As a woman with a vision, Brandi Stampley didn’t wait for the media industry to offer her a job. She created her own multi-media platform called Brandmii Enterprises which includes her New Orleans culture magazine, The Barbarian. and platform The Magazine Girl. As a fashion blogger and radio personality also, Brandi also believes “life is too short to wear boring clothes.” I chatted with the lovely Brandi as we discussed her multi media platform Brandmii Enterprises, the inspiration behind Magazine Girl, and her passion for fashion.

What are some of your favorite fashion sayings or quotes?
BrandMii Enterprises was created due the rejection that I received trying to find a job in the media industry. Therefore, I decided to create my own multi-media platform, which includes but not limited to… The Barbarin Magazine, my website (www.brandmii.org) and my job at Crescent City Radio station. The magazine is a New Orleans culture magazine, which is in dedication to my late great grandfather, Louis Barbarin who was a musician (drummer)in the Big Easy. I am also a writer and that’s where my blogging comes in place. I talk about random topics that can be featured in my magazine. I am also a radio personality on Tillmac’s Corner at Crescent City Radio. We air every Sunday from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm and I also stream live on facebook every episode! I host various events and you can find me supporting a lot of local events as well. Whenever I’m at an event, I’m representing for BrandMii and networking too. Continue to stay tuned because there is much more in store!
