The Creativity Is Sold Separately

How do you know if you’re creative? In my opinion, you see things in a way nobody else does. You notice a picture, a circle, a line, a crack in the wall and you wonder what you can turn that into. My mind is constantly turning, because as I get more heavy into fashion and design, you have to stay a million steps ahead of everybody else. Some people might ask me what do I design? You don’t know how to draw. And naw, I don’t. I get an inspiration from something, and I’ll play off that, or, I will scribble something that I want onto a piece of paper and show it to my graphic designer and he makes it happen. I have a small collection of tees and hoodies right now, and in a few months I will have NEW designs so I have to constantly pay attention to trends, color ways, pop culture, what I see on runway shows on Instagram, I’m so into it. The whole boycott of Gucci made me think, well, I can’t afford Gucci right now, and some of the people I know can’t afford it, so yo, this is the perfect time to be a Black owned clothing line. Dapper Dan made a comment along the lines that being a designer doesn’t just mean you’re just putting a logo onto a shirt, and he’s absolutely right. My goals are so far past South Bend, IN. They have to be, because how many people in South Bend will continue to rock with me and buy my shirts? What if nobody in my city buys another shirt from me again? I HAVE to think that way. I have to think towards the future, I have to think bigger. And not just have the vision of being bigger, I also have to put a plan of action BEHIND my thoughts. I used to be trash at setting goals and now I can tell you where my line will be a year from now, it’s all mapped out. Kid Jumper has a blueprint, and I work on it every single day. I have to clap for myself, why wouldn’t I think my brand is bomb as fuck? I can’t be afraid to say, shop with me now, because soon my hoodies won’t be $38 they will be $75. My creativity and my thoughts are all I have, and I have to stay true to who I am, or nobody will believe in my brand. And thank you to those of you that do.
