Inspiring Conversations with Dylana Fox & Taylor Austin of Mid Mo Trends

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dylana Fox & Taylor Austin. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Taylor and Dylana met working in retail in 2018. In early 2019 they decided to branch out on their own and start Mid Mo Trends. April 12, 2019, they launched their website, For the rest of 2019, their merchandise stayed in plastic tubs and they traveled all over the state of Missouri attending vendor events.

March 2020 when the world shut down they decided it was time to do something they had been planning on for a while. They renovated Dylana’s grandma’s old Levi’s store in Cole Camp, MO, and opened the storefront on May 22, 2020. With a storefront location, they were able to expand and grow a lot.

In March of 2021, they went to the market for the first time to purchase for Mid Mo Trends, which had been a goal since they began. In September 2021, Mid Mo Trends joined two collective boutiques. They joined The Kindred Shops that are located on The Country Club Plaza, in the Independence Center and Oak Park Mall. They also became a part of Desert Rose in Sedalia, MO. They hope to continue to grow and expand as the years go on.

Mid Mo Trends carries something for the middle schoolers to Taylor’s grandma.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Being 22 when they began their business it was hard to get people to take them seriously, many people just felt it was a hobby. Adjusting to having 5 in-person locations has also taken some time.
