INTRO - Chris Julian
Name - Chris Julian
Age - 27
Occupation - Owner of Fruition, a Las Vegas based clothing boutique, and a managing partner for Stussy Las Vegas and UNDFTD Las Vegas
Yesir, the first INTRO post and it's going to be about this guy right here, Chris Julian. This guy is a homie of a homie i know, and from what i hear about him, he's an overall cool guy. He's a designer and artist that's on a totally different level. A local celebrity in his hometown of Las Vegas, Chris always seems to be laced in the freshest gear. This guys swag level is off the charts, and it's easy to see his creativeness anytime you see him. He's also known to roll with the likings of Lupe Fiasco and Fonzworth Bentley, and recently got back from Paris after chilling with his homie Kanye West. Iv also been hearing a rumor, that i can't confirm, that he is actually working on Kanye West's clothing line, Pastelle.
His brick and mortar, Fruition, was conceived back in 2005. This anamoly shop carries a plethora of street-wear brands ranging from Fila to Gucci, to Adidas to Chanel; the list goes on and on. You just can't find any boutiques out their with that kind of brand range! I personally think its a must see place anytime you heading out to sin city, even though it is off the strip (don't be lazy).
Chris is overall creative dude, and in a world where everyone plays it safe, its cool to see people like him breaking the mold. Being an aspiring designer myself, people like Chris is what keeps me motivated to do what i truly believe in doing. With a positive persona about him and being an ambitious business man, this guy is definitely an inspiration, no homo.
