Kids with Krowns in the Instagram Spotlight
Last summer we spent a week in New Orleans, catching up with friends and drinking daiquiris. We met Harold Hernandez at a bounce show one night. He told us about his streetwear brand Kids with Krowns, opened his bag and pulled out a dozen of his screen-printed tees and embroidered hats.
How did you end up running a streetwear brand?
I took the first steps to start my own brand at a young age. Back then, all I knew was that I wanted to wear my own designs. There wasn’t anything behind what I was doing besides ambition.
In middle school, I produced two lines that never became anything. I designed the logos by hand, brought them into local embroidery and print shops and they did the rest. I wore my creations and tried my best as a salesman. Years later, after starting and stopping numerous other lines, I now know how I want things to run.
