HOW IT BEGAN
In December of 2020, the founder of the The Third Conceived, Clyde Bennett III, reached out to me with nothing more than a loose concept. He grew up as a black man in a predominantly white community and aimed to create a tangible representation of his experience-- through fashion. His degree in finance offered minimal knowledge of the clothing manufacturing process, but he had the vision and drive to bring a collection to life in under six months. Clyde handled the business & bigger-picture tasks, while I guided him through every detail required to produce a legitimate line of clothing. I also contributed to brand storytelling and visual design.
