Carmelo Anthony’s career is coming to an end. Soon. Many reporters think that he has actually already played his last game in the NBA. And in a recent interview Carmelo Anthony talked about his focus on being a fashion icon.
What is it about fashion that excites you?
It’s all about being greater than dreams. Having a mind that continues to design and come up with new, great ideas. When it comes to sketching, it’s just more about who you are, right?
Why are you doing your own fashion line now?
When you do some collaboration with these other designers, a lot of times it’s their vision with a little bit of your salt and pepper on there.
But now with this, I have the opportunity to create and come up with these ideas and bring them to actual fruition. And people get a real understanding of what I’m trying to do and what I’m doing and just where the game is at now — the game meaning the fashion trends — in our society.
There’s so much direct-to-consumer, so I feel like that’s where I can step in there and kinda take advantage of it.
