Meet Denequa Williams Clarke, founder of LIT Brooklyn, an eco-friendly, luxury candle company based out of Brooklyn, NY.
Lit Brooklyn was born in 2015 out of the need to fill a void in the wellness space. It’s more than just pretty packaging & fire scents.
It’s a step in the right direction when it comes to our health, it’s a conversation starter when it comes to things we ingest,
the brands we support, & the products we blindly bring into our homes. The materials used to create the candles are sustainably sourced.
Denequa’s unwavering commitment to make & introduce cruelty-free affordable luxury to her community has aided in the brand's rapid success.
Andre Uncut of Good Breed Films the all around visual artist who primarily uses photography as a medium to bridge the gap between his love for NYC and style.
Andre has been featured with outlets such as Buzzfeed, The Source, Highsnobiety and brand like UGG, Fila, No Sesso, Billionaire Boys Club, Stussy and much more.
Andre Uncut's work is a distant memory that lives in all of us, nostalgia. A reminder that paints a picture for a new generation that realizes their own reflection.
The photographs transform into a physical folk tale telling a story of a century that gives birth to the very culture that we so much admire today.
1800 Splurge (born Rickey Webster in Houston, TX on September 04, 1997) is a New York-based Jamaican-American fashion designer, artist, musician,
collector, and entrepreneur. He is best known as the innovator and creative director of the playful, high-end streetwear clothing line,
The Peaceful People (TPP). His lively Afro-Japanese-inspired unisex brand, The Peaceful People, was founded in 2020 around the values finding yourself
through peace, youthfulness and creativity. Growing up bouncing from foster home to foster home, he had to imagine the world he wanted to see.
Often turning to art as an outlet, he would create random characters and scenarios to distract from the harsh reality. The Peaceful People
is a physical manifestation of his journey of finding peace through art and fashion.
