Today we’d like to introduce you to Ty Hamilton.
Ty, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started the brand 199$crilla in late 2013 with a few close family members. I taught myself how to cut and sew to make things for myself, but it caught so much attention that I decided to start a brand to share my talents with the world. Over the years, we have grown our team as well as following by doing photoshoots and local fashion shows. We even started our own annual fashion show in December titled ‘$crilla After Dark’, and we’d love to see you guys there!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Not at all! A quote from a Nipsey Hussle interview can sum that question up best for us. “We went through every emotion to get here, but we didn’t quit!”
What do you do, what do you specialize in, what are you known for, etc. What are you most proud of as a company? What sets you apart from others?
We started off as just a clothing brand, but have recently grown into a manufacturing company for others, hosts for events, and we even manage models/artists. We are mostly known for our clothing though, our attention to detail and quality sets us apart from the rest. I can say that I am most proud of the growth, we seem to get new fans and customers every day.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Throwing our first and very successful fashion show ‘$crilla After Dark’.
