Diamonds & Elephants
May 2010 - May 2010
I founded Diamonds & Elephants Lifestyle and Fashion Boutique alongside Bryan Pognant. We operate predominately out of Chicago but have a global audience. We produce high quality, lifestyle t-shirts, sweaters and snapback caps throughout Chicago, California and New York as well as the UK and parts of Australia.
The project was initially funded by ourselves with cash injections from various investors. We work closely with independent boutiques such as Mr Tastees and Chicago based brand JUGRNAUT who provided us with connections such as Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.
Through our online presence, word-of-mouth, friends, family, launch parties and marketing we have reached out to thousands of people throughout the world and we are continuing to grow exceptionally fast as an established fashion brand.
