Retired Young Legacy Apparel
Born in Cap-Haitian Haiti, and raised in Broward County Florida
I started Retired Young Legacy back When I was in high school. It was just my friends and I wearing clothes we made because it looked dope to us but then everyone wanted it. We had started something, something big. Right there, that’s when the grind started and I knew what I wanted. I knew I was going to Retire Young. It’s surreal, crazy now that I look back on it, it all started off with a dream that was so out of reach. It was blurry, but slowly I started getting visions I started seeing the vivid picture and I started turning it into reality. The way I see it is anything can be done, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to, and you can’t give up. I always wanted to make dope clothing I just love it; I have that passion for it. Just seeing people wearing my clothes, my hard work makes me happy. That feeling really inspires me to keep going, because I came from nothing. My whole life has been hard, I've seen things, done things, lived through the struggle but I just grind to make it day by day. My dad was never really around. My mom was all we had. I remember her working hard to take care of us. My mom had three jobs just so my brother, sister and I could have food on our plates. "We Are The Struggle"
Back when I was homeless I had no money, no transportation, but I still didn't give up. I knew I was here for a reason and I had to keep grinding. I was going to make my dream a reality. Since it first launched RYL has developed very well, we have way more designer clothing than what we had before. We have T shirts, hoodies, joggers, bomber jackets, and currently we are working on dresses for women and are working every day to expand our selection. We have a lot in store for 2016 and just doing everything by myself can get really crazy but I’m never going to give up. I want to expand worldwide and I know there will be a lot of obstacles but I am ready.
As a kid growing up I always wanted to Retire Young. I mean that's everyone's dream it’s what America was built on but my dream isn’t just to retire young, but to leave a legacy. A Legacy for everyone chasing their dreams because we don't live forever and we all pass on at some time. So my goal is to make something that will. To make something for all the kids in the struggle, for all the inner city kids, all the trailer park kids, all the kids in low income housing and on the corners and stoops, no matter what they want to be. If they want to be rappers, skaters, models, play pro ball, doctors, teachers it doesn’t matter because we’re all going to make it
