FASHION

What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion to me means wearing whatever you want in confidence.  It’s self-expression.

Do you consider yourself an artist?

I consider my work to be art so yes I believe I am an artist.  Everyone is an artist in his or her own passion.

How would you define your personal style?

I feel my personal style is very versatile because I dress by how I’m feeling.  It could be from simple to chic to loud and vibrant; it all depends on my mood.  I love to take on roles of different fashions; you can be whoever you want to be.

How would you define your city’s fashion?

I feel like our fashion here in Houston has somewhat of a lag compared to other cities, because we are always the last to adapt new trends and styles.  But our city definitely has a great amount of style here; everyone expresses himself or herself in whatever they want to wear.  Everyone’s style is himself or herself.

Do you try to send out a message or theme in your clothes?

The freedom of expression.  It’s more than expressing you verbally it’s presenting yourself to the world.

How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

My body jewelry represents enriching the confidence of women who wear it and I’ve also designed for men as well.  But in all it is for women to embrace their inner “Queen”, to showcase their worth.

Where do you see your brand going?

I want to see my body jewelry in fashion shows, shoots for major magazines, and I want to be the “go-to” person in the accessory industry.  I want to be a part of the movement that grows Houston fashionably. I want to eventually open my own custom accessory boutique.

How does designing jewelry differ from designing clothes?

The only difference is pretty much the materials being used.  They both have similar a process, where you start with your vision, the sketch, the materials, the measurements and execution of course.  As far as body jewelry for me, they are one in the same.

Where does your artistic influence come from?

The majority of the time I like to freestyle my work and design as I go.  But a lot of my inspiration comes from simple ideas I see online, magazines, shows, themes and how I can make that design into something completely different.  How I can make simple, extraordinary?  I dare to be different; I try to constantly reinvent my last masterpiece.

Which Kontrol cover girl or guy would you pick to wear your line?

I would honestly choose any of the Kontrol covers to rock any of my designs.  They all embrace a unique confidence with their names written all over it.  I want my body jewelry to be worn with poise.

LIFESTYLE

What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion is really broad, I’ve always dressed simple. I feel like I’m just getting an understanding of fashion, you can say I’m learning in a sense.

Do you consider yourself an artist?

That’s what I am first. I feel like when people understand that they will be able to digest what I do.

How would you define your personal style?

It’s silent and as loud as you can be. It’s about how I feel that day. I don’t really pay attention enough to know what’s in style. Maybe once I start making clothes I’ll develop a style. Everything I wear is basic because it’s not Lamont Rudolph so until then I’ll let my hats and bags shine.

How would you define your city’s fashion?

Very confused. When I say confused I don’t mean the people are confused but the city hasn’t really found its place because everyone is influenced by the person to the right and left of them, I guess it’s trendy.

Do you try to send out a message or theme in your clothes?

My message would be the philosophy I live by daily, anything is possible. Everything is original, it’s all me. I send my message through my work ethic. I can’t send you a message through a hat but I can make a really creative hat and you might pull something from it.

How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

My style is luxury but not luxury in just being nice. It’s the luxury of having something made exactly how you want it. I do use expensive luxury material, that’s nice and all but to take that material and have it customized to whatever the client desires, that’s luxury.

Where do you see your brand going?

I see my Creativ Bordum brand being mainstream. I see my Lamont Rudolph line getting more private the bigger it gets. My hats on the LR line aren’t just “fancy” they are functional.  I want Lamont Rudolph to be a household name.

Where does your artistic influence come from?

My uncle would be my first influence he bought me my first sewing machine. My influence for my designs and patterns come from everywhere, It could be something I see or  hear. I feel like if your influence only has one source of origin it’s going to eventually run out.

Which Kontrol cover girl or guy would you pick to wear your line?

I would like to see Keke Palmer in my product. She has a really pretty smile. She also has a name you would remember. She has grown into a beautiful young woman and would be a perfect cover model to wear Lamont Rudolph.

ENTERTAINMENT

What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion to me is the best way to display how you feel as an individual. Your fashion is your identity.

Do you consider yourself an artist?

Yes I do consider myself as an artist. I am a rapper and my line matches the feel of my music.

How would you define your personal style?

My personal style would probably be best explained as a summer night in California, very comfortable.

How would you define your city’s fashion?

Atlanta has a very flashy and edgy sense of fashion

Do you try to send out a message or theme in your clothes?

No deep messages I just wear and make what I really like for the people that support my music.

How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

Basically I would say skheduleone is urban (hip hop)

Where do you see your brand going?

There’s no limit to where skheduleone can go I think that we are still in the stages of figuring out where we would like to go. Our following is growing from Atlanta, Florida, to Houston and we have no plans on stopping the movement. I am working hard to deliver for my fans and supporters.

Where does your artistic influence come from?

I am inspired by my peers and all genres of music.
