Bans explains the idea behind STAY GRATEFUL:

“This generation is so sick and full of amazing things but it’s also teeming with pressure; STAY GRATEFUL is a celebration of the good and a reminder to steer clear of any negativity, rise above it all and always be the best you can be!!! I also hope to highlight the mental health issues that youth face –  and offer some solace and support through art, fashion and music and by creating a community.
Ultimately my work is all about embracing who you are, putting love into everything you do and rocking some colourful garms because they make you feel happy.”
