Meet Q Anderson and Asya Washington of Underrated Co.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Q Anderson and Asya Washington.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Underrated Co. started two and a half years ago on February 16, 2017. Underrated Co. isn’t considered just a brand, but a lifestyle as well. Beginning from the life challenges of Q being undervalued and underestimated. With those challenges, he used that to create a brand and a movement. A movement to bring our community together to showcase and share a variety of crafts; dance, music, art and fashion.

Creating a space of positivity and encouragement amongst each other to continue and succeed. This platform we created creates opportunities for up and coming artists and established artists to network and create long-lasting partnerships. As of today, not only have we made a name for ourselves here in Los Angeles, but we have also made it across the Atlantic in Amsterdam, Paris, London and Hong Kong and still growing.

Has it been a smooth road?
Smooth road, not quite. We have solely supported our business from the beginning. People have definitely supported over the last two years but mainly its just us. Starting a new business is not easy but it definitely is an experience we wouldn’t change for anything. There have been many bumps along the way but the only way we grow is to go through those challenges to be able to succeed.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Underrated Co. the brand, we consider our style high-end streetwear. We sell items from basic t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts to custom one of one-pieces for anyone. We strive to create pieces that make any individual feel confident in anything they wear.

Underrated Co. the lifestyle creates platforms for our community to come together to share and inspire. Allowing people from all different types of artistic backgrounds to showcase, share and network with others. Something we are definitely proud of.

What sets us apart, all of our events are collaborations. As mentioned before bringing multiple talents together to put on a great event.
