We get love out here πŸ“πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ€.
i wanted to share this photo today because this dude expressed insane genuine love and interest in the garment he's holding, so much that i just decided to give it to him. the shirt he is holding has a back design which i posted recently that reads "when losses become wins".
refer to my previous posts to see which design i'm talking about. moving forward i had went home to smoke and ended up falling asleep for four hours lol. when i got back to the event this kid was standing by my rack so i approached them and he was like "duuuuude we've been waiting hooours to see who's clothes these were!!!". it instantly lit me up inside and made me feel really good, and we then proceeded to discuss what the brand represents much to his delight. i had also received a message from the organizer of the event saying "where are you at a lot of people are asking about your clothes and your booth." for the last three hours that i was at the event i got to meet a handful of people who expressed genuine love and interest in my design, representation, perspective on life and how i was able to communicate all of that through quality clothing with a focus on "words". at the end of the day yesterday was one of the best experiences i've ever had and a memory i'll hold close to me forever. thank you so much to @marvinconanan and @saraaamartinez of @purveyr for the opportunity to share my story with people who would appreciate it the most. your passion and hard work doesn't go unnoticed! this was my first pop up experience off island, and it won't be my last. today i'm more inspired than i've ever been and we're just days away from the actual release of my holiday'17 collection. to be in a foreign land and to have received this much love for my ideas further solidifies in my own mind at least that i can actually do it big with this vision of mine. i promise to stay true and never take these blessings for granted. this is only the beginning of my underdog story. from a dot on the map to the rest of the world.

recap πŸŽ₯: @vinceus0n
just wanna say thank you so much to everyone who attended my @kehlani concert last week. it was definitely one of the most enjoyable projects i’ve ever had on my table and i just gotta give it up to god today for giving me the guidance and strength to make ideas of this scale a reality for guam. i always say the best thing about what i do is the people i get to do it with and from my immediate team to kehlani’s team in collaboration it hardly felt like work and it felt more like we just had some really good friends fly in for a show and we just took care of em’ and shared our culture the best we could.

we kicked off summer 2018 in a legendary way and this ones in the books forever guys. growing up i’ve always been fascinated with history and to take part in producing work that will be remembered on guam forever is priceless to me. now that i’ve fully got this last project out of my system i can focus on my next two plays for the summer. more announcements soon. if you’re reading this and aren’t following me already feel free to join me on this journey. everyone’s invited, we’re bridging the gap between guam and the rest of the world and i couldn’t be more excited. not everyone on guam might like this idea but i do it for the people like myself who want to be a part of the modern world. a world so appreciative of the arts. a world where because of this cellphone i could connect with friends in all corners of the globe and make a name for myself and my people. have you realized how amazing it is to be alive today? this much free access to the world could lead to your downfall just as much as it could change your life in a positive way. play it smart, i believe in you! & i’m here for you always to the best of my abilities. let’s keep going #csws #cantstopwontstop #thenativeworldwide #nowyouseemedia #guam

A special appreciation post for hertz guam! through our troubles with trying to find vehicles to rent for the show, they have been the most helpful and kind rental car company we have come across thus far. if you’re looking for any type of car to rent; hertz guam should definitely be on your list of choices. thank you hertz guam!

tee is from our last collection, designed by @whoisjparadise. tee is called "where is my mind" is sold out and features phrases like "we are not the same" "can't stop won't stop" "selfmade" " vision in progress " and more.
.
for future reference starting with our last collection we decided to only sell our garments for 1-month before we discontinue whatever else is left. to us it's less about selling product to reach quota but more about creating things people will appreciate and hold onto forever. things that become worth more overtime. thanks for all the love. next collection coming soon🌴

