DraKar - “The Cincinnati jack of all trades, DraKar.” Growing up in Hamilton, I found it hard to be “against the norm” when it came to fashion. I knew I wanted to stand out as early as high school. The driving force behind everything I do is my passion for the arts and inspiring other creatives to peruse their dreams. I just want to prove to everyone I can, that, despite societal beliefs of creative careers great things can come out of perusing the arts. Getting into the similar worlds of fashion, cosmetics, and art I’ve been in many roles. I’ve worked and modeled for clothing brands, I’ve taught fine arts to students 2nd through 8th grade. I’ve designed my own signature clothing after teaching myself to sew, I’ve creative directed for big and upcoming brands. I wear many hats; model, fashion designer, creative director, wardrobe stylist, cosmetologist and I’ve been blessed and honored to have been published internationally several times. I’m even more honored to have helped others accomplish similar things, and I am proud to say that 100% of the photographers I’ve worked with have been published. Be Blessed.
