Growing up in South Florida, Kenny G always had a love for music and fashion. He turned his dreams into reality. Kenny G was apart of a Hip-Hop crew called “Get Some Crew,” which sold over one-million albums. In 2008, Kenny G launched SillyWillySays. Patrick Peterson, Michael German and MMA fighter Debo are just a few celebrities who were seen rocking tee shirts from the SillyWillySays collection. For the Spring/Summer 2012 collections, we can expect more affordable clothing with a quality look. All of SillyWillySays shirts are sold in recyclable cans. I recently interviewed Kenny G. We talked about his clothing line, inspirations and of course, the empire he is building. You can order some of SillyWillySays tee-shirts and hats online at SillyWillySays.com. Peep my interview with Kenny G below:
What inspired you to create a clothing line?
My love for fashion is the reason why I started SillyWillySays.
What is the inspiration behind your clothing line?
Recycling, my love for the earth and saving trees.
How did you come up with the name of your clothing line and why did you chose to name your clothing line SillyWillySays?
I was promoting a party and needed a cool way to get the word out about my party. Since I’ve always been in the entertainment business mostly as a rapper, I would come up with catchy hooks, so I kept repeating names that rhyme and SillyWillySays was cool and very ear catching.
How do you come up with the slogans for the shirts?
Most saying are from things I see everyday or hear someone say that don’t make sense, funny or catchy.
How long have you been in the fashion industry and when exactly did your clothing line launched?
I have been doing this for about 3 years and we have always been a huge local brand. We launched worldwide June 2011.
