We had such a great opportunity to do a collaboration with upcoming model Jacob Hazelkorn. Read about Jacob below and checkout our IG for our fall campaign with him.
My style mainly reflects just me being who I am and how I express my art of fashion, I love the whole new wave of grunge and colorful clothing in fashion & the hip-hop culture. Lil peep is someone that inspired me to stand out and be different to express myself. I’ve realized it doesn’t matter what others think. I dye my hair crazy colors, grow it out, and braid it but I just like to do what I want with my appearance- I’m happy with myself. I’m from Ohio, I live there today it’s basically farmville. It’s hard to make it out of a small town with small town mentalities. I enjoy traveling its dope meeting new people and going to places I’ve never been before. I started modeling in 2017 by taking pictures of myself in a mirror. If someone told me I’d be in the position I’m in today back, then I would have laughed in their face. I hope that one day I can be known by millions of people and I want to spread positivity and try to make the world a better place.
The way I started modeling, I just started photographing the street wear pieces I had in my personal collection, and I just love the way you can shape your aesthetic on Instagram so I was like I have these clothes why not take my own pictures and see if they blow up, and they did. I have a long way to go until I will feel like I’ve succeeded in life, but I’m thankful for how far I’ve come it means the world to me.
I love being an influencer because I can express myself and spread my message across an audience instead of just a group of friends. Being an influencer is dope because there’s so much you can use your platform for. A lot of my followers are coming in from collaborations I’ve done in the past, events and re-shares of my pictures.
I just walked in New York Fashion Week for my first show ever and it was insane! I loved it, I got to meet hella people that love doing what I do and just the experience of the whole event was crazy. There’s so much that goes into these shows. Being on that stage makes you feel like a star. I wasn’t nervous during my walks but right before I came out, I got a little nervous just because I care about this a lot and I didn’t want to make any mistakes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a confident person but that was my first time ever doing something like that.
I chose to work with Brooklyn cloth because they are a well-established brand and have a good mix between street wear and more casual style clothes. Their jean jackets are my favorite pieces because the quality and I like the designs.
I have a good feeling that this is my last year living in Ohio, so I hope that in the next 3 years I’ll be living in LA or NYC. My goal is to find a nice space, and just be able to travel all over the world for projects, and eventually start my own business.
Since there’s not much to do here in Ohio I just hang out with my girlfriend and my friends. I dyed my hair neon green because it’s my favorite color, I want to do a neon pink once I’m tired of grey. I’m a picky eater, I eat the same 3-6 foods regularly, pizza being my favorite. All the jackass movies are my favorite, I love watching people doing crazy stunts.
