“For one night only the king will be taking over the big Apple”

I will be hosting a panel entitled “Dukes Inspire Kings” presented by HyLo Boutiques on March 8th, from 8 to 10pm  at the Apple Store on Walnut Street Philadelphia, Pa. Along with Sean Olubodun, founder of Duke & Winston we will be discussing how technology has played a significant role in the building of our brands within today’s ever evolving fashion industry. Both moguls will chat on our rise, struggle, and leads into successful branding opportunities. This is one fashion forward event you won’t want to forgo!

Using the hashtag on twitter #DukesInspireKings tell @hyloboutiques and @Curran_J what you would like to know about Kings Rule Together and myself.

“Kings Ruling together” – Young King

I recently teamed up with a great friend of mine Michael Reynolds, to do a style project for Osrick Ingredients Cricket. Osrick Ingredients Cricket is a menswear line that offers cutting edge men’s cricket inspired clothing, such as t-shirts, knit vests, cricket pique shirts, cricket sport coats, Oxford shirts, trousers, and other sport inspired apparel products.

The video was shot by Juan Ortiz of Redd Pen Media, it captures behind the scenes footage from the shoot. I love what I do and this day was no different, it was filled with a lot of hard work and excitement. I styled along side with Rodney Jon (MUA), Vincent sawyer (His Exclusively) and Pixtions (Photography). Check out the video. – K.R.T.

“Some of the most stylish men from all over the globe”

I’m always looking for stylish people to shoot on the street, some areas are more abundant with style then others. There have been days when I went out looking for people to shoot and didn’t find anybody. So when the opportunity presented itself after my interview with Marcus Troy “hint” it was much appreciated due to the fact that some of the most stylish people in the world were in one place. Check out these cool guys I had the pleasure of photographing at Project Las Vegas.- K.R.T.

“GQ.com loves the Young King”

Its always an honor to be photographed by Tommy Ton for GQ.com. This was my fourth time being on the top men’s fashion site. This time I was next to a fellow blogger friend Steven of ostentationandstyle. I really like how we look cohesive but with two different type of styles.

 “Sight means education and opportunity” – Toms

I get this question every day, “Are those prescription glasses or are they just for fun.”  This initiative from Toms Eyewear is very dear to me. I realized how  important my vision is to my craft and rarely do I think about how many people dont have the means to correct their vision . So my answer is, yes these are prescription. – K.R.T.
