Her campus crush at the time was a skater so she went to get his attention by wearing skateboard shoes like Vans and Nike’s Janoski. That was when she started to love and collect sneakers.

Hi Rachelle, could you share a bit about your secret origin story?

I’m currently a graduating Medical Technologist student and a Creative Director of Fawn (a clothing line based in Los Angeles). I’ve been a varsity volleyball player since elementary school and also play golf. I started to develop a love for sneakers when I was in middle school. When I was about 13 years old, my campus crush at the time was a skater so I want to get his attention by wearing skateboard shoes like Vans and Nike’s Janoski. That was when I started to love and collect sneakers. I started with the Nike Janoskis and from then on my passion for sneakers started to grow. My love for streetwear started after I begun paying attention to sneakers.
