The inspiration behind the INSIDE-OUT COLLECTION is "Living Imperfectly and Authentically Inside-Out". Because we all have imperfections and places where we've been ripped apart and sewn back together. But, instead of hiding them, accept them. Be courageously vulnerable. And proudly show your seams on the outside. Because our imperfections are what make us unique and beautiful. They are what make you authentically you. Make a personal pledge to be KIN(der) to yourself by living imperfectly and authentically Inside-Out.
Every INSIDE-OUT T-SHIRT and INSIDE-OUT DENIM will support a lower-income family whom I met on Skid Row. Every item sold will help fund nine months of food, rent, and necessities. During the nine months, the low-income family will also be given a fair-paying employment opportunity under KIN LOV GRA so they will be able to create a savings for themselves. Once the nine months expire, they will be able to sustain themselves out of poverty through the savings they will have created.

Guarantees Alberto an ethical employment opportunity + fair compensation.
VULNERABILITY <- THIS IS THE KIN(SPIRATION) BEHIND THE INSIDE-OUT COLLECTION.
“BE VULNERABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!” Even if it’s painstakingly difficult. Because there is freedom in vulnerability. Because there is authenticity in vulnerability. Because vulnerability is how we find the freedom to live more authentically INSIDE-OUT.
