Janzen Tew CEO Denim & Velvet Marketing + Design

Janzen New is the 29-year-old owner and founder of Denim & Velvet Marketing + Design. Growing up in the horse industry and now married to a professional Team Roper, all with a heavy interest in fashion, she noticed the absence of a central hub for boutique and brand owners to get everything from their logo and product photography to consulting and multi-media management.

As a self-taught photographer of 10 years, Janzen’s knack for product styling has helped her clients stand out from their peers, and Denim & Velvet’s creative visual content and flare is what sets them apart from others in the industry.

Janzen has photographed international events, helped market products that have been featured on The Bachelor and spoken on panels at events across the United States. Marketing is one of the many passions Janzen has and her work ethic is truly what makes her stand out from the crowd.

Monique Terry Founder of BLD x Monique

Monique Terry, the Founder and Creative Designer of BLD x Monique (pronounced Bold by Monique) launched her first jewelry collection in November 2019. For Monique, the constraints and demands of corporate America left her creative soul yearning to break free. In her free time she started designing edgy statement pieces with handwritten inspirational messages. The simple words of encouragement or scripture are beautiful reminders to keep pushing forward.

Soon after launching her initial line, she uprooted her life in the DC metro area and relocated to Dallas, TX. Why? She still doesn't know what made her take that initial leap but it has been the best decision for her and her business. Soon after arriving, her local and national following quickly grew and has turned into a tight knit community.

Monique wants to encourage others to keep going and not be afraid to take bold steps in life. BLD x Monique fuels her creativity while uplifting and inspiring people around the world.
