LEWISBERRY, Pa.-- It is not common for a person to be able to own and run a business while attending classes, especially when those classes are in a high school.

For one Red Land teenager, that is a reality as the young fashion designer's company has taken off.

Hollis Kolmansberger, a junior at Red Land High School, started "By Hollis" when she was just 14-years-old.

"I always wanted to be in the fashion industry, so it was a way for me to get exposed  to whats out there," Kolmansberger explained. "I was at a soccer tournament and there was a heat press there. A heat press is just like a giant iron; you can take transfer paper and press on designs so you can customize them. So, I was like 'Mom I could so use that!'"

Soon after, the "By Hollis" brand was launched.

Todd and Emma Sadowski were able to talk with Kolmansberger in their Teenwork segment on FOX43 Morning News. Check it out for more information on "By Hollis" designs, including a new, inspiring design that celebrates the life of a young girl that lost cancer.
