SIMPLE TO SOCIETY POP UP: 6:30PM-8:00PM
SIMPLE TO SOCIETY is an independent clothing brand that was rooted out of the subcultures in DC, MD & Northern VA area. Influenced by Hip Hop music, and a widely recognized sneaker community, the streetwear fashion in the DMV was long overdue for a brand that would depict the area's leading edge style. Since our launch in 2013, SIMPLE TO SOCIETY designs thrived to create a Hometown ensemble, with an "Around the Way" feel into this new society of street wear. Our pieces are chosen for our aesthetic appeal as well as our durability and quality. Producing only limited quantity of each design. Meanwhile, also becoming an advocate for keeping shit really simple. The opposite of being SIMPLE to society is being COMPLEX to society. Being simple does not mean being basic or boring, it simply means to avoid the complications of everyday life. Flowing with the go, going with the flow. Our style is very comfy, laid back, plus minimalistic. With that, we hope to use it as our main ingredient to contribute to the existing culture today.
Grammar is an up and coming hip hop artist from Northern Virginia where he was born and raised. Music has been an integral part of his life since early childhood. By the age of 18 he was already a key member in the local rap group Crown Diamonds. The group quickly began to make a name for themselves by preforming at a variety of venues. As they made their way from the small bars of Virginia to the night clubs of Washington DC, the groups buzz continued to grow. After a year of performances throughout the region the group hit a major road block when Grammar was arrested and charged, with the charges stemming from an arrest that took place in 2010, for possession of a firearm and drug distribution. From there, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison with 7 years of the sentence suspended. The sentence was handed down in July 2011, and Grammar vowed to use his time behind bars wisely. He spent his remaining incarceration honing his craft and working diligently to become the unique artist he is today.
Grammars approach is complete and soulful, and many enjoy watching him as his star continues to rise. He brings a unique approach to the world
of rap and his music is a true testament to the fact that people are able to make positive changes in their life, do what they are meant to
do, and break through social barriers using only a microphone and words spoken from the heart.
