"I realized I had a passion for my brand When some of my friends would ask to borrow some of the items I've made . I saw how pleased they were & that made me want to see others in my clothing . I then envisioned denim as a lifestyle ! I drew inspiration from the 90s urban/pop era . I believe denim is classic , versatile & timeless . it'll be forever a necessity in fashion." - Anthony D.

My advice for those that idolize my work or have goals of starting their own brand is to STOP PROCRASTINATING! the longer you wait , the less likely it'll happen. To be an entrepreneur it's best to think like one. Just go for it , and work with what you have. Lastly, Create a positive atmosphere by networking with those that are just as driven as you are. Brainstorm & do your research . - Anthony D. Sampson/Menace Denimz
