CREATIVES: Entrepreneur to Watch – Morgan Hutchinson of Murray, Kentucky
Entrepreneurs see a problem and turn it into an opportunity and that is exactly what Morgan Hutchinson and her husband Brett did when founding Buru. Morgan struggled with a newborn to find stylish clothing that worked for a breast feeding mother and quickly discovered amongst her friends that she was not alone. Brett put his business savvy to work and they launched an online shop of hand selected designer ready to wear that is functional for being a mom- shopburu.com.
Morgan is a former stylist and lingerie designer which comes in as a valuable service on the site as she gives tips and advice in their online magazine for moms and stylish wardrobing. Not only does Morgan curate the collection but she creates outfits and shows how to wear the latest must-haves. Buru has become the go-to for busy moms who want to be fashionably on trend.

Interesting tidbit about you or your business:
BURU actually means to breastfeed in Mandarin. We lived in Beijing for almost 4 years (actually until I was 34 weeks pregnant). I wanted to bring a little bit of our time there, the place where we made our baby girl who is the inspiration for the business, into the name of the company.
