    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.

    Making sure people like you shouldn’t be your priority. But making sure people you love know you love them, well that’s my priority.

    But sometimes, it can be so damn hard. Especially when everyone around you IS ACTING ALL TYPES OF CRAZY. And life isn’t always mango sorbets and falling in love in the subway. It isn’t random Bachata sessions outside your apartment or finding a dollar bill in your pocket. Sometimes, just SOMETIMES, and even sometimes is too often, it’s stepping on fresh dog shit. It’s spilling coffee on your shirt the moment you step into the office. It's a passive aggressive text message from your friend. I hate when I receive that "k." text. It’s layers and layers of mundane seemingly little bullshit that just irks you. And I realize...feelings are so temporary. Friendships and trust shouldn’t be. They aren’t. Not the real ones. Not the ones you made wholehearted decision to call your best friend and vow to protect, to call family, to remember every single allergies of theirs like they’re your own. People will be people. In fact, people are human. But not every human is my soul-friend. So no, I refuse to please everyone. I'm selective in my friends just as I am selective in my wardrobe, food choices, and pretty much everything. You have to be. Time and energy and money are all precious things. And it took me a long time to decipher all these complex feelings. What’s worth never turning back for, never crossing a bridge again? What’s worth fixing? Worth letting go. And worth just laughing off.
