Speak Nation!

Speak Nation is a clothing line that incorporates the attitude of today’s youth with the classic trends of the nineties youth. Through utilization of bold, creative, and inspiring designs the brand gives a voice to the masses through none other than fashion. Fashion is extremely important to this generation. It is the youth’s form of self expression. Our fashion sense speaks long before we ever open our mouths. Speak Nation’s new collections Fine and Fresh and Fine Ass Tomboys are the epitome of this generations’ version of self expression with mixes of classic trends from the good ole days.

Originally known as Speak Tee the brand was founded by Leon Christian. It had good feedback and following, but was later revisited, revamped, and renamed. With the help of William Collins, Speak Nation then sprung forth from the creative minds of the two men. Both had a background in performing arts, yet decided to take up public relations in college where they met. Similar interests and work experience in retail, fashion, business, etc. overtime led to the Speak Nation brand and movement. They created a brand that transcends coasts and cultural and or age differences through fashion.

The new collection, Fine and Fresh, is inspired by the cleanliness of Calvin Klien and the fashion statements made by Moschino. Fine and Fresh is combination of two collections put together. The collaboration of the two represents Fine Ass Boys and Fresh Ambition all in one. Nineties figures, symbols, people, and logos can be found all through out the collection. This shows the true Renaissance period that this generation is in; a nostalgia for what was. Speak Nation is all about QUALITY! The tees are crafted from the best poly cotton and poly blends for this Spring/Summer season. The collection had a launching event, presented to me by Founder/CEO and leading publicist James Achille of Achille Media (@achielle_media), this past Friday with special guest and face for Fine Ass Tomboys, Blu from Bad Girls Club! The event went off without a hitch!

The overall experience with the brand has been both rewarding and humbling for the creators. They are in the process of giving back to the community. More is to come from Speak Nation in the near future! Non profit organization, more clothing and styles, and expansion of the brand through the industry and the world! The name may have to change because this movement is affecting more than just our NATION!
