    Lynn Kim Do

    Lynn Kim Do may be the first fashionista to define and coin the term Neckbreakin’ Style but she is certainly not the only person that this term encompasses. Lynn takes inspiration from the street, from the mundane and thus her extraordinary everyday experiences, and presents it rawly along with visuals and personal style. This is a platform beyond personal style. It is a space of personal experiences. Lynn Do creates a platform that curates her very honest, sometimes too honest, stories called "Street Talk" with style that is also uniquely raw. Having footprints all over the United States, her view of fashion can not be defined by one location or even one style except one - streetwear. She believes in minimal and clean streetwear without losing all the attitude and sass with it. Her visual and production expertise has accumulated many highly recognized repertoire of projects with clients like Revlon and Urban Outfitters. She has been featured on Nylon.com, The New York Times, and WWD to name a few. If you ask her though, her biggest personal achievement is surviving a year lease in a six floor walk-up NYC apartment.

    Happiness, the 2nd class citizens









    Why is it easier for people to share sad news than good news. To express sadness or anger or even a "bad day" than happy days. Why is it so difficult to say, "Yeah, I am really happy." Even when you do say it, what does the recipient say back? "Oh, that's awesome." The end. But if you say, "Ugh, I'm so miserable" then they're curious, right. They go "Oh why??" or "Shit, what happened?" Happiness doesn't get the same treatment. It's like most people don't give a shit if you're happy. They want to know how, why, what it is that make you sad or mad or anxious or whatever. Because they also feel that way. People want to feel like loneliness or misery do indeed have grand company. It's like happiness is second class citizens of emotions.
