Admire Wear is a home for people to feel safe. To have a place for their story to feel heard and to be able to help others. We all have something to learn from one another, and we can’t live without each other; we need that community support and belongingness. My products are something that loves you and hugs when you don't love yourself. It reminds you of your worth, the importance of your story, and how meaningful life your life is. The world without you isn’t I want to live in, together we can choose love over fear.
Admire Wear Saving Lives Initiative
I have developed five values that are non-negotiable that Admire Wear supports and believes in:
1. YOU ARE ENOUGH AND NOT ALONE
2. YOU ARE LOVED AND WILL BE FOREVER LOVED
3. IT'S OK TO FEEL HUMAN
4. TOGETHER, WE CAN CHOOSE LOVE OVER FEAR
5. YOUR LIFE IS MEANINGFUL AND IRREPLACEABLE; WE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT YOU
You are not alone, you are needed, you are not a burden, your life is meaningful and you are loved endlessly regardless of your unique traits and characteristics.

Featured Interview by Alexey Timbul for Post-Paris Fashion
What is your earliest fashion memory? A moment you realized wow clothes and accessories can be a way to express myself… Sophomore year of high school I used to get bullied a lot in school, on the bus, at home. People would just shit on me every day. I had no escape and wrote my first suicide note. But I had this hoodie with a really large hood. It felt like being hugged. I could even cry in it, and no one cared. I wore it 24/7. It’d be hot outside and there’s little Joshua in his hoodie trying to hide from the world. With the hood up, I was able to avoid people’s stares. The less people saw me the less pain I had to endure. The safety of that hoodie let me know that I was ok. Senior year my mom got me like 20 hoodies for Christmas. It blew my mind with the pockets and zippers and T-Rexes, and galaxies, what art could do to a hoodie. When I thought about launching my own brand, a hoodie was the first item! [Laughs]
