CEO and founder of FIFTH COLLECTION
“I TOOK TWO OF MY PASSIONS - ART, AND FASHION - AND COMBINED THEM TOGETHER TO CREATEARTWEAR.”
- ADECIA OWENS.
What do you get when you find a visionary who just happens to lovefashion and art? You get Adecia Owens, this month’s featured entrepreneur. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in fine arts and has a passion for both art and fashion, so it’s only natural that she created Fifth Collection.
Launched in June 2022, Fifth Collection is wearable art that Adecia curates and/or designs. Her journey began when she realized that Dallas needed a place to purchase wearable art. For those who are unfamiliar, artwear is clothing that depicts a custom artist-created design. For Adecia and Fifth Collection, this translates to a gorgeous collection of hand-painted denim, dresses, tunics, and kimonos.
When asked about her initial goals in creating Fifth Collection, Adecia explained, “I want to build the wearable art niche as a way toconnect artists with others who are heavily into fashion.”
