Q: What are some of your favorite spring trends ?:

Aja : Love the jackets of spring, and the long list of colors and ideas and mixtures that you can choose from.

Q: What inspired you to start Rebel Native ?

Aja: Basically the lack of originality or the chances people in my city weren’t taking instead following trends so I wanted to branch out.

Q:  What does Rebel Native stand for ? What kind of products does it sell ?

Aja: Rebel Native stands for us. The artists in Baltimore who are going against the grain in our city of not being statistics and failures. We are rebelling against the system that they have in place for us, which is a system full of non caring politicians and norms. We are Natives of Baltimore but we are always expanding our lives to other cities making us grow as many know Rebels in any city usually gain a following.

Our goal is to bring a different thought process to other people in our city.  This brand is in its second year. The brand was formerly known as New Testament Clothing but that was scrapped and reinvented into Rebel Native Intl.We sell a few products and are currently expanding our ideas. Currently we have log sleeve and short sleeve shirts, cotton shorts and very soon our second collection will drop later this month.
Q: What do you have planned in the future for Rebel Native ?


Aja : Pop up shop events as well as releasing two collections.
