1. What are your biggest fashion obstacles?
Not being able to find pants and dress shirts in the correct legs and arms length that I need them to be.
2. Where are you from and how you describe your style?
I’m from Huntsville, AL. My style is different from most. It’s very simple however, it represents the King that I am.
3. Tell us about your biggest fashion nightmare and if it came true do explain. (attach a picture if you can)
Being that I’m 6’6 most of the things that I like are either to short. And being in this city, I can’t walk into a regular shoe store to buy shoes. Yes, I wear a size 16 and up. (Depending on the width)
4.What are somethings you wanna see more of from your favorite brands?
I want something that represents the everyday prince and kings. Not necessarily dress attire. Not all of us consider ourselves to be thugs.
5.Where do you see yourself in five years and how do you see yourself accomplishing it?
In the next 5 years I would’ve graduated from college. Taking my music, modeling, and acting career to a new level. And happily married.
6.What do you feel is missing in fashion for the men of size?
Designers who can help embrace the big and tall. Seeing things that doesn’t shrink once I place them on.
7.If you could swap styles with one celebrity who would it be and why?
Winston Duke, hands down. He speaks to the king in me (style wise). Even his role in Black Panther gave me inspiration and a vision for another shoot.
