i’ve been to la and back and la and back and washington and back again. all signs point the hudson valley. i just can’t stay away.
“why do i even keep trying to run?” i ponder upon my return.
there’s beauty, history and community. but a void needs to be filled. a piece of culture, of style, of passion of blackness that i couldn’t seem to find a connection with in upstate, ny.
the old ways felt tired and it’s time to show a different side of small town living that represents the modern youth’s need for freedom of expression.
so i shifted my energy to attract my tribe. like-minded people who want diversity and its beauty to be shown.
and that’s just who we are: a local streetwear brand uncovering all the color of the valley; aka hudson valley eclectics.
