Korean-American teenager, Devin Kang, is quickly rising up the ranks in the hip-hop community as one of the hottest stylists and fashion designers. Devin and his iconic style is being spotted not only with Korean rappers, but some of the biggest American celebrities as well.
While Devin is not a rapper himself, he’s become a fashion icon and heavily sought after stylist for some of the worlds most famous hip-hop artists.
His brand Konus, which stands for Kings of New Uniform Standards is being worn by top artists like Diplo, A$AP Tyy, Diddy, Rae Sremuurd, Bewhy, CJAMM and even Lee Hyori!
Through his passion for fashion and love for hip-hop, Devin has been bridging the gap between Korean and American artists.
Drawing inspiration for fashion by industry icons Alexander McQueen and G-Dragon, Devin now has offices London, Paris, Los Angeles, Japan, New York, and China.
When asked about his inspiration and path to success, Devin had this to say:
“[I] got my inspiration after being bullied, [believing] that there were other ways to take out my anger without having to hurt myself. I believe that I can take out my anger on designing clothes. I also just want people to understand that you don’t need to reach a certain age to be successful.” — Devin Kang
Now, the talented entrepreneur has started working closer with artists to create music that brings together his American and Korean roots. He has produced the song “Like Me,” a collaboration between A$AP TyY, Show Me The Money winner Bewhy and CJamm.
Devin has shared many photos with celebrities who enjoy Konus through his Instagram account. Many of the photos on his account were taken by his friend, a talented photographer by the name of David Tu Sun Song, who’s worked with popular celebrities such as Gong Yoo and miss A‘s Suzy.
