Striving for success and nothing less! – Christian
Dasia : Why did you want to create a brand ?
Christian: I wanted to create a brand I can expressively use as my creative platform. While some people express their feelings and emotions through either music or singing,I do so through what I wear.
Dasia: What do GNOB mean ? What motivated you to start your own clothing company ?
Christian: “GNO B” is an acronym for Generation Brainwashed. Being able to be my own boss motivated me to start my own clothing company. I now have a business that I can call my own.
Dasia: What are your current favorite trends ?
Christian: I’m not one to dress according to the latest trends, so I don’t have a favorite, although I tend to stay up to date with them. I will say I’m a big fan of graphic tees and sneakers. You’ll catch me in a chill fit 90% of the time.
Dasia: Who designs your products ?
Christian: All of the designs that are on my tees and hoodies are hand drawn by me.

Dasia: What are your plans for GNOB in the next 5 years ?
