Symba Clothing to offer fashion for women of all sizes in Ypsi

Felicia Sims has always had an eye for fashion. Her dream was to create a store where women of all sizes, particularly women of color, could find great clothes. Come October, that dream will become a reality with Symba Clothing & Fashion in Ypsilanti.

"I was trying to make a woman feel happy while she's shopping," says Sims, "and not break the bank on nice, quality pieces."

Symba has been operating online for a few months, but Sims decided adding a physical storefront was important to her clientele. As a shopper, she likes to try on clothes and have the option of making returns easily. As a business owner, she found just the right spot for her shop at the new Ypsilanti Town Center development. 

"I noticed that Ypsilanti didn't really have a store that I was trying to create," Sims says. "A couple of people have refered me to Ypsilanti as well."

Sims hopes to opens Symba Clothing & Fashion's physical location in October. She plans to operate the store herself at first, and then hopes to hire an employee in the future.
