Christian Wigginton is on the come up.
Just yesterday we posted on how you can cop the now popular orange "Finesse" x "Tennesse" sweater Drake was seen wearing at the top of the week. The apparel was crafted by designer icantdecideyet who took old Univesity clothes and played with the lettering to make them a thousand times cooler. The man behind the brand, 21-year-old Christian Wigginton, has now spoken to Page Six explaining how Drake's outfit of choice paid his damn bills.
“Literally the hour before [the sweatshirt] blew up, I was like, ‘fuck, how am I going to pay my rent? I have orders to finish, and I spent all my money on supplies.’ So it was perfect timing,” he said. Christian send Drake's manager, Oliver El-Khatib, the sweater back in December. “I was just at home doing stuff around the house, and his manager sent me a picture. And then a minute later a hundred other people sent it to me, and that’s when my Instagram started blowing up,” he added.
Other stars such as Kevin Durant, Trey Songz and Justin Timberlake have shown love to Christian's clothes and he even has stores looking to carry his product. “I’m just trying to figure out how I’m going to get all the production done,” he explained. “I know I can do it, but I’ve never had to do that many orders in this amount of time. It’s blown up pretty fast and it’s really overwhelming, but exciting.”
