"After my grandmother and inspiration, Rose Kaleiopu Ventula passed away I wanted to do something big that would be in remembrance of her and her constant love for her 8 children and 21 grandchildren. Sweet Enemy Clothing was born in 2013, then it was just a dream but today it’s a company that honors and glorifies her beautiful name. The name Sweet Enemy Clothing visually and metaphorically explains her name and the impact of her loss on my life. The rose is her; simply beautiful and iconic for love and the thorns; shows the enemy, the pain and the hurt that we all go through. Both the “Ghost Angel” and “Halo S” line shows her presence in my life today as my angel. By praising my grandmother’s name, I hope to spread the same positive influence she made on my life to others. "

"STUDIGS Photo came about out of a passion to capture my surrounds. I have always been obsessed with streetwear culture. Looking for a creative outlet led me to pick up a camera 5 years ago to document and share my vision with whoever was looking. With a passion for street photography I wanted to do more with the images I was creating. I wanted to merge my love for the street with other interests I have such as streetwear fashion and hip hop music. Capture the Creative is a limited series that is allowing me to get into the space of photography I want to be in and narrow down my focus to build a powerful and meaningful portfolio."
