The Interview

DT: Kelly, how are you man? How’s your collection coming along for your NYFW show with Next Frontier In Fashion on 9/13?

KG: Not as stressed as the last time. Now, it’s about shipping the samples to NYC for the show. Each season gets better and better with manufacturers, our vision, and team. I am in a great place, I keep learning, and I am painting more outside the box in a “mosaic fashion”.

DT: What was your inspiration for SP’24?

KG: My inspiration is to continue to reconstruct pre-loved garments and improve on the fashion production process to make it more sustainable. I see it as, “nothing is new, nothing is old”.

DT: I love that you showcase all types of models and always have…why is that important to you?

KG: Not coming from fashion, I had a different point of view, and wanted my models to feel like every day people, and I want people to see ALL types of  people coming down the runway.

DT: I know you sell direct to consumer from your website and social media. Any potential retail partners you are excited about?

KG: We sell direct to consumer via pop-ups. We are in the process of cultivating  retail relationships.

DT: Finish this sentence, as a child, Hip Hop was always a powerful influence. I can’t believe Hip Hop is 50… Hip Hop taught me about ______!!

KG: That’s funny, I have a love letter to Hip Hop on one of my garments. Hip Hop taught me about people of all cultures and gave me path.

DT: What words of  wisdom can you impart to younger creatives?

KG: Smile with grace with all the NOs you will receive. Chase that goal down, “no body is writing that book but you…”.

DT: Thank you for your time today, wishing you continued success!! One last question, what does success mean to you?

KG: Success for me is being able to create from project to project, connecting with others, and staying sane during the process. Also, staying balanced and being focused.
