What people are saying about Corey




Corey is intuitive, self-motivated and directed towards achieving his goals. In addition to being the brains behind the company, he has been the artistic force behind shirt designs, the company’s websites, and our lookbooks.


I’ve known Corey Wesley in a professional capacity for three years. We’ve had the opportunity to collaborate on various fashion and media projects. More recently, Corey served as a guest speaker for two of my fashion and marketing courses. Mr. Wesley presented a well-prepared overview of what it takes to be successful in the fashion industry. Mr. Wesley’s professionalism, positive energy and natural charisma left the students intrigued, encouraged and motivated to become successful fashion entrepreneurs! It truly was an amazing experience!


Corey Wesley is a phenomenal person with a vision to make a difference in the world. He’s not afraid to speak up, give his candid opinion or to appeal to his readers to live a positive life. It’s my pleasure to work with Corey.


I have known Corey Wesley for about three years, his smile, his energy and commitment to getting it done is awesome!
