Who says Secrets don't make friends?
I had the chance to venture into the world of designers Nyce & Homm of Jeantrix Clothing Co. We were out and about all over MPLS. I took'em out for a delicious lunch at Uptown Cafeteria & then we headed straight to MOA!!! It was the best experience they had while in MPLS. lol (I forgot how exciting MOA can be to newbies. hehee) They couldn't believe that MOA had a Nickolodeon Universe amusement park in it and took pictures right when they saw all the roller coasters. It was super cute to see their eyes light up as we got closer to Nickolodeon Universe. I almost got away with murder when I tried to get em to jump on a ride with me. LOL let's just say that was a #fail. =P Along with the amazement of MOA they couldn't believe how "nice" MPLS was. I told'em we have our share of niceness. Trust me, not everyone here is nice ;) All in all, i had a blast with the boys. They're the most down to earth designers you could ever meet. And I couldn't be any happier to have met and hung out with them. Now, I can't wait to see their collection at The Sweet Fashion Show!!!
There's only one thing I can say, we are definitely, TAKING OVER THE WORLD!!!
S E C R E T S if you don't know, now you know:
A: How'd you get started with designing?
N&H: We actually started off designing a pair of sneakers for ourselves. Our friends started to notice the sneakers and started asking us to design things for them. It went from sneakers to t-shirts and to where we are now.
A: How long have you been designing?
N&H: We've been designing for 7yrs now.
A: Holy shhh...wow, that's amazing! Who would you consider an inspiration to you right now?
N&H: Betsy Johnson & Lady Gaga are a few of our inspirations. Lady Gaga has definitely set the bar for people to start being different, more individualistic. We even got a tweet from someone saying that Jeantrix should collaborate with Lady Gaga.
A: hahaa nice, I was featured in the street style of VITA.MN one of our local newspapers and i stated that my idol was Lady Gaga. lol, good memories. So, whats next?
N&H: we're moving to NYC!
A: What do you think about MPLS so far?
N&H: Its cold but everyone here is soo NICE! It's different in Philly.
A: LOL is it weird that it's so nice? that's what we call the "minnesota nice".
N&H: no its not weird, it's kinda nice. when we told our friends coco&&breezy that we were going to MN they were like, "that's our hometown!". Now we know why they're so nice. lol
