Primary

The Target: Ideal consumer is the 16-30 years old with an interest in either Hip-Hop, Skating, Streetwear or all of the above.  They will be both an online and boutique shopper. They're socially active and keep up with the latest trends but don't necessarily follow them because they like to set their own as well.

Secondary 

The secondary customer is the over 30's who appreciates well crafted high qualtity premium products and subtle garments. They pay close attention to the detail in the stitch.  Although the over 30's customer wants to look their age they also want to be as trendy as any other age group.  They may have grown up on Hip-Hop or were at some point in their life influenced by it.

I am "TG" (Tito Garcia), I was Born and raised in the South Bronx section of New York City.  My interest for Design began in around the 3rd -4th grade creating sketches of original Nike Air Jordans in particularly the Jordan 3's up to about the 6's . This was before they became what they are today.  I had an appreciation for their design and they seemed to be ahead of the curve, innovative for that time. As I got older it shifted over to not just footwear but fashion as well.  Below are some of Tinker Hatfields original sketches of the 3's..Wish I still had mine.

The idea for the brand was to make something that represented an optimistic state of mind and encouragement for others to feel like a big deal while looking great at the same time.

It was all created after I signed up for this class & competition.  After viewing the video about the contest I decided to share my interest in starting a fashion company and to share my skill basically.  I began thinking of a name, concept, meaning and purpose for the brand's existence.  Just two days after signing up, I started researching and brainstorming.  I narrowed my list down to the Huge"  I added the "supply" because I wanted the brand to supply the encouragement to "live large" its a play on words in so many different ways, some that I still haven't revealed. The name was just what I was looking for and it seemed to embody everything I wanted the brand to represent.

The Elephant-

  • The African Elephant is the Largest Land Mammal on Earth.
  • They have excellent memory
  • They can paint / create Art

  Elephants are some of the most intelligent animals on Earth. Their brains weigh 5kg, much more than the brain of any other land animal. Their brains have more complex folds than all animals except whales, which is thought to be a major factor in their intellect. They commonly show grief, humor, compassion, cooperation, self-awareness, tool-use, playfulness, and excellent learning abilities. An elephant in Korea surprised its zoo keepers by independently learning to mimic the commands they gave it by verbalizing on the end of its trunk, successfully learning 8 words and their context. Elephants have a more developed hippocampus, a brain region responsible for emotion and spatial awareness, than any other animal, and studies indicate that they are superior to humans in keeping track of multiple objects in 3D space. There are many reports of elephants showing altruism towards other species, such as rescuing trapped dogs at considerable cost to themselves. As mentioned above, they respect their dead and have death rituals. There are stories of the herds of elephants killed by humans retrieving the poached bones and returning them to the place of death to bury them.

Height: 5-14 ft at shoulders (males); females of all subspecies are smaller than males.
Length: Up to 30 ft trunk to tail.
Weight: 6,000-15,000 lbs (males).
Lifespan Up to 70 years.
