Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 5th, we will be profiling every student participating in the YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Ayinde Thomas and Haysten Perez, Founders of Reverse Regime.
Reverse Regime is a streetwear brand fashion that caters to young, urban people who are on a budget. Co-founders Ayinde Thomas and Haysten Perez want to use its fashion merchandise to educate the misinformed by promoting important political and social messages that affect young people today through fashion. Reverse Regime wants to work diligently to revamp the fashion industry by making it a priority to educate the consumer on important issues. Currently, fashion companies provide products with no purpose or no important message to the general public. Insert the “Reverse Regime” ideology and you have a company that makes great designs but establishes a relationship between the company, the community and its consumer. Ayinde Thomas wants to become the youngest self-made billionaire and buy his dad a house in his homeland in Jamaica.
