"I'm American-Haitian. Growing up in Brooklyn, I wanted to see my roots. And seeing the Haitian immigrants come to this country and really make something for themselves and for their children really gives me the motivation to be ambitious, to want to do more." - @joekenneth_

Know your roots. As first-generation Americans we come from those who crossed borders, oceans, and migrated across countries to find a better life. Our goal in creating Tailored Heritage has always been to have a platform which conveys the beauty found in stories as diverse and meaningful as ours. We create, and in doing so look to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Becoming more humbled and grounded after each experience.

What compels you to create? When we take photos we find something that is interesting to us and we capture it. It's the search for the most intriguing part of a subject that comes to tell a story. And what we search for in our creation helps us discover more about ourselves.

{ a conversation with @thewhooligan }

Pressure is a privilege because it means there is something expected of you. If you are experiencing some sort of pressure, from clients, suppliers, employees, your employer, family, friends, your spouse, children, neighbours, teachers, mentors, coaches, or from anyone, there is a high likelihood it is because there is an expectation of you to ‘perform’ – to take some kind of action producing an anticipated outcome.

A scenario where you are free from any and all pressure will probably not enable you to produce your greatest results. Likewise, a scenario where you are overwhelmed by a crushing degree of pressure will not enable you to be your best. Each of us has a different capacity for handling pressure so we are all motivated by differing degrees of it.  We all share one reality though; there is a certain degree of pressure that does cause us to perform at a higher level than if we were left to our own devices.

Regardless of who we are and what we do, let’s shift our perspective on pressure from being something from which we want to be freed, to a gift enabling us to be better. Pressure is an indication we have others depending on us to be the best we can be. And, they are doing so because we have previously proven we have what it takes.

I finally picked up my film camera a few months ago and am absolutely loving the experience. I tend to have a "trigger-finger" when shooting w/digital cameras, so switching to film has taught me a lot about patience. Appreciating the moment for what it is and letting the journey itself be my guiding light. ~ @u_issa

What we create is an extension of ourselves. Realizing that we have the power to author the narrative of our lives is both empowering and scary. It's empowering because if we employ self-awareness, we can take control of our narrative and write our story no matter our circumstances. It can also be a scary thing because for the first time we will have to take responsibility because the path is not laid out for us, we are creating it for ourselves. This is a discipline that we struggle with everyday. With so many pressures in life it can be easy to get distracted from the fact that we're our most powerful ally and enemy. At the end of the day we are the only ones that can take control and create the life we want.

How do I guess at the future? The secret here is in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve upon the present, what comes later will also be better. Forget about the future. Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity. — The Alchemist by @paulocoelho

"Great achievements can't wait for perfect conditions." - Heard this quote a few days ago and I immediately thought of people around me who are hustling to make their dreams come true. Working two jobs and then going home to focus on their passions, or living in the garage and putting in work 18 hours a day. It reminds me to keep moving forward, no matter what life throws my way. The journey is what makes everything worth it, so I'm just doing my best to trust my gut and embrace the uncertainty.

Museo Soumaya // Mexico City is known for having some of the best museums not only in Mexico, but in the world. Just from being there for a few days I got the impression that an appreciation for world class art and history are a central part of culture here which make the city unique and unlike any other. #tailoredheritage

Global Community // I met Esteban at his studio in Mexico City. The beauty of @instagram is that it allows you to connect with like-minded individuals from around the world. Although I never met him before, he showed me what he has been working on with his latest collection for @readytodie . Esteban created this brand out of a love for streetwear and the desire to have the perspective of Mexican fashion design on the worlds biggest stages. We spoke a little about the youth culture scene in Mexico City and the contrast that the city presents in terms of how many diverse narratives are present all at once. Please check him out and look out for more from him in the near future! #tailoredheritage

Visited the historic Azteca Stadium for a tour and the U.S. vs. Mexico game that ended in a 1-1 draw. The craziest thing for me was the crowds energy and love for their country. Even though the U.S. is considered Mexicos biggest rival in soccer, every Mexico fan I interacted with approached me with respect and a great curiosity about who I was and how much I was enjoying my trip. #tailoredheritage

Had the chance to take a short trip to Mexico City this past weekend. I was beyond inspired by the city as I got to meet some like-minded creatives and venture around this giant city full of history and so much life. Will be sharing some moments and stories from this trip soon but in the meantime you'll have to settle for this portrait. ~ @m.alexander_ // #tailoredheritage

Part of why we created TH was to always commemorate the quality and values of the past so we can create with meaning today. #tailoredheritage #unfollowthecrowd

Doug Aitken // "Mirage presents a continually changing encounter in which subject and object, inside and outside are in constant flux. The ranch-style structure suggests a latter-day architectural version of manifest destiny, a primary structure rendered by the artist without function service or texture. With every available surface clad in mirror it both absorbs and reflects the landscape around in such ways that the exterior will seemingly disappear just as the interior draws the viewer into a never-ending kaleidoscope of light and reflection" #tailoredheritage

{ literary study, vol. ii }

Humans are storytellers. It is our nature to make up stories, to interpret everything we perceive. Without awareness, we give our personal power to the story and the story writes itself. With awareness, we recover the control of our story. We see we are the authors and if we don't like our story, we change it. — The Four Agreements by @donmiguelruiz

Always moving forward. // In order to grow we must embrace the unknown. Be comfortable with change and understand that you never lose. You win or you learn. Over the last year as a trio I think one of the biggest things we've learned is that success comes to those that have patience. Patience with ourselves and the process of chasing dreams is important as it allowed us to not sweat the small stuff and just focus on enjoying each moment for all it was worth. Style Portrait taken by our friend @amaraabbas . #tailoredheritage

I finally picked up my film camera a few months ago and am absolutely loving the experience. I tend to have a "trigger-finger" when shooting w/digital cameras, so switching to film has taught me a lot about patience. Appreciating the moment for what it is and letting the journey itself be my guiding light.
