As a young child she demonstrated her ability for crafting and always wanted to be well put together to impact her peers. With her mother, her most staunch supporter, made sure that her daughter was enrolled in crocheting, knitting and painting classes. In fact, she took classes on how to design Flip-Flops and braided jewelry to feed her daughters active imagination.
But her creative personality is part of her nature and needed to strive towards " the art of design" or as she refers to her creations " the hanging pieces". She continue to craft in other mediums; wood, acrylic, macramé and attended classes to perfect working in sterling and silver wiring techniques.
In 2011 Grehyni launches her brand GREHYNI NARVAEZ Designs with an E-Commerce store front called I -CHIC -Collections that sells her designs but other emerging artisans.
With the help of her sister Grecia Narvaez, who is part of the business and helps run the operation, they have participated in trade shows and pop up events to market Grehyni Narvaez Designs.
However the designer has set in motion new goals for the brand with a new handbag line, that has Grehyni's iconic signature of sexy lips, a swimwear collection plus a new Jean and Shoe line sporting the Signature lips as a distinct monogram.
Her first customers " her friends" from school started wearing her braided bracelets
and necklaces. Hence a brand name emerged from the young artisan that wanted to create unique and "one of the kind" pieces for her fashion forward friends and women.
