Those who follow me on Instagram will remember my historical Frendy's Bape Couch Countdown hashtag, where I sat down next to all of the beautiful people that showed me extreme support throughout my years at Nigo’s former brainchild. One of the stand out individuals featured is my lil’ bro Dillon Hughes whom I refer to as Beizus (an inside joke made from his similar traits to Justin Beiber combined with his immense love for Kanye West). I have known the budding creative for about 3 years now and his growth is truly commendable.
Born in Long Island, Dillon grew up in a stimulating environment. He states, “my parents were constantly playing music or movies growing up. Their musical taste ranged from Jimi Hendrix to RUN DMC. They would have me watch old school movies and documentaries on anyone, from James Dean to Muhammad Ali”. Furthermore he added, “my parents supported me in all of the outlets I was involved in. All of the hardworking/creative mindset they embodied has had a huge influence on me.”
The strong support system that Dillon was blessed to have led him to become the free-spirited trendsetter he is today. Biezus now runs DillonHughes.com which serves as his very own hub providing tips and inspiration on everything style. He confesses, “my ultimate goal in life is to become successful in all of my endeavors. I believe that anything is possible as long as you have patience, put in the work and have unrelenting faith.”
