I have been so inspired to do a post on The Original Charleo for a few months now and I feel like now is fitting especially with the holidays peeking around the corner. What is The Origin Charleo you may ask, well to answer your inquiry, it’s the authentic and official Charleston clothing brand that speaks volumes in the 843 as a whole and has now taking larger strides to other states with the interests of celebrities rocking Charleo gear for all to see. I LOVE the love and exposure Charleo Clothing is getting.
I love it because this one dream and/or vision of an official clothing line that was cultivated by the founder or founders has brought unity and support to a culture (urban culture) and city of people that is hard as hell to get support and love from. The Charleston hip-hop and entertainment scene is one that you would have to know about to speak on. If you know anything about the hip-hop and urban music scene in Charleston you would know that unity and support of fellow artist is as cold as an Antarctic draft. Since The Original Charleo has launch I see and feel consistent love and support of the brand and a culture of people has finally pooled together to support their own through the love of being fresh to def and the culture of hip-hop.
Kulture Klash is a bi-annual arts festival in Charleston, SC put on every Spring and Fall. Their goal is to bring a new vision for local art, dance and music by combining traditional/conservative forms of display with more contemporary/modern designs to complete the thought of our theme “Kulture Klash”. They seek out the most interesting local and regional artists, mesmerizing dancers and body shaking musicians that they can find to bring something unexpected and unforgettable to the Holy City. The crowd consist of many many different diverse ages and “kultures” children, grand parents and everyone combines into one melting pot. Majority of the people that attend this festival are eco-friendly and always looking for a fresh approach to art, as well as seeing new things, meeting new people, and being themselves in this conservative southern town. Kulture Klash is like nothing in Charleston, some would describe it as a big city blow out in a small city scene, as many artist that can be found to represent the emerging and morphing styles and “kulture” that consist on the south east and beyond. dance troups, Brazilian percussionists, aerial acrobats, pro skaters, live painting & graffiti, belly dancers, hoola hoop girls and so so much more.
