More Than A Look. It's A Mission
Hi, I am Camille, the designer and co-owner of Black Mustard Seed (BMS). BMS is my passion and mission. God has put in my heart the desire to create, as a reflection of the Creator - YAWEH. As a kid I aspired to be an "artist/scientist/inventor" who somehow could make it to the WNBA. When I became older I realized that, while I love basketball, my passion for creation is where God called me. I create for the advancement of God's Kingdom. I believe we are all called to plant seeds of faith for the glory and expansion of the Kingdom of Heaven. BMS was founded after a literal dream I had led me to leave my tech corporate life and comfort zone. Ultimately it was this leap of faith that led to me walk in the fullness of my calling as an "artist/scientist/inventor" for God. The style of BMS clothing is heavily influenced by my love for basketball, streetwear, and my tech roots. The designs are visual expressions of faith and knowledge of God the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. Oftentimes inspiration is born out of my time in worship and prayer. When you wear BMS brand, we want you to feel empowered, bold, and proud to represent the gospel. We want our clothing to speak life into others and to encourage you to live out the truth of the gospel, and to trust God in every situation.
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. - Matthew 13: 31 - 32
Some scholars believe the Black Mustard is the plant Jesus was talking about. When this tiny black mustard seed is planted it can grow up to 10 to 15 feet in some cases. Black Mustard grows everywhere. Completely invasive. It inner twines tightly creating these dense layers called thickets… becoming home to many animals. It literally becomes its own ecosystem. Perhaps some would say kingdom. In the some scriptures thickets are used to describe kingdoms. Like the black mustard seed, the power and potential of Faith is great! Great enough to move mountains went planted! Our Faith is the seed… The kingdom of God spreads through us…creating a thick covering as we spread the word of God, people give their lives to Christ, increase in faith, and the Kingdom of God expands!
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17: 20
BMS features unique, sometimes thought provoking, spirit filled designs. We don't design unless there is God given inspiration. BMS strives to provide dope apparel that will encourage believers and non-believers to take notice of God. Whether in school, work, on the court, or skate the park share your faith. BMS not only strives to give you opportunity to share faith but to strength your own. Know you are covered by grace through Jesus Christ, powered by the Holy Spirit, and loved by God! It is through strengthening and sharing faith that the Kingdom of God grows. Like the mustard seed...
In everything we strive to be aligned with God for God's Glory and the expansion of the kingdom of God. We design authentic Christian streetwear that will reach the masses. But we don't stop there. Faith without works is dead. 10% of all profits go back to God through Faith Church which has great local and global missions and ministries. PLUS we instantly donate $1 dollar from each item sold to other Christian Charities including feeding the poor, rescuing the sex trafficked, and prison ministries! That's on average 17% of our profit doing good works. As we gain support, our goal is to increase in giving and transition to a non-profit charity and foundation.
