I get this question asked a lot. Who are you? Well, my name is Hunter Vought. I am 19 years old and live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Yes, the city behind me is Philadelphia. I do not attend college as I graduated from High School in 2016. I intended to go to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown with a major in Business Management. I dropped out the first week of school. Now you might be asking yourself, “Why did he drop out? Everyone goes to college.”
Well, I started this Instagram page called VoTrends about a year ago, (January 15th, 2016) a menswear page featuring my outfits along with other Instagram users in grid form. With it being a little over a year since I started this page I grew over 185K followers. Yes, 185K followers, along with my personal page which I started in December, 2016 now has over 25K followers. Crazy, huh? I came out of class one day and had a million emails, (yes im exaggerating) from clothing brands asking me to collaborate with them to feature their products on my own Instagram page. I knew right there and then what I wanted to do. I wanted to get into social media advertising for menswear brands. Which soon turned into me wanting to blog and to create my own website (www.votrendsus.com) to feature my own content for my audience to shop my outfits.
I have collaborated with many brands throughout the past year which. Here are a few maybe I can introduce you to some new brands, JACHS New York, Sutro Footwear, Koio Collective, NoNationality07, Original Grain, Jack and Jones, Archer Hotel and a few others I can’t think of off the top of my head. I’m sure a few others will pop up in my up and coming blog posts. If any of you caught that, yes I have worked with Archer Hotel a couple of times now. I had the opportunity to travel which is a big part of what I would like to do in the future. They gave me the oppertunity to stay there for a few days which was amazing. I will get into that in a later post about my travel plans, so stay tuned.
If you made it this far I would like to wrap things up with something to think about. If you have a dream go for it because if you put your mind to it you most certainly can do it. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go around. Even though I have yet to make it big, I know that my hard work and dedication to what I love will pay off in the future. Till next time, go follow my blog which will consist of Fashion, Food and Travel. Thank you! – Hunter Vought
