- OUR PHILOSOPHY
Independence, self-reliance, and seeing perfection in imperfection are at the core of Walkity Talk. We pride ourselves in pushing boundaries that others are afraid to overcome. We create clothes, art, and media to elevate a culture celebrating freedom. We at Walkity Talk show that people have the freedom to become what they want. We firmly believe that hard work, self discipline, and passion will allow great innovation, leading to new and better advancements in society.
Walkity Talk’s first step in its journey was the development of our clothing brand. We first started in Kingston, Jamaica to bring fashion to a special place that deserved a clothing brand rooted in its distinctive culture. Jamaica, being the home of Reggae and Dancehall, is strikingly vivid. With this said, we focus on expanding on the unique style of Dancehall fashion - a distinctive mix of American and British rap music clothing styles. Walkity Talk is intent on developing clothes for this underdeveloped area of fashion.
Our second step on this journey is giving artists the springboard they need to develop their craft. We work with multiple visual, physical, and musical artists; giving each a platform to gain notoriety. Our resources allow artists to work with other artists from different mediums to build bodies of work that elevate them all. Such collaboration results in works with unique nuance and depth-from artists who share common goals of success and desire for production of high-quality art.
Walkity Talk's aim is to build our online media presence to provide a centralized way to learn about great art created by exceptional Jamaican artists. Our website, YouTube channel, and Instagram account (@WalkityTalk) give a place where all can connect with our collaborators.
In a unique twist, with the goal to inspire future generations, we pull back the curtain, via vlogs and show the creative processes of various artists. We want to thus develop a never ending cycle of creative innovation. We believe our futures will be elevated by those who take risks not knowing what the next days hold but being compelled to make something to put out into the world.
