    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.

    by pretty things












    Surround yourself by the prettiest things. And when I say pretty, I’m not talking about pretty people or pretty artwork or “that shit is pretty expensive” shit. I mean the deep rich feeling of pretty that exists in layers beneath the surface, the face, the frame. The feelings of attachment that’s inexplicable or, perhaps, brings you to too many words gathering at the tip of your tongue.

    As a creative, an actress, an artist, I am moved and impacted by my surrounding. I have to be. You have to be. And we have to understand that sensation. The energy. Especially if we want to create something that will impact the world ourselves. We have great responsibilities. To me, artists are humanity’s keeper. We’re the vessel that nurtures it. So don’t blame me for taking my responsibility and my vessel quite personally. And don’t blame me if I want to decorate that vessel a bit and make sure that the 5 ft radius around my vessel is all but inspiration and pleasing, aesthetically and internally. This notion bleeds over to people, too. People I keep around. The only people worth my time are people with bellies full from genuine love and kinetic creative energy. Our vessel—our home—is too important to hoard useless and ugly feelings, people, and things.
