NO: Thank you for being a part of our November Luxe Man special issue. This month we are highlighting Men’s fashion, health and fitness, and lifestyle. Can you tell our readers a little about yourself?
NO: Men’s fashion has been making a huge comeback and impact in society over the past year, why do you think that is?
DW: believe men’s fashion is making a comeback because this generation of men want to look and feel their best this generation also embraces fitted clothes versus generations of the recent past.
NO: In what way do you feel the “Black Man’s” style has influenced the fashion industry?
DW: There’s nothing like a black bag swag it’s a special edge & class the black man offered to the fashion industry
NO: What designers have influenced your style of any?
GDW: Giorgio Armani has influenced my style lately I believe they have the most timeless Menswear looks
NO: The climate in the world today is at an all-time high of people showing more hatred. What are your views and thoughts about it? What do we need as a community to improve it?

NO: As a black man in today’s society, what can you tell the young men who are seeing all the hate and racism? What advice would you give them?

NO: If you were able to have a 10-minute conversation with Kanye West, what would you tell him?
