It all started with three young teens looking to show the world our vision through its most modern form: clothing. Visions Attire was first formulated in 2016 as a locally-owned clothing brand based in Pittsburgh, PA. We first started advertising back in February of 2017, our first ever product the “Floral Long Sleeve”. The shirt sold out almost immediately.
But why the name Visions? Well, it’s because each individual has a different vision of life which can lead to manifesting for the future. Everyone has some type of calling. As human individuals trying to channel through everyday life the brand encourages us to find our vision, and well.. yours!
So here is the vision: BE YOU! Owning a clothing line has always been a dream for the three of us. With a lot of great support and feedback, we will continue to grow and keep on grinding!
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is where it all began, a group of three high school juniors who had a dream, and now you can see our products all over, both domestically and internationally. Thanks to all of the help and support, we have been working to expand our brand further to be accessible in more countries. Our company has helped us to meet so many amazing individuals and companies with their own visions, helping us to create a community of young creatives trying to share their vision!
Devyn "Gio" Giovengo
Devyn Giovengo ( better known as “Gio”) has always had a sense for business. In seventh grade he started his own shoe restoration business that grew to almost 1,000 likes on Facebook. Through switching schools throughout his childhood years he was able to meet Derrek and Mikel. When Mikel told Gio about wanting to “do something big” he was 100% ready to work no matter what it was, since they were both into clothing they pursued Visions. Gio is now a student at Thiel College alum '22, with a bachelors degree in Business Marketing, a bachelors degree in Business Management, and a certificate in entrepreneurship.
Mikel currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA. He has always had a dream to become someone very influential at a young age, he decided that he was always going to work hard to get it. He started out with cutting grass and shoveling snow and when he turned 13, he became a soccer official. When he turned 15 he got his first job a Panera Bread and worked at Burgatory along with Gio. Gio was a kid he met freshmen year by almost getting into a fight with him over a basketball game but later became really good friends. Since then he convinced Mikel to wrestle. One day, Mikel told Gio that he wanted to “do big things, bigger than anyone in this school has ever arrived for” and shortly after, put their well-earned money together and skipped the beginning of a wrestling practice together and made the first-ever Visions product, the "floral long sleeves" after that Visions Attire was history in the making. Mikel is now a Slippery Rock University alum '22.
