots I had was with the photographer Angelo Riley. It was a holiday themed shoot and we shot it in below freezing temperatures. I loved how everything turned out and I really showcased how beautiful I can be fully clothed too.

Yes, you can be beautiful fully dressed and sultry as well. See now that is what I am talking about with your versatility. So, with all that is going on in todays world, tell me how has the pandemic affected your modeling? 

 Omg just like everyone else the pandemic has definitely affected my modeling . I had so much stuff planned for 2020 shows, events, traveling etc. But slowly but surely everything started getting cancelled one by one . So yea it  hurt my goals and plans I had for myself.

 

Yes the pandemic has been rough on us all. Well moving along, how is it being a fleet model?

Being a fleet model is cool. I love how we support and uplift each other. I like how we rally behind each other with no hate or jealousy in our blood lol.

That is so true! We are like a sisterhood you know?

Girl yes we are!

That is super dope. Well since you mentioned it was hard to become a model because you didn’t know where to start. Do you have any advice for anyone who wants to get into the modeling industry?

My advice to anyone wanting to be apart of this industry is to ….. remain true to yourself and never forget why you wanted to start in the first place.

Good answer! Nothing worth having comes easy! So now provide a list of your social media links so people can follow you.

WILLIE VIVERETTE RELEASES VIVERETTE TIES

This past Sunday the newest entrepreneur from Indianapolis, Indiana released his anticipated line of bowties to the public. WILLIE VIVERETTE threw his designer hat into the fashion realm circle with his line of VIVERETTE TIES and to celebrate, he took over the Bella Marcia Event Center and invited every dream chaser in the city to not only celebrate his achievement, but to jumpstart their respective journey into entrepreneurship.

Viverette Ties Release Party Flyer

I spoke with Willie about his line and how he got the inspiration to create this unique line of bowties. Being a fashion connessuer, Willie got the idea while preparing to attend an event. “One day I was getting ready for this party that A Few Good Gentlemen we’re doing when I wanted this specific type of tie. I searched and searched and couldn’t find anything. A little voice in my head said “ Create it!”. I started the process and here we are now.”

Willie also shared how his upbringing played a role in his decision to create Viverette Ties. “I grew up with no mom, no dad, no sisters or brothers, so my resources were limited. In my younger years, I’ve never really had anything to call my own or nothing that I felt like I could be proud of. When I use to go school, people would crack jokes on me because my clothes were old and outdated.” His love for fashion grew into a personal mission to be the freshest person in the world.

Willie Viverette

The name Viverette is not only his last name but is also French. “I’ve always been told that I have a unique last name but I never really entertained the thought of actually having something unique enough to carry the name. Once I started designing my bow ties, I then knew that this was a perfect opportunity to brand me and my son’s legacy for future generations to come.” The ties are made from a premium velvet and includes a lapel pin, cuff links and a pocket square.

I asked Willie what will make Viverette Ties stand out from the competition. The process and production are just a few of the selling points he spoke on. “Viverette separates its self by a number of reasons. One being the fabric quality that we use. We choose from over 75 different fabrics which means that we are hands-on with the designs. There are a lot of other people and companies that hire some one to do the choosing and I feel like that takes away from the innovation of the overall brand.”

With his line already making huge noise at Midwest Fashion Week, I asked Willie about his future plans with Viverette Ties. Without hesitation he replied, “My plan for Viverette Ties is world domination! I don’t want anyone wearing anymore neck ties. Those are a thing of the past!” One of his visions was seeing his line featured overseas and this month, he will see another vision come to life as Viverette Ties will be featured during Midwest Fashion Week in Paris, France next month.
