In October 2012, MGOT approached IBMM model Vida J with the opportunity to launch a skateboard line dealing with skate decks and t-shirts. After careful review and negotiations, IBMM owners Dee Harris and King Davis decided to proceed with providing not just Vida J, but also multi-published model, Ashley Danger to the endorsement deal. "As a photographer, I can honestly say that this is a great opportunity for any model. I look forward to seeing my images appearing on a product that will appear in various stores, but more importantly a product such as a skateboard", states Harris.
King Davis states, "I would have never thought of that. I think it's big! Not just for MGOT, Ashley Danger, Vida J and IBMM, but also big for the urban modeling world because we get a chance to see African-American models on a skateboard."
This endorsement deal will project the brands of Vida J and Ashley Danger to the masses, some of whom have never heard of these particular models. They will be able to reach potential clients and potential fans in areas that they have never been before now.
"I am grateful for the connection that was made between our company and IBMM. We now have two great models representing our brand on these skate decks and people are excited to see these women flourish."
Each t-shirts will be sold via retail spots METHOD & CHOP CHOP in KANSAS CITY and DROP CENTS in ST.LOUIS, as well as atwww.mgotclothing.com .
