- A.I’m from The City That Never Sleeps! Harlem to be exact.
A. I’m currently not in school. I’ve attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, took a break, and now I’m planning on going back to school for film directing/production.
A. I started this brand because I’m a big fan of streetwear clothing. I wanted to be a designer and have been designing since junior high throughout high school. At that time, I was designing women’s wear. Until I got to college and realized I lost my interest for women’s wear is when I fell in love with designing street wear.
- A. I chose Ruff Diamonds NYC because the meaning, “A Diamond In The Rough, ” has such a deep meaning that I can relate to and that I know a lot of other people can relate to. ‘ A Diamond In The Rough’ means someone who has a hidden talent/talents who has potential that will make them stand out from the rest. I wanted a name that can relate to my customers/supporters and not just a name because it sounds cool. Ever since I let my mind and heart go to work with this brand, I’ve actually started to become a happier person.
A. I just turned 22 yesterday! Lol
6. What are your plans for the future of the brand?
A. I have a whole list of plans that will be next for my brand and designs. Just have to wait and see what’s next. (Wink, wink!). But Summer 2013 is looking crazy! As of shows, I’ve been looking forward to being in a few showcases and shows. I was actually planning on being apart of a showcase in Long Beach, California in May, but I just might be attending instead this year. Maybe next year!
