Lets be honest, most trends and fashion websites are blogging about the same brands over and over. Its a fact. I remember when I used to log on the usual blogs and find fresh, new and impressive stuff from unknown brands. It was refreshing! I remember discovering stuff made by people from all over the world, to get to know individuals who were creative, shooting photos, creating short runs of tees, maybe even customizing things by hand, or even doing who knows what.
I understand blogs need advertisers, that the blogger job demands good photography, a good layout and such, but people, its ridiculous to get a full post about a fashion company launching skateboards, or some brand who launches one single keychain, when there are so many brands putting out stuff out people deserve to know about.
Im not complaining SKULLS is barely on those blogs, or how other brands get the press when they are doing way similar things as Im doing. No, its not about that, although I sincerely would love to be featured in some of those blogs to be able to reach to more people. I just feel that more brands deserve credit. Credit to be able to grow.
Pardon me when I say that I feel the fashion and streetwear blogs are responsible for showcasing the youth culture of today. Responsible as in the internet era, blogs are the visual bible of many, or even most of the youth looking for new, fresh, inspirational products and brands.
Im not here to preach, to teach or to guide nobody. Im just a guy who does products he loves and wants to share them with others. Im blessed to have the support of some people out there who are “Family”, thanks again to all of you. With just about 3 to 4 posts in major blogs since march 2011, its just humbling to be able to sell out every product I have put out so far.
Creating a product is an amazing process. Its magic. Its passion. Its hours. Its sometimes, for new brands, an economic risk that not everyone can take.
Lots of people have emailed me about dreams, about ideas, about building their own thing, about reviewing their collections, about “how much”, about “how”. And nobody is barely giving them a chance to show their creations.
Over here cant create a fashion blog, and my schedule doesnt allow me to create more stuff than already do, even thou I manage a spanish written blog called miszapas.es, so if your new brand, new project wants some attention, Im down.
Because I was there, because I spent (and still do) countless hours to create things, and is just fair somebody gives you a small chance to show the world what you came up with.
