Upon graduating from Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising and Consumer Studies, T. Francis moved to New Orleans to pursue her career in fashion, and that is when Real Gunkie was born. The fact that Real Gunkie sells custom designs, vintage pieces, and active apparel all in one shop is what sets us apart from the competition. Real Gunkie allows the customer to feel elite and exclusive at an one stop clothing shop. Real Gunkie has the ability to keep the fashion forward and fashion cautious customer exclusive. Since the birth of Real Gunkie, the clothing company has been featured in several fashion shows including Raw New Orleans, Raw Austin Texas, Rock the Runway Essence 2017 hosted by Angel Love from Love and Hip Hop, and a Featured Designer in New Orleans Fahion Week 2018. Real Gunkie was featured as a stylist in 7 Hues Magazine, radio interviews and commercials on Music Exchange Radio, and networked in various cities to create brand awareness. Recently, Real Gunkie was featured on a News segment on KMSS Fox 88 in Shreveport, Louisiana and was on the front page of the Shreveport Times discussing her recent successes and future goals such as her youth program, Real Gunkie Fashion Program. T. Francis is active in her community and positioning Real Gunkie to be a household name. Why shop anywhere else when you have Real Gunkie?
