This mom of two combined her passion for design with her knack for marketing and created The Iman Project
What started out as a boutique private event design and styling company 10 years ago has morphed into a marketing, consulting and styling firm for creatives.
Clarks spent her early years in marketing and hospitality which has proved to be the perfect combination, her experience has clearly helped her create brands with staying power.
The Iman Project was started by founder Bree Clark as a no brainer. Growing up in Houston, Texas she was no stranger to hosting, and planning lavish parties thanks to her parents love of entertaining. Bree was encouraged at very young age to plan, organize and design countless events for her parents. “It just came naturally to me” says Clark.
The confidence she gained from assisting her parents as they entertained was enhanced when she had the great idea to launch her first business as a child. One could say that Bree was born with the spirit of an entrepreneur. She took her love of playing the piano and turned it into a profitable company. She was no stranger to sells and marketing. With her younger cousin in tow Bree went door to door in her neighborhood until she reached and surpassed her goal of 25 piano students.
