He would also work at Diesel Jeans for a while, where he would begin to gain some experience in the fashion industry. During this time he would also jostle around as a party promoter, where he could rub elbows with plenty of up and comings in the Los Angeles area, which would lend him the social connections to get funding for his own projects, as well as friendships with both performers and fashion makers (including the founder of high end shoe brand Android Homme). During this time, he’d also get into religion, going through Bible studies where he would eventually come upon the name of his brand, Fear of God also known as FOG.
Reportedly, this was chosen as it was an interesting dichotomy, where those who don’t know God may be afraid due to the threatening appearance, and those that do fear His greatness. He would open this brand in 2012, on the heels of the birth of his son, and rather quickly gain a company co-signer by way of Kanye West.
