    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.

    W is for Woman













    There are two types of people in this world. People who live in insecurity with moments of confidence. And people who live in confidence with moments of insecurity. I like to live in the latter. However, women, girls, ladies are built on the first category. We are taught at a very young age to carry insecurities. To not be “enough”. To identify our flaws, harp on them, even to an obsessive point, to fix them, throw money at it, cut it out surgically, medicate it, put makeup on it, and wear it all over our physical body. Like life’s anxieties aren’t enough, we had to dress it in insecurity.

    I can’t even begin to say how fucked up that mentality is. But how do we change it? Do we talk about it behind closed doors during sleepovers and brunch dates. “Ugh, I feel so fat right now?” Or cue that Mean Girls clip when they’re all in Regina’s room comparing their insecurities just so they can feel better about themselves.  Yeah, no thanks. I hate participating in that weird social situation that happens way too often. When I hear someone say, “My pores are SO big” or “I have bad breath” or “Yellow looks so bad on me,” I give them a compliment that isn’t physical. “You’re absolutely impeccable!” “How do you always have the best taste in music?” “You literally create such vibrant energy when you enter a room!” In order to create confidence, we have to start with ourselves by recognizing silly habits. We have to make small habitual changes to empower other women thus empowering ourselves.


    Thank you W Times Square and Kim Geronimo for an incredible collaboration and the inspiration behind this thought. I drink to you! Cheers.
