We caught up with Daniel Buezo, Co-Founder and CEO of the LA-based brand Kids of Immigrants, to discuss the brand, obstacles, personal style, and more.
Where are you from? Where do you live now?
I'm originally from Brooklyn, NY, and now live in LA.
For those who may not know, how did the idea of starting Kids of Immigrants come about?
We wanted to create our own heritage brand that truly represented our culture and community. Apparel being the medium to spread love and empower our people.
What were some of your biggest obstacles in starting the brand?
There are new challenges every day. I feel that the biggest obstacle is yourself. Getting in your own way. The more I grow, the more I have to let go.
What does a typical day for Daniel Buezo look like?
Meditation is key for me. I have to set the pace of the day. I usually like to exercise, get some coffee (espresso tonic), and head to the office. Work through emails, take meetings, plan my next day, and do my best.
What do you like to do in your spare time when you're not working on the brand?
I'm a workaholic, and I only know how to work at times, lol. Recently I've been watching more Netflix, something I've never done. I love to be around my friends and in social settings in the evenings.
How would you describe your style?
My efforts in style go into being effortless, lol. In short, I MAKE IT LOOK EASY.
What's your favorite restaurant in New York?
Honestly, the mom and pop shops in the hood. Dominican spots, Honduran spots, and so much more.
What's your favorite restaurant in Los Angeles?
Hmm, this is hard, but I'm going to have to go with Bavel.
Any books, movies, or music you recommend?
I just read A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson, and wow. Also, Feeling is the Secret by Neville Goddard.
