WHO IS JUSTIN BOONE?
Born and raised in the Washington, D.C., growing up in Fort Washington, MD, I have grown a love for style no matter the lack of inspiration surrounding me. I learned how to draw inspiration and influence from outside sources through my mother, and highly acclaimed costume designer, Johnetta Boone. My passion for fashion and style didn’t come until much later, as I developed unique qualities within my personal style and preferences. My initial passion developed into photography as I began studying streetstyle images from various fashion weeks, looking for inspiration and diving into the infinite possibilities of style. I wanted someone to take my pictures, and instead learned how to take photos myself.
I migrated to Atlanta, GA in 2014 by way of film/television, working in the costumes department on various TV Shows and Feature Films alongside my mother, Johnetta. Many people felt I had it easy, and that it was a no brainer to stick within the confinement of the film industry to make my name, but I always felt my purpose lied elsewhere. Between my personal style and streetstyle photography, people found inspiration within my work, and then I knew exactly what I was supposed to do. This blog is a platform of inspiration for those of fashion and style influence, as well as an opportunity for collaborations and networking.
