Mariah Riddlesprigger, the partner of Greek NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo, just launched a new clothing line named ”Sincerely, Mariah.”
The messages of Mariah’s new line are particularly optimistic and try to boost everyone’s self-esteem at a time when depression is on the rise due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
In her introduction to the website of her company, Riddlesprigger explains that she created this clothing line to remind us of you how exceptionally unique we are.
”Hello, Beautiful People! My name is Mariah. I created this brand to remind each and every one of you how exceptionally unique you are! My goal is to provide a product that discourages self-doubt and shouts that you are worthy!” her inspiring welcome message reads.
”Inspired by all of the remarkable people I have met throughout the years, I hope that this brand serves as a constant reminder to embrace who you are, unapologetically!” the 28-year old woman notes.
The idea for the creation of ”Sincerely, Mariah” came from a difficult moment in Riddlesprigger’s life.
As a new mother, she struggled with self-esteem issues, as she was feeling inadequate and isolated due to the lockdown.
“I was losing myself trying to be this perfect person, and nobody can be perfect,” Riddlesprigger told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“It just really came from me being down and wanting to spread more positivity because I know more people are going through similar situations,” she said.
The shop currently features a limited series of products, however, it is expected to grow very soon.
Currently, the line includes chic black and white t-shirts and hoodies, as well as sweatpants.
