@infoaboutog / @ogbrand
Who are you currently crushing aka your WCE?
Aleali May, definitely. And @Avanope. I don't know shorty real name. They're both so consistently creative and true to an aesthetic that is originally there's. That's really all I strive to be.
Who would you Freaky Friday with and why?
Probably with Anna Wintour. She a true Og. I would just like to see what a day in her life is like. I wanna see what she eats for breakfast, what she drinks with dinner. But mostly, if I got to Freaky Friday with her I would probably change my outfit 10xs/ spend my day in her closet.
What's the most Chicago thing about you?
Probably that I grew up on the Southside. I've been eating Harold's since I was weened off baby food.
You have the chance to meet one of your idols and ask them one question; who would it be and what would you ask?
Michael Jackson. I'd ask him how he continued to evolve as an artist. So often I feel like I'm plateauing and he continued to recreate himself over and over and got better each time. He's also a fucking fashion icon, so I'd like to ask him about how he continued serve all day.
What are you up to now? Shamelessly plug yourself!
Working on my third collection of Og. Brand. This is going to be the first comprehensive and complete collection that I've created. I had to sit back and become a student of the industry and learn about detail, quality, presentation and how that reflects the value of the brand. So I'm really excited about how it will be received. I also have been managing the Nike Lab Chi space, so I've been actively involved in helping them build a presence in Chicago. Working with them has developed me as a professional tremendously over the past 3 months.
What is your favorite website or blog?
Colette does a really good job of curating content and finding great designers. My favorite website is WGSN. It's a fashion database that shares information about trends, runways looks, visual merchandising
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself owning and operating my own store. I'd also like to create a creative branding agency and have that be something that I do collaboratively with my super talented lady friends.
What is your favorite movie or book right now?
Get Out, sorry not sorry.
What is your favorite color?
Red, Blue, Green, Yellow
Outside of your current career or passion, what would you spend the rest of your life doing?
Great question. I'd probably spend the rest of my life hanging out with dogs. I love puppies more than anything in my life. I'd be a dog walker, trainer, groomer.