Spent a couple hours listening to the ocean yesterday. watching the waves crash as i took some time out to reflect. looked as far as the horizon would let me and felt good inside. it's as if on the islands this is how we speak to the universe. i took the photo in the center and fell in love with the balance it brought me. am i rooted like the plants? happy, safe and secure but with nowhere to go? or am i like the ocean constantly moving, ever changing. the unknown feeling of what lurks beneath the surface scares me and excites me at the same time. is this my new favorite metaphor for life? who knows, but i hope you could take a second to reflect on your own life and question where you stand because there is no in between. sitting on the edge of an island thinking about all of this has brought me so much peace. can you imagine that i live on an island but rarely get this close to the water? it's time i start embracing this blessing, and that i make more time to appreciate it. i've always felt that being an islander has given me so much drive to do it big, like they do in the city. i also believe that in the city, they dream of being on an island in paradise. it's a weird trade off but being here on guam, and having a u.s. passport is the best of both worlds. i have no limits other than those i place upon myself. life is so dope, and i'm learning to appreciate the little things every day. i read a book a few months back called the alchemist by paulo coelho and it spoke of the omens which are basically signs from god. today i look at everything differently than i did several years ago and it's this kind of mental progression that excites me. my body will wear out overtime but my mind will never cease to expand unless i let it. i want to spend the first half of my life working hard, taking risks and acquiring it all, and the other half giving it all away. the knowledge, the experiences the stories that may motivate the next guamanian with a dream. i don't have life figured out, but if i ever think i do i'll let y'all know. for now happy mothers day, god bless all women in the world who push us to love ourselves and to go farther than we think we can.

i called this garment "when losses become wins" representing a shift in perspective i had in life not too far away from the time i created this. really just started to feel like every negative experience was a blessing in disguise the moment i started to focus on (learning) from those mistakes. this collection along with every other one i produce in the future will only be available for 1-month before we discontinue selling it forever... next drop coming soon, and i'm going to be experimenting with some new mediums too. excited to share my vision with y'all soon. man, big thanks to everyone who got their hands on this piece too. wearable art, that's how i look at this. thanks for supporting!!!! fashion is an extension of who you are. you look at my clothes and i want you to feel inspired to do something bigger and better for yourself. my product is here so we could proudly wear our angels and demons on our sleeves. why promote negative thoughts you might ask? well, were all human and i know that we all battle similar thoughts everyday. idk what you go through, but my clothing is also a mirror of what i've gone thru and continue to go thru on the daily. @thenativeworldwide is for everybody with a vision and the guts to pursue it regardless of skin color or the language we speak. fashion is a universal language and through my clothes i want to represent any individual with the ambition to be better everyday, to pursue their wildest dreams and to at the same time accept and own up to all their faults and failures. i say these things and very often feel like i'm talking out my a*s because i don't usually feel understood...but here's to content being here for our grandkids to see, and i truly believe that as long as i never give up on my vision one day we'll break through and one day the 🌏🌍🌎 will understand. for now, i'm in my own world and you're more than welcome to join me and kick it with me on this journey. love and respect, thank god for another day. i am unapologetically myself.

Good morning manila πŸ†πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­.
.
i love this city; other than guam there's really no other place i've ever been to that makes me feel more at home. im half filipino, a quarter spanish and a quarter native american indian but i was born in guam and because i never met my biological mother i was raised by a chamorro woman since i was 5 years old. my grandpa relocated our family to guam in the mid 90s after he had gotten a job on island as a construction worker, and by some miracle he was later permitted to stay and bring his family. my dad tells me that my grandma was the first entrepreneur in our family. she basically hustled and sold a bunch of s**t on the side to support her six kids while my grandpa made what he could working in construction. i grew up watching my dad run his own small operation too, and that man is my hero if i've ever had one. i was always paid less than minimum wage lol, so i had to work harder for what i wanted, and today i'm so grateful to know what it's like to work hard for a couple bucks. he owns a janitorial company and so i grew up cleaning windows, taking out trash, sweeping huge parking lots in the hot sun, cleaning carpets, scrubbing toilets and cleaning entire households after tenants would move out. to be real it's pretty grimey work, but it was the environment i grew up in and i never questioned it. at the end of the day we always had a roof over our head, and food in our mouths and some people in the world can't even have both of those basic necessities at the same time..we're blessed and i'd be happy to remind people about that every day. everyday i wake up with intentions to retire my parents and take them around the world. these are dreams money can buy.
.
it's a beautiful day in manila, and i'm going to do my best to make the most of it. out here you really get to experience poverty in person.. back home in guam we don't have many people on the streets but i do believe that we are pretty poor in opportunity. i appreciate you for supporting my journey, because of you i woke up today and took this picture. i'll always be grateful ~ i knew i always had it good but i never thought life would be this good..let's get to work.

