Haitian born and Brooklyn raised since the age of 8 years old, founder and head designer of the urban clothing line “Fashion Trap” Carl M, is a true believer that one really can control his or her own destiny in life, by taking nothing for granted and seizing every opportunity that comes along. The confirmation of starting his line is based on his ability to create, his desire to connect with people and that he just wants to influence the industry by speaking a language that everyone can understand. He defines fashion as an art, a dialect of expressing himself and the way he cultivates relationships with others.
Fashion design is not a career to Carl, it is a passion and a purpose to create a vision, turning that vision into reality and sharing it with everyone around him. Everyday, just by walking the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn, Carl is influenced by all the people he sees, their personalities and their style. SOHO, Meatpacking, Tribeca, 7th ave along with the internet and social media, is where Carl frequents the most, for his inspiration and to keep up to date with the current trends, only to work on his own interpretation of those trends as well.
When asked about his personal style, Carl equated his style to the equivalent of the “Boy Band”. He has many styles and doesn’t like to be labeled under any particular type of genre. Depending on his mood for that day, his style could be that of a rock-star, urban, and or preppy look.
Carl’s hard work, and dedication to his craft and his line is very impressive. I, along with the rest of our readers are looking forward to seeing what else he is going to bring in this fast-paced ever-changing industry of ours.
