Today I have a fun post to share with you!
Last Thursday, I went out to Velocity Denim to meet up with a friend and fellow creator, Rob Brown.
If you have followed my blog for a while, you'll know that my friendship with Rob (Reasons) goes back a few years now. We have collaborated several times and we were able to meet up Thursday to talk about future plans!
We met up at Velocity Denim where Rob works, which is located in the Charlotte Premium Outlets. I was able to look around the store a bit and it really is a vibe!
The store itself has a very neat, clean-cut aesthetic about it, neatly displaying several racks and shelves worth of sweatshirts, jeans, graphic tee shirts, and hats. The music playing in the background really sets the tone for a bit of shopping. Not to mention the staff there is always friendly and engaging.
But while it is a denim boutique by day, it takes on a new life at night! Sometimes that is! It is part of Rob's plans to bring more light to the store as well as get creative people in the community together and involved.
Velocity Denim has already hosted a meet and greet with Jalen Santoy (@jalensantoy on Instagram) a singer, rapper, and songwriter from Charlotte, back in early January.
Rob plans to continue to host more events like that from the store!
Another event he is planning for is called Velocity Vibes, in which a music video countdown would be hosted live from the store.
Rob and I conversed about other ideas of different events that we could come up with and promote for Velocity Denim, including style sessions, sip and shops, and styling through the use of games -you're going to have to come partake to see what I mean on that one! ;)
This was just a piece of our hour long conversation! I felt like we came up with some solid ideas and I left feeling so inspired and ready to get to work.
But for now, I hope you are feeling just as inspired as I am! I hope you stay tuned and come out to see what we do with Velocity Denim! Thank you so much for reading! And special thanks to Rob Brown and Velocity Denim for the opportunity to collaborate!
