“Now we have our own office space, a whole thousand-square-feet for us to do whatever we want,” says co-founder Daniel Buezo on a Zoom call with NYLON from the new Kids of Immigrants HQ in downtown Los Angeles.
Sitting next to designer and co-founder Weleh Dennis, the two are looking back at how their purpose-driven fashion brand has grown since the idea of Kids of Immigrants started ruminating in 2013 and officially launched in 2016.
“I love to say the 2013 part because we want people to know this took a lot of time, dedication, and learning,” says Buezo. “We learned from our mistakes, how to work with each other, and how to build [Kids of Immigrants] our own way and keep it that way.”
With a Vans collaboration set to drop on Friday, Oct. 2, Buezo and Dennis continue to stay true to their brand’s roots and budding community.
