What It's Like To Be A Minority In Toronto's Fashion Industry

At the onset, it was polarizing for me to take on the moniker of 'The Prep Guy'. When people think of prep, they think of the Kennedy compound or weekending in the Hamptons. Probably pretty far off from a brown guy from the GTA. Having brands pull out of deals after learning my waistline, or backing away from a partnership because I am not the traditional prepster they originally planned for, was definitely disheartening.
