NICE TO MEET YOU

I'm Kalilah Wright

I am a designer and architect by trade. I launched my t-shirt company MESS in a Bottle 8 years ago with little to no start-up capital. I have since created a multimillion dollar t-shirt brand. I did not have a background in t-shirt design or production and I used my skills as a designer to help catapult my t-shirt company.

I am excited to use the skills I have learned to teach others how to start, stabilize and scale their own t-shirt brands.

"I purchased a heat press machine to launch my t-shirt brand and had no idea where to start! The equipment was sitting in the corner collecting dust. I feel so much better now! After I took Freshman Orientation, I feel more confident and equipped to get things going!"
