NBA star Russell Westbrook talks to Bloomberg Pursuit,  about the troubles, and differences between making and breaking it in the fashion world.

Since becoming one of NBA’s most recognisable faces, Russell has now managed to create a strong and impactful movement into the fashion industry. Despite having a tasteful eye for high end and street-wear clothing, he never denied the struggle people go through making it in the industry.

Russell spoke some wise words about his journey from a well known athlete, to an influential fashion head. “You have to be committed to going out to meet different people, having your ears open, not thinking you know everything about fashion. The creative stuff, I think, comes from within.”

After talking of his struggle within fashion, Russell also gave us an insight into his life before fame, where he said “It’s important for me to stay close to my roots. I wasn’t always able to afford shirts that cost $2,000. I want to be able to relate to the people I grew up around, the people in my neighborhood, inner-city kids, anyone who wants to dress nice and might not have money. Mixing high and low gives people a sense of how to do it without spending too much.”.
