When you decide to take on the entrepreneurial journey, you have to think of something that will set you apart and still bring in profits - something unique.

Coming up with that million dollar idea is the hard part. Funny enough, sometimes, your idea doesn't have to be grand, it can be just a simple idea that ties in with a societal need or a trend, especially if you're looking to become a fashionpreneur. One US-based lady has decided to turn dad's shirts into cute matching two piece sets. I found out about her after I came across her tweet where she shared photos of her craft and captioned "I turn ya daddy's shirts into cute matching sets, hit me up". The tweet had been retweeted over 33,000 times and had over 190,000 likes; a clear indication that what she's doing is unparalleled.

As simple as the idea sounds, she has turned this craft into a lucrative business with even a website. She goes for bright colored shirts and hoodies and repurposes them into matching two piece sets of a skirt and cropped top. Her business, Kikiskinis, also makes bikinis and lingerie. A peek into her website tells you that business is booming, seeing as stock sells out pretty quickly.
