YouTube content creator and entrepreneur Viy Cortez recently announced a new business venture. But this time, it is more than just a simple project, but a partnership between her and her eldest sister, Ivy Cortez-Ragos.
In a Facebook post, Viy announced that she and her sister now co-own Ivy’s clothing line, “Ivy’s Feminity.”
“I’m happy to announce that IVY’S Feminity is now co-owned by me and my ate Ivy Tumbaga Cortez-Ragos, a sister partnership with a goal to reach success in clothing business. Watch out for new collection!” Viy wrote.
In an exclusive interview, Ivy Cortez-Ragos revealed what made her say yes to this partnership with Viy.
“Trust and faith, yun ang number one na nagpa yes sakin, yung tiwala ko sa kapatid ko,” Ivy told VIYLine Media Group.
“Alam ko na pag pinusuan ni Viy ang isang bagay, ibibigay niya hindi lang hundred percent, bagkus hundred-twenty percent pa yan. Alam ko hindi ako pababayaan ng kapatid ko, alam ko na ibibigay nya lahat ng tulong na kayang ibigay niya sa Ivy’s Feminity para lumago pa,” she added.
Ivy’s Feminity is an online apparel business that started before the pandemic. At first, Ivy sold her pre-loved items and eventually expanded to wearable apparel for women.
Meanwhile, Ivy, who also served as VIYLine Group of Companies’ Field Operations Head, admitted having mixed emotions with this new chapter of Ivy’s Feminity.
“Excited kasi alam ko na mas lalaki at mas maraming mangyayari sa Ivy’s Femnity, maraming dapat abangan, at siyempre sa tulong yan ni Viy kasi super magaling si Viy sa business, as in!” Ivy said.
“Kinakabahan ako kasi siyempre ibang level na si Ivy’s Feminity lalo na nandyan na si Viy, alam ko kasi iba pag si Viy na yung kumilos, iba pag si Viy na ang nag-isip. Sobrang kinakabahan ako kasi gusto ko lahat ng gusto ni Viy magawa ko, matrabaho ko and for sure magtutulungan kami lalo na andyan ang parents namin to guide us,” she added.
Ivy’s Feminity will be at Team Payaman Fair this March 8 – 12, 2023, at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 1-3. See you there!
