When I dreamed up Q.noor in January of 2015, I had no idea how long I would run this business. All I knew is there weren't enough temple dresses that women could truly feel comfortable in and I believed I could figure out how to do something about that.
Never in a million years did I think my little business that started by googling "how to start a clothing company" would completely change the entire temple dress market. I had a gut feeling that my idea would work but I didn't dare think that one day Q.noor would have improved tens of thousand's of peoples' temple experiences.
Also near the top of the list of things I could have never imaged was an extended period where all temples were closed. While most businesses opened back up Spring of 2020, with temples closed well into 2021 and 2022, Q.noor was severely impacted. Unfortunately, that meant our partners also took a major hit. In December of 2021 our manufacturer that has been with us since day one closed their doors.
I spent the first few months of 2022 trying to find a replacement manufacturer while watching our remaining inventory dwindle. Finding a new partner willing to work with our specific needs at a time where most manufacturers were still hurting due to the pandemic proved to be very difficult.
Then, in May of 2022, I found out that a complete miracle had taken place. I was pregnant. Pregnancy was one of the more difficult things I have experienced and severely impacted my ability to work let alone relaunch all of our manufacturing with a new partner.
In late December 2022, my husband and I welcomed our little boy, Stewart, into our family. He is truly the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life. Every parent believes their child is the best human on the planet and none of them are wrong.
While transitioning into life as a parent and learning what time I have available to invest in work ventures, I've had to make some hard choices. I simply can't run Q.noor and my three other businesses and soak up this special season all at the same time. I've decided that it's time for me to close the Q.noor chapter of my life and fully invest in the next.
When I launched Q.noor, my goal was to help more women feel more comfortable in the House of the Lord. Not only have we achieved that goal by offering thoughtfully and beautifully designed pieces, but we have seen the entire market up their game as Q.noor set a higher standard. I feel so much peace knowing I accomplished exactly what I set out to do so many years ago.
Of course, none of this would have been possible with out the support of my family and friends, my wonderful employees, and the Q.noor community. Each and every person who supported me in a million different ways has forever impacted my life for good. I will be forever grateful for all of my Q.noor customers who have supported this company. The women who placed preorders for our very first shipment of dresses will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for believing in my idea and making it possible.
So what now? We are clearing out all inventory by offering deep discounts. All orders will be final, as is, no returns, and no exchanges. All outstanding gift cards and store credit can be used for in stock products. Qnoor.com will still host and offer House of Light and any future digital products, however we will be taking a break from offering physical products until further notice.
To all of those wondering "Is there no other way?" Please know we're sad too. It's hard to see the end of a good thing, but we believe there are great things ahead for all of us. Thank you so much for your support as we make this shift.
Thank you always, Rosie
