How did fake socialite come about?
Fake Socialite is a term that a good friend of mine and I came up with a few years back, when we first entered what’s known in New York as “The Scene”. I started the brand officially in the Summer of 2013. Long story short, last summer I realized how many people I was inspiring without even knowing it.
What is a fake socialite?
In our generation it’s easy to be considered famous or popular in a short amount of time. Even though it’s a great feeling to be loved and admired, not everyone that I have come encountered with has taking the humility pill. These people are known as Fake Socialites BUT, this term is universal and goes beyond New York City. No matter where you live you know someone who you would consider a fake socialite.
What message are you trying to send to people through your line?
The message that I’am trying to send to people through Fake Socialite NYC is is that the term “Fake Socialite” is not a negative term but more as a reminder to people to remain humble and use their voice for good. It’s important that people know they should use they’re pedestal of popularity as a platform to encourage and inspire people. People need to know that they’re presence is more valued than you know.
Anyone you would like to collaborate with?
There are so many people I would love to collaborate with but, i’m also very aware that because FSNYC is a new brand, it’s important that I make sure the identity is fully developed and noticed. Too many people collaborate before they’ve even set a tone for themselves.
What can we expect from Fake Socialite in 2014?
In 2014 you can expect more great apparel, more great visuals and I just hope to continue inspiring people.
