Ikill is born of African, Native-American Cherokee, and French descent. He has a distinctive look and has an undeniable talent for developing masterpieces in music, art, and fashion. Growing up in the heart of New Orleans exposed Ikill to a diverse range of artistic and musical culture, consisting of rubbing elbows with music royalty such as The Neville Bros., The Marsalis (first family of Jazz), Trombone Shorty, Dr.John and ultimately led to many of his future entrepreneurial ventures. Mesmerized by the world of hip-hop, clubs, x rock –n- roll that accompanied it, Ikill became fascinated by developing ways to channel his teenage angst into meaningful purpose in deliberate fashion. These galvanizing influences that stemmed from a life like none other, were what created the visionary he is today and has fueled his desire to bring additional experiences presented through his unique lens, to the world.
Ikill’s newest project Neo by Ikill Orion:
is a beautiful partnership of vibrant color, powerful designs that tell a story, a tantalizing mix of art + culture that stem from today’s true individualists. The line came to be from an exclusive collaboration between emerging Japanese designer Hitomi Okuno and Ikill Orion and was designed to break boundaries and speak to individuals of all ages, races, genders, and preferences. It is a line that inspires individuality at its finest. The brand’s mission is to motivate individuals to tap into what makes them special and guide them on being true to who they are, which in today’s world has become a forgotten trait. Ikill hopes to bring back the genuine value of art and the desire to be creative, noting that in today’s world both are severely under-appreciated as a result of what’s commonly seen on social media.
