--AKOO CLOTHING DESIGNS CUSTOM SUIT FOR HOSEA CHANCHEZ OF THE GAME FOR BET AWARDS RED CARPET AND STAGE--

AKOO Clothing has joined with The Game’s Hosea Chanchez for the 11th Annual BET Awards. The BET Awards will be a star-studded event filled with celebrities, professional athletes and personalities all dressed up for the red carpet before heading inside for the exciting ceremony. Awards presenter, actor Hosea Chanchez, is no exception as he plans to walk the red carpet and present an award on-stage wearing a one-of-a-kind custom-made AKOO Clothing suit.

Ralph Reynolds, Creative Director for AKOO Clothing and Vice President of RP55 Group, was commissioned to design a custom suit to be worn by Hosea Chanchez during his BET Awards presentation debut on June 26, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. “I’m honored that Hosea reached out me, I’ve been a big fan of his and the show The Game for quite some time,” states Reynolds. One of the unsung heroes and predecessors of urban fashion, Reynolds is responsible for launching brands such as RP55, Azzure Denim and Indigo Red. Currently, the RP55 Group ships over $20 million of apparel and accessories annually, including AKOO, Play Cloths and G-Shock. “Although urban fashion is what I’m known for, it’s a little known fact that men’s formal wear and luxury accessories are a passion point of mine. I’ve been designing custom garments for a select clientele for years. I enjoy working with Hosea because he exudes the AKOO mantra. He’s a confident and talented individual with a passion for community empowerment,” explains Reynolds.

Hosea Chanchez, star of BET’s hit sitcom The Game, is the founder of the WATCHMEWIN Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of urban youth through mentorship, leadership development, encouragement and empowerment. From actor, philanthropist and fashion trendsetter, Hosea is truly today’s modern man who wants to wear clothes that reflect his passion, personality and lifestyle.

“I was excited to meet Ralph Reynolds who is a fashion rainmaker. AKOO showed me so much love when I was styled for their upcoming fall ad campaign. There is no greater outfit out there than one custom designed especially for you. I’m looking forward to wearing this knockout suit and become one of the favorite red carpet stars,” states Hosea Chanchez.

AKOO Clothing is the new Americana fashion go-to brand for top fashion and innovation nationally and internationally. Global trendsetting celebrities, athletes, musicians, and actors have become fans of the brand including Larry King. Some of these prominent fans have even taken it a step further by aligning themselves and their projects with AKOO such as B.o.B, Curtis Granderson, Carl Crawford, Travis Porter, Tristan Wilds, Meek Mill, and Mickey Factz to name a few. AKOO has been featured in national print publications including VIBE Magazine and GQ, who also named AKOO’s founder T.I., one of the “10 Most Stylish Men in America” in their magazine issue.
