“IVL- soul of a hustler times a garment pusher with a flow of your 90’s-early 2000’s favorite rapper!” (You know when we used to listen to music, understood the words and there was an impeccable flow to match? Yeah that feeling!) This and more is the making of Brooklyn’s own L! From fashion to music he pretty much has it covered. So how did he get his start in the music business? What’s it like managing both a career in fashion and music? We have all that and more! When Justabrooklyngyrl Meets Mr. IVL.
“What inspired “Incredible Vision Ent”?
Since a teenager I always thought outside the box…when everybody was going right I would go left and it felt good… I would see and do things that people couldn’t understand and that’s when I knew I had Incredible Vision.
“What’s some of your musical and fashion influence?”
Musically of course the God, J-Hova, my man Fab, and for newer artist I’m loving Drake.
Clothing wise it wasn’t too many brands that influenced me! It was more so who wore it and how they wore it. The brands that I have to say had an influenced on me fashion wise was “Billionaire Boys Club”,” Ralph Lauren”, and probably anything that came out of Vinnies (lol)!
“Anyone you’d really like to collaborate with?”
“I would like to collab wit this old clothing line called Sergio Tacchini…love they’re tracksuits!”
“Did rapping come natural for you? Was it something you always wanted to do?”
“I always loved music. It wasn’t until I went away that I took it serious. First it was more of me just passing time and getting thoughts out my head…but the more I wrote the better I got!”
“You’re currently building your own empire! You’re the ultimate hustler with an incredible vision. What personal advice would you give to someone wanting to pursue this career?”
“NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!! No matter what people think or say stick your vision…Never dictate your moves off of what others have to say!”
“If you had to choose between a career in music or a career in fashion, which would it be?”
“I Probably would choose music because the fashion is just like my hobby. I just happen to be really good at it lol! But the music is something that touches me deep down in my soul…it doesn’t feel like work to me!”
“If you had to do it all over again, would you still choose this career? Would you do anything differently?”
“I always feel I was born to do something where I was a leader or pushing other people to be great. And with this brand and team that I have I’m doing just that…couldn’t imagine doing anything besides this!”
“What’s in the works for Mr.IVL in the fashion/music future ?”
“Musically I’m just cooking up of course trying to make that hit that’s going to take me to the next level and fashion wise I’m just thinking outside the box and bringing those ideas to reality!”
A dapper gentleman with a killer rap flow, a designer with a good eye for threads!
This is only for the movers, shakers and risk takers to understand!
