Our focus this week is on the word “purpose.” Every one of us is working towards something, be it getting through difficult times in life, chasing dreams or bettering ourselves at a hobby or desirable trait. In addition, we all have a sense of purpose; without it we lose our way and become demotivated, which is a great reason to have a friend or relationship partner to uplift your spirits when things don’t go as expected.

Art allows people to communicate their thoughts and feelings in a visual way. What’s so great about art now is that nobody cares to be the coolest anymore, were all just expressing the way we love to dress and doing it everyday from the heart. This is the reason why streetwear is forever an art practice.
