“A passionate city for basketball with style” 

I recently had the opportunity and pleasure of visiting the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. Not knowing how beautiful it was until my visit,  the one commodity  that  I knew of was the NBA basketball team The Utah Jazz. With the breath-taking scenery with every turn of the head, the carefully thought through layout of the architecture, as well as the population of 181,743 of those who resided there was a sight to see. As beautiful as the city was my focus was to figure out if this city had any sense of style. I wouldn’t say the entire city did, but the few that did possess some sort of style  stood out from the rest.

Despite me getting getting turned down from taking pictures of people half of the time (which may be due to the fact that they aren’t used to random people taking their pictures), nonetheless I was able to find a few diamonds in the rough. You be the judge and let me know what you think about this city’s sense of fashion from my view point. – K.R.T.

There was even a painting made in the likeness of myself. K.R.T  released 4 new products – all now available on the new online store, which were displayed on an installation piece created by Search and Rescue.

People shared laughs over hor d’oeuvres and cupcakes designed in the likeness of K.R.T’s signature crowns. by the mights end multiple prizes had been raffled off including two designer watches from BlumLux and few new item from the clothing line. K.RT. ‘s  first twenty-five guests who arrived that evening, received discounts on all apparel on the new online store. Custom INSPIRE t-shirts were available on site, where guests got to choose the colors of their shirt from OKG designs.
