Young, Black, and… Entrepreneur???

25 07 2008

I just wanted to give my brother from another mother, Michael “Red” Colbert mad props on the start of his business, Red Klothing. It is imperative that I shed light on successful minorities to help balance out all of the negativity that you see in the media. If you have you own business to be featured, hit me up with an email @ with some information and try to include a picture if you can. However, for the first installment I would like to promote none of than my family- Michael Colbert and Red Klothing. You have haute couture, not couture, provocateur (hey it rhymed) but this is custom couture!

   For those familiar with the color spectrum, you know that the frontrunner is the color Red. This order of importance still remains true with Red Klothing, the brainchild of Michael “Red” Colbert. Red Klothing was started in December of 2007 as an answer to the mundane options that are available in so called “fine apparel” these days. This brand boasts the motto, Fashion is Freedom and it does hold true to that. You can’t express yourself freely is everybody is rocking that same outfit or you can’t even afford it. This is where Red Klothing separates itself from the other labels out there. Michael was recently quoted in a recent interview about his brand saying, “I wanted to provide a way for people that didn’t have the money to get the expensive name brands and still be fresh to death when he/she steps out.” While always having the customer in mind, you can truly be original in every facet of your wardrobe with customizations ranging from color schemes, designs, and phrases. You can rest assured that you will have a one of a kind piece unless you do a group order. With all this creativity in one mind, you can only guess that the inspiration behind it is from various avenues such as Jay-Z, Ralph Lauren, 70’s and early 80’s era, as well as just living life. Mike has been known for gaining ideas from quotes, sayings, slang, poems, and music. With a fusion of art, music, and graffiti, Red Klothing puts the fashion designing in the customer’s hands further promoting Fashion is Freedom. So whenever you see the Red Robot do not think that you are receiving a square piece of regular apparel, you are being honored with the presence of a one of a kind piece of abstract art that you can wear! Red Klothing is unconventional and doesn’t play by the rules and by doing this you will soon see Red Klothing turn itself into a major label to be reckoned with.


Red Klothing on fashion:

  • To be fashion savvy you must have your own style and swagger. You can’t get this off a TV screen.
  • Your sneakers can make or break your outfit.
  • Your outfit should be fluid. Meaning it should flow. If it doesn’t match in style (we aren’t just talking about colors here), then please don’t step out of your house.
  • Please retire rhinestone name belts. It’s a no go.

Red Klothing on dealing with the haters:

·      The only reason they hate on you is because they lack the -ISM. They have no drive or self-determination so they always seem to fall by the wayside. They’re just the barnacles on the yacht. But I’m not complaining everybody who is SOMEBODY has haters.
