New York, NY (PRWEB) December 14, 2005
With only a year of success, URB1 Magazine has changed Hip Hop Fashion in many ways, predicting coming trends and lending a source of public views to designers both major and upcoming. For URB1 Mag's fifth and end of the year issue, it's going to be a stunning cover story that many would ask questions about.
"Yes, URB1 Magazine has been trying to get with the founders of FUBU for maybe a year now. After meeting co-founder Keith Perrin out in Las Vegas during the MAGIC Fashion Convention, he gave URB1 Magazine a chance to call him in New York, and Hip Hop Fashion History has been made now," said Rodrick Rainey, founder of URB1.COM and co-founder of URB1 Magazine.
URB1 Magazine promises this is one of the most intriguing interviews of the year in Hip-Hop culture, period. The cover story, an interview with FUBU co-founders Keith Perrin and Damon John, features information every Urban, Hip Hop, and general fashion entreprenuer should read and use as a reference for their future.
Going in depth about how FUBU started the interview also gives their education backgrounds, what they've used to understand the fashion business, how they've maintained a stronghold in fashion internationally, and much more that can help people see into what they are doing today.
"Financially, we are at this moment the number one brand in Korea and the number one streetwear brand in France. We have stores in South Africa and in Japan," is a response from Damon John to one question that surprised URB1 Magazine's staff members hosting the live interview.
"People don't properly recognize what FUBU did for Urban and Hip Hop fashion and music. Nor how big of a fashion trend they created. Even crazier, people think FUBU has declined in worth, while fact of the matter, from the owner's mouth, they are doing great sales annually and grown greatly in popularity internationally. There's much to be learned from Perrin and Johns. The knowledge they are passing is what URB1 is about. Educating, entertaining, and influencing trends as well as ambitions," said URB1 Magazine's co-founder in post-event comments.
Other features in URB1 Magazine's #5, Holiday issue includes Young Jeezy's coming clothing line USDA and what's been going on nationally with the "snowman tee", Tyra Banks retirement from modeling, the NBA's fashion requirements of players, and more.
