We had the good fortune of connecting with Quamar Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Quamar, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
My favorite quote is “DO SOMETHING TODAY THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL THANK YOU FOR”. To me that it means start today with whatever you’ve been wanting to do. Trust me it will pay off in the long run. A few years from now you will definitely thank yourself!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The thing that sets me apart from others is the fact that I think years ahead. Meaning I’m not just doing it because it’s a trend and it’s in right now! I see myself designing and recreating myself for the rest of my life! I plan on going very far with my creativity! I’m excited about the journey and how far I’ve came! The thing that got me to where I am now is that I never gave up, I had self discipline, and I stayed consistent with my goal! The ultimate thing to success is networking with the right people! It can get you very far. This journey is not easy up until this day. There’s so much more work that needs to be done. To me in my mind I’m just getting started/ready. I want the world to know that my ultimate goal with designing is to stand out as much as possible. I want people to be confident when they wear my clothing. I want the people to discover their inner creativity.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If a friend was visiting Los Angeles California I would take them to the Melrose/Fairfax area first. Melrose is the hotspot for all creatives in Los Angeles. I notice that a lot of people from All around the world visits melrose/fairfax commonly. If a friend had never been to Los Angeles I know the first thing they would want to go is the Hollywood walk of fame. Even though I been there 1,000 times I would still show them around. Not to mention the HOLLYWOOD SIGN TOO! I know it has amazing views! The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shoutout to thepopupshopla, teepartyla and flasher on Melrose Avenue for letting me showcase my work in their store, and giving me a opportunity to GROW AND EXPAND! It gives me a inside look on what people will actually buy and think is cool!
