(Black Voices) — Whether you call them Generation Y or “Millenials” or “The Internet Generation” the young adults of today are known for social networking, consumerism and their insatiable appetite for distraction. However, 21-year-old Phillip T. Annand is an example of the best of what these “plugged-in” young people have to offer. The Princeton, NJ native and Rutgers University student has already started his own successful street wear line and has launched a much talked about and groundbreaking lifestyle site called The Madbury Club. Recently BV spoke to this precocious and enterprising young man about his upbringing, motivation and how his identity informs what he does.
Let’s let everyone know who you are. State your name and what you do and what you represent: Phillip Toussaint Annand is my name I’m located out in Jersey, and I’ve done a few websites. I started doing street wear — I started with Award Tour doing a t-shirt line and that blew up got a nice little following — did some blogging for [lifestyle blog] Hypebeast and then branched off and started my own thing with Madbury Club and I’m kind of rolling with that right now.
