Intro to Modern Moguls, or The MoMo Panel for short,  aims to bring together dynamic, young visionaries who have achieved remarkable success in their respective fields. This event will highlight the unique experiences and unconventional paths that have led individuals to excel in their businesses by providing an “In the Field” type of insight not typically found in textbooks or classroom settings. 
Torianna Breaux(Tordrobes):
Louisiana-born and founder of the acclaimed fashion label Tordrobes, Torianna Breaux, has redefined the fashion landscape with her innovative approach. As the chief designer, she goes beyond clothing, shaping the consumer’s bodies and mood. For Breaux, fashion is not just a practice or business but a profound vehicle for her intense expression.
The success of Tordrobes, especially from the iconic U-Zip pants, is a testament to Breaux’s unique vision. In just three short years, she has crafted a label that transcends technicalities, embracing fashion as an art form. Breaux’s tourist perspective on the arts manifests in a distinctive palette of taste, driving the label’s meteoric rise.
What sets Tordrobes apart is not just its stylish creations but also its commitment to community and inclusion. Breaux envisions her label as a force for positive change, enhancing the lives of its supporters. As she takes the stage at our panel discussion, Torianna Breaux will unravel the philosophy behind Tordrobes, discussing how community and inclusion serve as the engine propelling the brand’s remarkable momentum and reminding us that the most important thing is to stay sane.
Donovan Kenerson (Ballers Brunch Founder, Business Consultant, Music Manager/Serial Entrepreneur):

He founded the Ballers’ Brunch in 2021 and helped to shape a networking community of entrepreneurs and business owners.
