Mdot Booji puts ladies first. The footwear designer and founder of independent women’s sneaker line Booji is a regular collaborator with Sebago, sharing her take on female streetwear. For Booji’s latest project with the Rockford, Mich.-based brand, she brought along four of her blogger friends to design a women’s capsule collection called Sebago Six Degrees. “My focus was to put together a real underbelly group of girls,” Booji said. “I wanted them to be really connected to the streets.” Here, the designer talks about her favorite tunes for the design studio and who she turns to for style inspiration.
Music I listen to while designing:
2Chainz. “I always tend to listen to hardcore rap because it gets me focused.”
Never leave home without:
