I am a avid blogger on Tumblr.com. No, I’m not an addict but I love the website because I find new and interesting things on a daily basis. That’s how I found Mint Crew. A fresh and upcoming clothing group that is about to take LA by storm!
Based out of California, three (now) teenagers came up with the idea of calling themselves the Mint Crew. When they started putting it on shirts and making a profit is about the time it became a realistic dream to the trio. I did an interview with Mint Crew for an exclusive play by play of their journey into the fashion world.
Q: So where are each of you from?
Max – Los Angelos, CA.
Orcino – Temecula, CA.
Darryl – Alhambra, CA.
Q: So what exactly do you do within and outside of Mint Crew?
M – I do the resources and the marketing. I’m also going to school undecided for now.
O – Marketing, shipping and I’m going to school for Business Administration.
D – I am the designer and I’m going to school for Fashion.
Q: Who came up with the idea and when did it become a reality?
All three: It just happened. When we became popular.
Q: How long has Mint Crew been around?
D – Since we’ve been born (laughs).
Both Max and Orcino – Since February 2011.
Q: Who and what inspires your style?
O – Pharrell Williams inspires my style.
D – If I look at something and like it it inspires me. ASAP Rocky and Loud Clothing also inspire me though.
Q: What’s the favorite part of your job?
Darryl and Max – When people buy our items!
O – Traveling to LA, even though its not that far!
Q: What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard so far since starting Mint Crew?
M – “You inspire me.” It’s weird to hear people say we inspire them.
It looks like Mint Crew isn’t all that used to their success! It’ll come in time though.
Q: What’s the best advice you could offer someone in your position?
M – Don’t second guess yourself. Just have fun.
O – Don’t overwork yourself and have goals.
Q: Anything we should look out for in the upcoming months?
All three – Five Panel Hats.
Q: Last comments/words?
D – Do what you do.
M – Be who you are and don’t let people tell you that you can’t do something.
O – Mint is not only a clothing brand we are also a family.
