For a large amount of designers the motivation behind their dream is monetary. Yes, they must possess a genuine eye for fashion to be successful. But that doesn’t negate the reality that most brands are, likely, primarily interested in the monetary gain.
Then there’s Kikkit! A Richmond based clothing brand whose concept is quite the opposite. Don’t let me trick you by implying they’re not about the benjamins. They are! However, the owner’s motivation is slightly different.
I thought I was going to feel better, but I didn’t. Better, having a different definition than relieved. The weight of the decision was now gone, but the impact of it still resonated. It didn’t matter that he ghosted me for days after, or at least, I didn’t think it did. Because when he finally reached out, my initial interest to respond had nearly dissipated.

Every now and then, life presents you with amazing people. Ones that are not only driven and interested in their own personal endeavors, but also those of their peers. Designer Chanel Green and her manager, Sapora Carter, happen to be two of these people. In early December, Chanel decided to take a step in a new direction by putting together the STitch Dream Benefit Gala.
