As a Haitian-American Fashion blogger, I’ve often stopped to think about what influences my fashion choices. Even though I don’t have a first-hand account of life in Haiti, I do believe my connection to Haiti via my parents has most definitely shaped my sense of fashion, particularly my fond use of color. This fact becomes all the more evident when I encounter the beautiful stylings of these 11 fashion designers of Haitian descent. If you are even remotely familiar with Haitian art, it should come as no surprise that these Haitian designers make use of their fierce cultural pride to bring to life what it means to be Haitian through their fearless use of color, textiles and prints.
Lovens Gedin better known as DJ Stakz, is an American Disc Jockey, Producer, Radio Personality, and Entertainer. Stakz was born in Brooklyn, NY. He is of Haitian Descent.
Stakz has been influenced by many different people which brought him to start playing music. The two major influences were his dad who used to be a DJ and Musician, and his older brother who grew up very much into the Hip Hop and Dancehall World.

His relentless “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” winning attitude is what allows him to break countless barriers and proves to be the reason why there be will no slowing down for him anytime soon.
