Back in 2008, my boy and style partner Duane, a.k.a “Duane Baby” a.k.a “Baby D”, a.k.a President and CEO of Garb Tenement asked me to style their lookbook for their new line of dope hip hop tee’s for mens that they planned to sell online.
I was honored by the offer, but I hesitated. I never styled mens before, and I wasn’t confident enough at the beginning to do the job, but the whole Garb Tenement team put their trust and encouragement in me, and believed that everything would turn out perfect, and it did!
Might I also add that I had 1/2 an hour to whip out the wardrobe….weeeeeeeeeerrrdd!
After confirming a simple theme with an all white appeal, and “daily mens tasks” (haha), I had a better feel of what kind of vibe they were looking for. Again, with the help of the best collabo team from the Black Widow photo shoot, this would have not happened without them!
Needless to say, it was pure fun, jokes and no doubt a learning experience!
Look out for Garb Tenement!
