DMV artist K’ron drops his latest visual for BLS shot by Cool Kids Films.

Last month Amber hit me up saying she was doing wardrobe for an artists video and wanted a few pieces to style some extras, but ended up getting to style the artist in one of our custom jackets and and a military jacket on the antagonist in the video. Dope concept and the song is fire. Much appreciation to Amber (@AmbersReign) for making the play happen, she’s seen in the video as well (light skin with the green short cut) in the party scene.

Another great look to begin the year off for GoonMilk.

When designing I like to repurpose garments and bring life to something people would usually disregard. You’d be surprised how many pairs of vintage US Army Issue fatigues i come across thrifting. Seeing those and being the rebel I am, I figured why not customize a few pair. The Juxtaposition of using Camoflauge and Applying large logos to stand out is a trick I picked up failing out of art classes in college. Crazy right, because I love art but being in Baltimore by 8am coming from Upper Marlboro daily was a task so I took attendance L’s every semester 🤷🏽‍♂️. Anyway; taking something like camofluage, normally used to hide, and printing undeniably huge logos over it to pop out at first glance. The urge to stare is almost undeniable.  The Camo blends but the logos jump at you!

I guess I did learn a thing or two at Morgan...

I digress, go cop these right now in the GoonMilk SHOP!

Exclusivity has become a scarcity. So I’m creating a line that you can’t buy. Flipping the script on some Jedi Mind Trick type shit. Nothings sacred anymore; streetwear’s no longer underground. Everyone’s hip and now the “Custom” boom is upon us. I’ve never seen so many custom shoe painters in my life until now. What used to be the “in crowd” is just the crowd now, everyone’s creating but following the same formula. I’m not one to chase trends or follow suit. so from now on G.O.O.N.S. get the money, Boooog run the Streets, and Avante's focused on the Art. Whether it be Clothing, Styling, Food, or a mere Thought... it can’t be bought. 

Lowkey I just miss having the feeling of knowing you had the only pair around. That being the sole reason most people i know get fly; to stand out from everyone else around. So until I get that feeling back I’ll be in the lab creating but Sorry, it’s Not For Sale.

P.S. That’s the name of the line “Not For Sale” and thats the logo but This will not be a GoonMilk line. A new GoonMilk line is dropping Soon! Stay tuned G.O.O.N.S.

I ended my 2017 doing what I said I would at the end 2016, Styling. This year has been a manifestation of many things, but Styling came to fruition rather hastily and I can not be more proud of my growth and experience in Styling. It feels so good accomplishing goals and reflecting on how you got there. The connections made, the knowledge gained, the mistakes, everything seems so minuscule in comparison to the finished product but it all adds up. I put the work in and paid the cost to be the Boss.

This past weekend I styled a shoot with Amber and her friend Maxine for some unreleased GoonMilk Private Stock Items in preparation and promotion for my 5th year Goonmilk Anniversary Fashion Show/Party. Androgynous looks that when styled correctly can be worn by either men or women. using hoodies, the Hockey jersey, and camouflage pants as the focus of the shoot. Take a look at the shots below!

A lot of times Women ask me "Well why don't you make women clothes?" Honest answer is that I need help, a woman's perspective and a manager of said women's line first before i take on that type of responsibility, but this year may be the year of the first GoonMilk Women's line. Stay Tuned!

Yesterday I received my Graduation Letter from the Mastered Online Accelerator Program. I have been studying Fashion Styling for the past ten months, networking, styling photoshoots, and meeting some awesome people through the Mastered network. The program itself is based out of London, and broken up into different disciplines, Fashion Styling, Make up, Hair, Creative Direction, Photography, and a few others. The genius of the program is the Professional Experts that not only are involved and available to reach out and communicate with, but they also grade and critique your work throughout the program. My particular Fashion Stylist program was headed by Alastair McKimm, Fashion Director at I-D Magazine.

Since my second Freshman semester at Morgan, I knew that I wanted to be a stylist. Yes of course I always wanted a brand and ownership and I've accomplished that with GoonMilk, but the dream job was becoming a Personal Stylist to Celebrity clientele. This program was a stepping stone towards that dream and validation that I can do and be whatever I put my mind to. The stress of uncertainty, tuition, deadlines, traveling, and not to mention the work load was a huge test of whether being a stylist was something I really wanted to do. Ten months later I can say that this is something that I am extremely passionate about. Everything from the excruciating selection process and interviews, to the $6,000 program costs I paid out of pocket, to traveling to NY and LA for photoshoots alone with a duffle full of clothes, to now being a Mastered Alumni in a directory with some of the most creative people Ive ever met in the fashion industry at the tip of of my finger tips... 

So with all that being said,

It was worth every Penny. ...

and Im in the Showcase Highlights!
