STYLE: AGENDA EMERGE FOOTNOTES
by Sam del Pilar
People simply want more! Brands have realized that consumers are smarter and want to associate themselves with a brand they can grow with and be a part of. AGENDA has taken on a very innovative task with curating the space for street wear OGs to speak to aspiring designers, creatives, and entrepreneurs. From everyone who spoke- Jeff Staple, Bobby Hundreds, Johnny Cupcakes, and Mark Ecko- there were a few overlapping themes:
1. WORK YOUR ASS OFF.
2. BE AUTHENTIC- ALWAYS.
3. DON’T LISTEN TO ANYONE, JUST DO YOU.
We’ve been told this many times but hearing it from these cultural pioneers in the game was even more inspiring. Below are some major quotes from each speaker and you can also check Bobby Hundreds’ piece on the experience from his point of view right here.