I’ve been traveling as often as i can, and i’ve been expanding my mind everywhere i go. the us dollar, japanese yen and philippines peso have been a frequent sight, but this graphic design i call:
dreams money can buy ( asia ).
which i designed last september represents a certain vision i have been sharing with all my creative friends in guam, japan, the philippines and now with you.
.
my theory is that asia is about to b**w the f**k up, and that if you’re a creative and or entrepreneur out here it’s never been a better time to risk it all to get ahead. i’ve been noticing everything from stateside business, tech, music, and fashion making a serious shift towards asia…america is getting mad played out, and i believe that asia is somewhat untouched territory creatives and entrepreneurs alike from around the world are going to hit hard in the next 3-5 years.
.
one example i talk about is how keith ape dropped “it g ma” in 2015 and ignited this new wave of mainstream global interest for asian rap/hip-hop artists. rich chigga dropped “dat $tick” in 2016 and since then both artists have opened the door for others in the region. looking at things in a competitive standpoint selling out shows across america has been done countless times possibly making asia or europe the next lucrative place to be. western influence is huge out here, and people are literally buying into the scene more than ever before. something is brewing out here, and i’m watching big players make moves to introduce new concepts and flagship stores in the area. in my eyes “the market” is “getting there”, and it’s really just a great time to build a foundation in asia before the world crosses over completely.
.
for guam based creatives take advantage of the fact that all of this is happening in your back yard. to put things in perspective for the price i'd pay for (1) ticket to san francisco i can buy about (10) round trip tickets to manila or at least (4-5) tickets to japan. stop buying dumb s**t and seriously just catch those flights and keep hustling.
.
asia is the next big thing, and it's your time to shine ~

Back on road!
.
today marks 1-week since i brought jhené aiko to guam for my first outdoor concert..
with just 2-weeks to promote such a large show that was also scheduled to take place on a monday it was obvious that the odds were stacked against us.
in the end and with over 2200 people in attendance the concert turned out to be a huge success for my community, my team and i.
we learned a lot and are already working on the next big play. word on twitter is i might bring kehlani next, but hey nothing is legit until i make an official announcement πŸ˜‰.
.
i wanted to take a week off sharing content to focus on a bunch of other things. i get this whole storytelling thing is important for "content creators" but i'm just naturally so accustomed to living that i often forget to think about curating a few words to share with y'all.
i want to keep you guys close with me on my journey, but i'm just still trying to develop the right habits here.
i'm just being transparent...as great as life may seem i'm human and still learning my way, just like you.
.
today i am back in manila for a good (11) days with a full agenda to connect with friends for business and to get back on track with the production of my next full cut n see collection. i'll be sharing as much as i can on my feed, but i guess for the more in-depth stuff stay tuned to my ig story as i'll try to be posting my current doings as often as possible.
.
guys, the last 2-weeks have been the most stressful and demanding time of my life. i hadn't gotten over 3-hours sleep per night working on the jhené aiko concert. still, i always have to remind myself that this is what i wanted. as we get to new levels in life it's good to know that things won't ever get easier...unless of course you stop growing. being challenged is a good sign that you're on the right track. your wildest dreams were never meant to be easy to achieve, and it's doing the things that are easy to do that are also easy not to do that make the biggest impact in our day to day lives. i pray that you all take consistent little steps towards finding your rhythm and purpose in life today. don't quit, i repeat dont quit; your dreams are more than worth it.
