Closet Conversations (Episode 2): Dwamina Drew


Set yourself apart, whether you’re a brand, whether you’re a person…or through clothing and how you dress and how you express yourself.


Episode #2 of Closet Conversations is here!

This time, I sit down with Dwamina Drew, streetwear aficionado and founder of Enstrumental Clothing. As previously mentioned on the teaser post, Drew’s style (and brand) is largely inspired by Hip Hop. His love and support for indie designers is quite impressive, and actually had me making a purchase from The Original David immediately following our interview.

Colorful prints, meaningful graphics and unique designs are prominent in Drew’s closet. However, it’s the narratives regarding his wardrobe choices and the concepts behind his Enstrumental designs that makes for some great storytelling.

    Dopeness! I love that you are exposing your readers to such a wide range of fashion and culture.

      Thanks, Corree! That is most certainly my goal. With Chicago being so diverse, I believe that my series has to reflect that.

    Ok, LOVED many things about this conversation with Drew. One is Rap-Lies=Hip Hop tee. Love that the original font was actually taken from an eight year old’s writing from a chalk board. And two, Love the concept behind the collaboration with Hebru Brantley. To see Martin Luther King actually standing in the photo was amazing!!

    Very nice!!

      Thanks, Andrea. I, too, enjoyed the story behind the Rap – Lies = Hip Hop shirts! Those kinds of background stories are what make Closet Conversations so interesting.

    OMG!!!! I really enjoyed this video. Drew was cool and I love his style. He wears his clothes well and I know this word is overused and maybe outdated but he’s got swag. You know I’m a hip-hop fiend so this video resonated with my inner B-girl, lol. Keep up the good work Nikia.
