Locs of Love: The Griggs Brothas

May 2, 2019

In 2017, I had the chance to meet Clayton and Chris Griggs at the Conde Nast Diversity in Fashion panel in NYC. Their unique, afrocentric flare captured the attention of the room. This is not even mentioning the fact that their locs were beautiful and there were TWO of them. These Washington DC natives are definitely paving a way in fashion through custom embroidery and design. They’ve had their hand in places such as Nike, Ralph Lauren,  LFANT, Adidas, Dr. Marten, Neiman Marcus and many more. And if you watch basketball, they are the designers for Kawhi Leonard. Super cool.

As practicing Rhastafarians, they live their life enjoying the natural beauty that comes with life; appreciating the world that God gave us. Their Locs are significant in this lifestyle. With peace and love at the forefront of their lives, The Griggs Brothas are truly trendsetters, not only in the lane of fashion, but living in the walk of peace and love.
