King Solomon

My name is Michael Fragoso. I am the Owner & CEO of King Solomon. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and when it comes to clothing, exclusivity and quality are everything. My whole life I have been into fashion and have always had a closet full of clothes. I never liked when someone was wearing the same piece of clothing that I was, so I would always try to dress as uniquely as possible. Unfortunately, mass-produced streetwear brands made this next to impossible. So my senior year in high school in 2011, I began brainstorming names for a new streetwear clothing line. Ever since I was young, I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I've wanted to own my business for as long as I can remember and I never liked the idea of working for someone else. 

When I started brainstorming names, I wanted to align myself with something that carried a certain air of prestige -- something that exuded power and confidence. King Solomon was the wisest, most influential, most wealthy monarch in world history. Historians tell us that he was fabulously wealthy and wise. His subjects would  dump their silver outside of the city walls because the vast quantity of King Solomon's gold made silver worthless. Kings and queens from throughout the world would come to him for advice. He was the wealthiest person to ever walk this planet. He had Wisdom, Wealth, and Power. I thought to myself  "Who couldn't relate to wisdom, wealth, and power?" I mean everyone wants to be smart, rich, and powerful.

I  finally got the wheels rolling in 2012 and it has been a slow but progressive journey. King Solomon represents  excellency ; It represents living for excess; It represents no limits; It represents unmatched exclusivity and quality.
