Being inspiring doesn’t have to be oh-so-serious. Chris Hudson and his Life’s Journey Clothing broke into the streetwear world with a sense of humor and witty sayings on Life’s Journey t-shirts, proving that a little smile goes a long way. As stated in Life’s Journey website, the vision behind the clothing is to make the wearers think about their future. So if you’re into inspirational designs to enhance positivity in life, the line is worth checking out. SoJones sits down with the young entrepreneur and here’s what he has to say about his streetwear line:
Introduce yourself and describe how your brand was started?
My name is Chris Hudson CEO and Founder of Life’s Journey Clothing. The idea actually came from constantly praying to God asking him what my purpose was on this earth. I always loved fashion and people but I have a huge heart to reach people and I felt that clothing would be a way of motivating people because clothing is an expression of your attitude.
Describe this season’s theme for your line. Include any sources of inspiration (examples: 80’s punk, muses like Amber Rose, 70’s disco bands, Kanye, etc).
The inspirations behind the summer collection’s pieces were to uplift the people and to inspire them. I felt the need to connect with the struggle of the people but to also uplift them throughout the journey they encounter in life. It was also to tell the people to keep striving towards their dreams but to enjoy life along the way.
Any product placements on celebs to keep an eye out for (examples: publicity photos, magazines, movies, music videos etc)
In my opinion everyone is a celebrity everyone has their own unique and individual talent. Everyone who wears our clothing is considered a celebrity in our eyes because everyone is great at something.
What has been a surprise fashion hit over the last year? (a particular piece, a look or even another brand)
I would say Johnny Cupcakes I have been following his brand for quite some time but I noticed that he has been extremely creative not only with his designs but with how he connects with his customers. He is a genius and his brand is very exceptional.
What current fashion trend would you like to see thrown overboard?
I would honestly say nothing, everyone has their own individual style so with that said everything has been great to me.
What is/was one of your most prized fashion pieces, past or present?
I would say my hemp authentic desert palm/black vans.
Tupac or Biggie?
They are both musical geniuses and each has a timely message but I have to go with 2Pac. With music and fashion going hand and hand I feel Tupac’s message appeals to what Life’s Journey is all about. Tupac was more about uplifting the people and relating to everyone’s struggle.
Life’s Journey Clothing is available to purchase on www.lifesjourneyclothing.com and the tees are very reasonably priced, ranging from $12 up to $20. Here are some SoJones-approved pieces:
