Why did you decide to create your brand?
After graduating high school in 2011, I knew I didn’t want to go to college. I knew I had to do something with my life… so I created a brand so that I could express my creative ideas and make a living.
Has your brand evolved over time?
The brand is a direct reflection on myself. As I grow it grows. Since starting the company in 2011 I’ve learned so much about life and myself that I want to reflect in the brand.
Discuss some of the pieces from your most recent release.
The most recent release is an ode to my city – Atlanta, Ga. It encompasses a Vegas style poker chip, with a compass encasement. To be born and raised in this city, I just wanted to pay my respect as one of the last true ATLiens.
What are some major clothing lines that inspire you fashion-wise?
To be honest, other brands don’t inspire me. I try not to look at other brands to keep my ideas as true to myself as possible. I think you can see that in my designs. They’re different and you couldn’t say I remind you of any other brand.
What are some of your favorite pieces you’ve released through your line?
My favorite pieces have come from the Dream Warrior Collection I did with my big sis Kayla Walker (@ruleofseven). She runs an non-profit blog that publishes people’s stories about their lives and things they’ve overcome and been through.
What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?
Creating! To be able to take some from the mental plain and establish in the physical is an awesome feeling for me. Almost addictive!
What is your least favorite part about being a fashion designer?
I must say I truly enjoy it . Creating, meeting and touching people with my work and the places I’ve been.
What are some of the designs & styles of your brand inspired by?
My inspiration comes from music, nature, art, and science.
The city has an emerging dope fashion scene I would think. It hasn’t blossomed just yet, but it’s on it’s way. Most fashion in the city is basic… Jays and joggers. It’s really trendy nothing prominent.
When is the next release?
Where can interested customers purchase your apparel?
