WHO WE ARE

As seen in RARE Fashion Magazine…

Fashion Designer
Baqash Wilson

Konjo Collection

Born in the Bronx, New York, Baqash knew he would become a Fashion Designer when he began making his own clothes at the age of 12. Growing up the eldest of twelve children, there simply was not enough money to buy what everyone was wearing. He noticed even then, that every season people would run after the same fad or fashion that had flooded the market, even in the urban neighborhoods.

He asked, "Who decides what we will wear each year? I think I want to be the person who influences what my people will wear!" Upon graduating from High School he chose to major in Fashion Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and this formalized his education in the field.

Baqash has won several national design awards including the first New Day Designer of the Year, Canadian Club Designers Showcase and Golden Design Award. His merits as a Costume Designer have been seen on stage in local productions of Dream Girls, The Wiz, Evita and several others.
