Backstage at Luar Zepol: VenusX Predicts Trends and Raul Lopez Curates Boy Bands

Raul Lopez, the creator of Luar Zepol, has been in the scene since he was a teenager in Williamsburg. He started designing at twelve, co-founded Hood By Air, and started his own line in 2011. We were backstage at his SS15 show, where we caught looks reminiscent of those bad boys in class who had liberty spikes full of glue and wore CRASS patches but secretly listened to Limp Bizkit. Unsurprisingly, Raul has said that many of his pieces are inspired by the gangs he was confronted with in high school.

While the models were between hair, makeup and slices of pizza Raul ordered, we got to chat with GhettoGothic creator VenusX, the creator of Candy Kids and a kid eating candy. Enjoy!
