Covering TOM* Toronto Men’s Fashion Week provided us with the absolute privilege of getting to meet several innovative brands, one of which was the wonderful Ocean Rebel. We also had the pleasure of interviewing its founder, Angela Farid.
The brand’s deep passion for the ocean, freedom, and seeking new territory is fused in everything that they do. By merging streetwear and sportswear inspired by the ocean and an athletic lifestyle, this label brings luxury to casual wear.
The most impressive part? Angela developed the brand in 2008 as an after-school hobby at the age of 14! When we interviewed her, she mentioned that her love for fashion, mixed with her commitment to push the boundaries was what inspired her to create Ocean Rebel. She never wanted to be a cog in a machine, and, indeed, she is the complete opposite now.
During Angela’s first official release of her Fall/Winter Collection 17′, Ocean Rebel was selected to showcase during New York Fashion Week. And, needless to say, the brand put on a stunning show at TOM*.
Check out Ocean Rebel and be sure to let them know that Unprecedentedly Chic sent you.
