Miro LaFlaga: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Consistency is everything

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a visionary and a tastemaker

Why do you do what you do?

There is a gap out here. No one wants to be the person who is going to open the door and inspire others to be themselves. Everyone is caught in their own selfish objectives. I am creating this world that everyone can partake in, if you're open minded.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I was always good at putting outfits together. Since I was in elementary, I was fresh dude. I never took much of it, until my boy Owo made me realize that putting outfits together was art and others will love to experience it.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Try to not be so hard on myself. I never find what I was doing was spectacular or anything, which caused me to second guess everything I did. I came to realize that shouldn't be the case, I got a great support team behind me to keep me focus.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

OMG! Theres so many. I can say Tupac, Bob Marley, Napoleon Hill, Malcolm X, Michael Jackson… just to name a few. I inspire a lot of people, which actually motivates me. I get inboxes and DMs from people telling me that I inspire them, I am so grateful for that.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Biggest mistake I made was relying on people to get stuff done. I realize the importance of being hands on with everything you do.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Right now I am working on a web series about building up outfits for the low. At same time, I will be still working with other artists to create look books and supplying outfits for videoshoots.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Whatever you are passionate about, chance it to the end. I know it can be very frustrating  at times because people can be dream crushers. Just continue and do not stop, destroy everything and master your craft.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I hate dad hats.
