We had the good fortune of connecting with Nam Ho and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nam, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by the lessons I’ve learned from my life. These are the messages I hope to pass on through my brand to help others. I am also inspired by people who perform at their highest potential and positively impact the people/world around them.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
A lot of my art reflects what I was going through at the time and what I was learning. Each collection is a message that I hope can affect people in a positive way. I’m proud to still be doing this 11 years later. I’m excited to tackle the same “problem” in continuous, new and different ways. We got here by doing. It was not easy, but that is what helped us grow. We overcame challenges by not giving up. This taught us that if you ever doubt yourself about something, do that something more. The life of an artist and the life of an entrepreneur are probably 2 of the most misunderstood, and that is why they make a story worth telling.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
If my best friends were in town, and I could take them on a week long trip, activities would include: bonfire at the beach, getting ice cream, collaborating on designs, taking the time to really listen to and appreciate music, KBBQ to start the journey, and something healthy to end it. Lots of Hennessy. Only the universe knows what happens from there.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate this shout out to anyone that’s ever supported our brand. Your support and kind words of affirmation are all pieces to this home. It wouldn’t be the same without you.
