How long have you been in
the fashion industry?
What inspired you to do
your line, Uck-Fit?
with top fashion designers (Gucci, Sean John) as a model; and thus, I've gained
first-hand knowledge on how the fashion industry operates. The character and
definition of Uck-Fit is different and positive. The definition of Uck-Fit
inspires... Uck-Fit is the 'Power' to do it on your own. It’s about being a
mogul and being driven. It’s about shining because they told you that you
wouldn’t. Be seen. Be heard. Be you. Uck-Fit, it's my attitude."
Where do you see your line
in a year?
"I see our line
expanding worldwide within 1 year. I see our label inspiring many to do
what they've been desiring to do with their careers."
What separates your line
from other urban apparel companies?
see my line as just an urban apparel label. There's no way I can put any
limit on my label. My label is for everyone who loves our styles and energy
that Uck-Fit represents. We believe the softness of the fabric is very
important. Nobody I know wants to have a rough fabric against their skin. Some
labels don't care about that. Some celebrities have these lines and
they just make it about them being the creator...because they are who they
are without giving their label a positive message like Uck-Fit.
Our creations are brilliant and one of a kind. Our line has been
featured on the Kimora Lee Simmons Show, Basketball Star Josh Powell, Grammy
Winning Producers Play N Skillz, Celebrity Model/Actor Christian Monzon, Celebrity Model/Music
Artist/ Actor Will Lemay and many other key placements have been
What's next for you and
now organizing our Look Book, Line Sheet, Cad Sheet and Press Release.
Talking with some new investors as well, and I have to solidify a sales force
in other coutries as well."
What advice would you
offer other aspiring designers?
"Don't get the
Uck-Fit definition twisted. You can do it on your own but you need a great
team. I see many great designers in the world but they lack the business
sense and drive. Get partners that complement your company and read
the right books. Can you take the initiative to make those calls or do you need
to pay someone to make those calls? It's your choice. Go ahead and
choose. I wish you all the best. Peace & Blessings...."
