Today we’d like to introduce you to Peejay King.
Peejay, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I’m peejay 26 years old from Compton, CA. Growing up I always have been an entrepreneur from washing cars in the neighborhood to turning my house into your local candy house. Oh! I can’t forget about selling snacks and lunch from middle school and throughout high school. I feel in love with the hustle when I first witness the game. See growing up. I use to shadow my mom and apply to be amazing at seeing everything see use to do. I’ve watched her open her on balloon + event party planning business, a barbershop, a daycare, T-shirt company and more. Her drive and hustle only motivated me to go harder than ever. I first fell in love with photography est 2012 and started my first business called LAsavage photography! Later in 2014, I fell in love with baking + making colorful treats and then started a company called Cupcakesbypeejay. But one of my most significant accomplishments is clothing LAsavage! I Started LAsavage back in 2012, but didnt get real serious about it until 2016. And ever since then, it is been taking off to the roof! I have had celebrities Young MA, BIG BOY FROM BIGBOY NEIGHBORHOOD, HENNESSY GIRLFRIEND, ERICA MEENA & SAFAREE FEATURED IN OUR CLOTHING + SEE BY MILLIONS PEOPLE.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
LAsavage is an urban clothing line based out of Los Angeles, CA. Why I started my brand was to give another look at fashion, another way to be different. I want my drive to be motivation to others that is possible to conquer your drives if you put the hard work behind it.
Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
The creative blocks especially when it is just me and I don’t have a team to ping pong brainstorm ideas off one another.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you?
We recently converted a bus into a mobile pop up shop. So soon we will have a mobile store front in the next month of two maybe. But you can also find us on instagram @lasavageee and on our website at www.LAsavageapparel.com
