Kyri tell me a bit about your self?
I’m Kyri Brown.. A 16-year-old designer, Style Blogger, and an over all a cool dude (so I’ve been told).
When did you first get interested in to fashion and was there any reasons?
Well, since I was little I have always been into dressing myself and picking out my own clothing. I was always a very creative and talented kid. One of my talents was having a good eye for fashion and style. As, I got older I started building a reputation for the guy that was always well dressed. I don’t think it was any particular reason why I got into fashion. It was just that I liked looking good. Lol
Can you tell us about your blog basically dope?
Ahh … Basically Dope is a blog that I created to share different works of art. Fashion, art, and music … in a way you could say Basically Dope is me… Like for example, the layouts. I am always revamping my blog. Because I get bored easily.. I am the same way with my style … im always revamping my closet and my style
What made you want to make your blog?
I’m not going to lie.. The blog episode made me want a blog.. But what really made me want a blog was, Justin’s and Jevon’s blogs made me actually do it.
Recently you have made Amour Moi | Abhor Moi can you tell us about it?
Amour Moi | Abhor Moi.. Is like my world right now. It is a line I started in May of this year and it is going very well and is still growing and progressing. I put a lot time and hard work into this line. I created the line for many reasons. First being, us as teenagers are major consumers, but yet we have no one representing us in the market. Second reason is that, I love doing it.
We’ll I have been designing for a long time, and I was bored with just drawing on paper. I was ready to see my work in real life and see it on other people. Around the same time.. I made up my mind that I was going to bring my designs to life, I had a conversation with my homie Justin, and he was telling me about the early stages of Phenomenal Future. I said I can do this.. And thus Amour Moi | Abhor Moi was born.
Where would you Amour Moi | Abhor Moi, to be in 5 years time?
In five years to the date.. I see myself in SoHo walking with Jevon and Justin .. Talking about how we started and how far we have come and our at least second show in NY Fashion Week.
Is there anyone you look up to inspiration?
I look up to The Team (Jevon & Justin), Great Scott, Dee & Ricky, MLK jr., Malcolm X, and my family.
If you had to describe your own style what would you say?
My style is very versatile. The only term I can use is “Basically Dope”
What music our you in to and is there any specific artists?
I’m in to Hip-hop, R&B, and Pop. I like Nicki Minaj (my wife lol), Drake, The-Dream, Rick Ross, My shawty’s GossyP, Diggy, Theo London, and Pharrell.. And people that have similar styles.
