We had the good fortune of connecting with Darieus Freeman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darieus, we’d love to hear about a book that’s had an impact on you.
Social media has become a major outlet tool, like no other. Definitely has helped and define the landscape of advertisement. For all businesses alike from corporate, non-profit , & small entrepreneur businesses like me. It is , still okay to use the old school methods of advertisement. And getting the word out but, the social media platform is powerful . And it is up to date in the modern day age that we are living in. So I encourage everyone to take an advantage of it.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think it is important to be original but yet gain , inspiration and give credit where it do. Nothing life comes easy especially with original ideas and designs. That’s why it was important to me to elevate my art & education and graduate from the art institute of Michigan. It took a very long time for “DDH” to reach the platform .It take a lot of pain sweat and tears and a moment of hiatus. But, it just made the brand even stronger. Especially when we relocated to Houston, Texas in 2016. our brand is modern but yet rainbushes and traditional in the factors of the modern age of man and women clothing.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Houston is such a variety city it is hard to designate just one area lol. I would say go out and explore and navigate through the city I just go with the flow and have fun .

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I just want, to thank all my family and friends who supported me throughout the years. All the volunteers as well , and most of all of “God” without him none of this is possible truly.
