Interview with Amber Kessee of POParazzi Collection

by Kesha Denise of Funky Flair Boutique

I am an accessory junkie and always looking for the hottest pieces. Well with that being stated, I would like to introduce Amber Kessee of POParazzi. This girl is a beast, actually a true Barbie, when it comes to accessories so I had a chance to chat with her and it goes a lil something like this:

Where'd you come up with the name POParazzi? And why'd you start this business?

I thought of the name b/c every time I rocked a pair they created so much attention, it reminded me of the paparazzi swarming around celebs. However, I wanted to spell it different, my mother gave me POP because the earrings literally stand out. I started making earrings for myself; my friends fell in love with them, so they were my first clients. It created such a buzz, which allowed me to develop into a brand after receiving positive feedback in the fashion industry. POParazzi has been in business for 1 year.

KD: POParazzi has been spotted in TONS of mags & videos, & even a few celebs have been draped in your collection, so how did you obtain your celeb clientele?

My collection is featured in LA's largest style house; it's the GO-TO spot for celebrities. I also have friends in the industry that are stylist or managers of artists, they see my product they love it, and they want it on their clients.


Speaking of celebs, besides R&B Singer Ashanti
, Kim Zolziak from the Atlanta Housewives, & former MTV host, LaLa Vasquez, who else has been rocking your pieces?

: Meagan Good, Brandy Norwood, Tameka Raymond(Usher's ex wife), Claudia Jordan, and Tierra Mari, & most recent, 50 cent "Baby by Me" video staring Kelly Rowland

KD: Where can we find POParazzi Collection?

AK: or Bourgeoisie Shoetique in Harlem, NY, Fierce Boutique in Laguna Beach, CA , & TAGS Boutique- in Symrna,GA (Sidebar yall: TAGS Boutique is owned by Kandi from the group XSCAPE & the newest ATL Housewife)

KD: What's POPPIN for POParazzi for 2010?

AK: POParazzi just wrapped for Video Girl movie staring Meagan Good so I'm looking forward to that, working on 2 upcoming reality shows (pilot being filmed now). Also featured in more videos, reality shows, high end magazine publications, and more store locations- I have a lead currently working on placing my collection in Australia . God is good so whatever direction he moves POParazzi, well be the route we'll take.

All pieces by POParazzi are created by the one and only Amber Kessee, and she is the ONLY company that has a double Swarovski crystal earring. Period. Can we say impressive!?!?

My favorite of the collection is the "Studded-Out" Converse - Bad to the Bone Flyness!
So Don't Just Shoot for the Stars, Be one with POParazzi!
