Clovis store offers fashionable clothing fit for school

CLOVIS, Calif. (KFSN) -- For many parents and students, finding clothing that's in dress code can be a real challenge.

This is no ordinary fashion show in Clovis.

Ceal Clothing held its spring launch party Monday. It's a company that's based on fashion and following Clovis and Fresno Unified's dress code.

"Since we are online-based, we wanted people to see it and feel it," CJ Harris with the store said. "We had really good feedback everybody said the clothing was stylish, comfortable and looked good."

Harris is one of the co-founders of Ceal Clothing. He and partner Emily Laing graduated from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy and started the business all because of one constant problem on campus.

"None of the local stores had any of the in dress code clothing that students need and so it's really hard to find," he explained. "And so we just decided this is a great solution to everybody's problem."

These days, the company makes everything from dresses to shorts and t-shirts. They say the dresses have become the company best-seller and are all sewn in Fresno.

Dresses start at $20.

"We weren't really expecting it to be this big this soon," Harris explained. "We've only been in business for two years now and its taken off."

Harris attributes a lot of their success to social media, where they connect with students and parents. The junior says working and going to school has given him real life experiences about what it's like to be a young entrepreneur.

The owners say they'll be showcasing Ceal Clothing at the Clovis Expo on Wednesday, but they look forward to expanding their dress clothing options in the future.
