(Kicks and Chicks) — The founder of “FlyKickz” custom designing brand, Dez has been painting sneakers for years. Now expanding her career into clothing and modeling after gaining noteworthy attention at a variety of events, she’s ready to talk. Not only discussing sneakers, the exotic, 5″10 should have been supermodel, reps health, fashion, and art.
[Kicks and Chicks: Sneakers News Editor] We met at SneakerCon in 2009. At that point, you had not done any modeling pictures for FlyKickz. What made you choose to get in front of the camera and flaunt a bit of the exotic sex appeal you have for sneakerheads? [Hip Hop Models Weekly: FlyKickz Dez] A lot of the times when I’m at events standing by my table with all my kicks people will always ask me “So… who’s the guy that designs all the sneakers” every time I’d explain to them it was all done by me and the feedback was always cool. Since the beginning I knew I wanted to brand myself not only as the Owner of FlyKickz but the designer and model as well. I think at times its easier to put a brand with a face and I wanted to do just that by developing a creative visual approach. In the end, it was just about timing it right.
