Today we’d like to introduce you to Prince Joshua.
Hi Joshua, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I moved to Phoenix from Idaho to start school at the Art Institute for fashion marketing and merchandising. I became a gogo dancer and bartender which made me part of the community shortly after. I used to promote underwear brands on my social media a lot and it lead me to start working on my own brand Majesty.
During quarantine, I took so many photoshoots in outfits that I styled to fit my aesthetic and developed a logo for myself, and launched a simple version of my brand Majesty. With help from Phoenix locals, I’ve continued working on building my brand and have a big announcement coming in the future.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Developing a brand takes time. Nothing is done right away and patience is something I’ve had to practice a lot when it comes to the working process.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to model, I went to modeling camps and would do photoshoots whenever the opportunity arose.
After going to school for fashion and gaining an online presence on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok I started to get paid for modeling gigs and promotions which I was so excited to do. I’m really happy with the path I’ve taken mixing my love for fashion, modeling, dancing, and entertainment.
Not only do I model but I style, dabble in design, and have turned my aesthetic and presence into a brand.
In March I took my journey to the next level, my trans sister and activist Rosalynne Montoya and I moved to West Hollywood to chase our childhood dream. I plan to continue the progress I’ve made and see what opportunities lie ahead.
We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
During Covid, I took that time to further my skills by becoming a certified personal trainer and developing designs for my brand Majesty. I launched a year ago and have loved to see my own growth within the brand.
My mantra is “Royalty is the mindset you wear” and during quarantine, I wrote that down and made it something I live by. I want everyone to know, they are royalty if they choose to carry themselves that way.
