Famous Instagram personality, musician-influencer, and entrepreneur Mickey Lacoste aims to take high-fashion streetwear to greater heights through his promising apparel brand, Section8. Featuring unique streetwear that goes hand in hand with today’s modern fashion trends, Mickey is determined to make his brand stand out among the rest.
Originally from Canada, Mickey moved to Los Angeles, California, in 2013, where he started producing beats for hip-hop artists. During these years, he was known as an online personality who first became viral from his videos in Vine and YouTube. On both platforms, he was popular for his comedy skits. Seven years later, his online presence still stands strong, with over 480,000 followers on Instagram today.
For as long as he can remember, he has always strived to become the boss of himself. He never really enjoyed working for other people and living a life based on other people’s schedules. Exploring his entrepreneurial ideas seemed much more enjoyable for him as well. When he started working independently, several established companies sought to work and collaborate with him and his brand. Throughout the years, Mickey has had several entrepreneurial endeavors that have been very successful.
The known comedy sensation is, indeed, a rising entrepreneur. Years ago, he started his own company for developing game applications, which reached more than 300,000 downloads in a short period. The success paved his way toward collaborations with famous stars such as Soulja Boy and Taylor Alesia.
In 2017, he established his high-end streetwear fashion line, Section8. The idea of the apparel line originated from his interest in fashion and clothing. Mickey has always loved the feeling of getting new clothes and flaunting new trendy fashion wear. His apparel collections were quick to rise. Several of its pieces were worn by famous music artists like Lil Xan, Lil Skies, and Trippie Redd. It was his connections with famous personalities that helped his brand become global.
The apparel brand features a high-profile vibe that borders on the exclusivity of its fashion pieces. Its private social media account has amassed over 150,000 followers anticipating more apparel updates.
Today, Mickey hopes to bring in something new in the fashion industry through Section8’s high-quality and high-fashion streetwear pieces. Being the first fashion line in the United States, which started the viral spikes on hoodie movement, the apparel brand is dedicated to becoming a game-changer in the fashion scene.
Not only does the brand feature sleek and high-end streetwear fashion with impressive designs, but comfort, sizing, and material quality are also important factors considered by Mickey’s team. The ultimate goal is to give people an outstanding fashion experience in all aspects.
In the future, Mickey hopes to create a one-of-a-kind warehouse where people can have unlimited fun playing sports like basketballs, go-carts, and more. He wishes to create a fantasy factory that not only houses his brand but also brings in a whole new level of fun for consumers.Learn more about Section8 through their site and Mickey Lacoste’s Instagram page.
