There is a quote that says, “If you want to go somewhere, it is best to find someone who has already been there. ~ R. Kiyosaki”
In the early stages developing ABLE ABE Clothing/Studios there was a huge learning curve that had to be addressed being there were numerous mistakes and over sights that just were not helping our progress in building momentum as a brand.
So we looked at other brands doing the things we would like to be doing, those which has inspired us, and those who were making real buzz in the industry. One of those people was Jeff Staple of Staple Design and Reed Space, not to forget to mention numerous other projects and collaborations.
He has become a great influence on ABLE ABE due to his view points on design, pop culture, hip hop, and keen business sense. Sometimes we find it is strange someone we’ve never meet clear across the country living on the Lower East Side of New York could be so influential to us here in California.
So what follows, is some video interviews featuring Jeff Staple in his own words telling his story, personal insights, which shows why he is such an influence on us at ABLE ABE Studios. Enjoy!
