DAVON BEAN, FOUNDER/CEO
Fly Geenius is... Someone with an effortlessly stylish personality who doesn't compromise integrity.
New York native Davon Bean’s interest in fashion developed during his childhood years, at a time when he witnessed hip-hop culture and fashion as an important part of the identity in his own neighborhood. He quickly realized that despite his humble upbringing, the one thing people could control was the way they looked and that this could be turned into a powerful tool for motivation, empowerment, and inspiration.
Always sketching and envisioning the clothes he wanted to wear himself lead him to design his first leather jacket at the age of fifteen. A few years later, he began working for high-end fashion labels, such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Gucci, and Phillip Lim honing his skills on the ins and outs of the business, especially developing a sense for market and business trends, cultivating a network of industry professionals, and internalizing the importance attention to detail plays in fashion.
Aside from the talent to express himself creatively, Davon utilized his innate sense for business to start his own fashion label in 2011. Since its inception, Fly Geenius had the opportunity to build up a sizable repertoire by partnering with- and designing capsule collections for some of the most influential artists of our time, all of whom share the company’s philosophy. Fly Geenius collaborated with Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, and ASAP Ferg, to name a few.
Fly Geenius uses clothing as a tool to inspire people to make smart decisions and recognize fashion as a tool to strive for success, work hard, learn about opportunities, and think outside the box.
