Sunday afternoon, Kevin “Trix” Bent debuted his new clothing line ‘Only In America’ to the public at a creative space in the arts district of Baltimore, MD. It was a concept born in 2012 when Kevin was incarcerated. During this time period Kevin felt like the world had turned their back on him, with only a handful of friends that kept in contact. The struggle to keep sane became a daily task and that is when Kevin began to reflect on one of his true passions, one being fashion. Kevin states that “Through the difficult adversities I kept a positive mindset and created my clothing line ‘Only In America’ for people of all cultures and for individuals who feel “incarcerated” in their own mind set. Whether it be mentally or physically when you remain positive through the your turmoil you can have everything you dream of. My personal story exemplifies how “Only in America” can you “loose it all” and gain back more than you could have ever imagined.”
Attendees, which included some of the top tastemakers in Baltimore, including event promoters, music industry individuals, fashion media and more enjoyed light fare, champagne and fashion forward music. ‘Only in America’ will serve as a way of life, a fresh outlook on life that men and women can strive to live. The line will feature select designs of t-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts. Each design has its own story and is truly a piece of art and when you put on a ‘Only In America’; garment a sense of confidence will come over you. The collection features pieces inspired by American Legends such as Andy Warhol to the true American Dream; being famous.
