We’re inspired by people who make stuff happen. Doing what you love to do while shining a light on your community is what motivates us to brew #BronxBanner (especially when your community is The Bronx). And, that’s exactly what fashion influencer and social media entrepreneur, Diego Leon aka @DandyInTheBronx is all about. We say #RaiseYourBanner to Diego, a man that’s putting the Dandy in The Bronx.
Born and Raise in Hunts Point, Diego’s story starts off unexpectedly as a pre-school teacher, a career path he thought was his calling. Disheartened by the test-score driven education system, Diego decided to invest in what made him happy and a place where he felt he could spread some influence – fashion. Using social and digital media as his entrepreneurial launching pad, Diego has created a brand and lifestyle for himself that is at least partly based on the niche that is being Dandy in the borough least associated with it. So, head to dandyinthebronx.com to follow Diego’s journey, get fashion recommendations and to find a bit of inspiration.
