    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.

    forgive, but never forget







    How many people in my life are just waiting for me to fail?
    How many people never send a text just to see how I’m doing?
    How many people think it’s okay to use me intentionally, even unintentionally over and over again?
    How many people celebrate me when I succeed but are nowhere to be found when I am struggling?
    How many people in my life smile in my face, like my photos, and send me heart shaped DMs but talk hella shit IRL?
    How many exist in yours?

    The answer is “too many.” One is too many.

    But that’s okay.
    I’ll send love in every direction, even if it takes a sharp right and hits my hater right in the forehead.  I’ll admit it, they don’t deserve it. But I won’t lower myself to their negative 6 feet standards. Keep digging their own grave because no energy exerted ever goes wasted (positive or negative). I’ll stay above ground, thank you very much. I’ll keep on moving forward. I won’t even put enough effort to remove them from my presence. They’ll see their way out, like they always do.  I won’t internalize it. I can’t. I’ll project it back to you, right where it deserves to be. And I’ll remember every little thing. And I’ll forgive them. Let it go. But I’ll never forget. I’ll never forget each doubt. Each attempt to hit my ego. To use me. To break me. To foul my name. Wolves are pretty, but they’re still wolves.

    - never forget
