On April 21st, 2017, D.C. was officially “awakened,” with the launch of Meet the Curator (MTC), a new D.C. based athleisure and lifestyle brand aimed to encourage people to curate their lives how they see fit. The “Wake Up” serves as a symbolic representation of what made one take a leap of faith to go after their goals and dreams (i.e. what they pursue in their awakening of self).
The brainchild of founder, Kevin Nmah, “Meet the Curator” desired to create a brand that focused on people curating their lives how they see fit. In addition, he wanted to develop a line promoting originality and personal investment. Featuring primarily tees and hats, the MTC apparel is printed with taglines like “real > cool,” “get dat doe,” and “pay yourself first.”
The first 70 guests of the event received a Journal from the MTC team, to encourage them to write down their dreams/goals, and there was an entire wall dedicated for guests to share how they are currently (or would like to) curate their future.
“I wanted people to actually WAKE UP, WRITE DOWN THEIR DREAMS, and WORK like hell until they’ve achieved their goal.” – Kevin Nmah, Founder
The launch was showcased through a party at Bourbon restaurant, located in Adams Morgan (2321 18th St NW, Washington, DC, VA 20009, and featured music from DJ Brannu.
