A Bronx-born creative is opening his own store in the borough named Signed By McFly with the goal to change his community for the better.
Jevaughn Williams, better known Mugzy McFly, didn't always know he wanted to work in fashion. But like his namesake from the 1980s classic Back to the Future, he's always been fly.
"I've always liked fashion. I like to get dressed up," he says.
After making clothes for over 10 years, this week he opened his flagship store McFly Studios in the borough where he grew up.
The space is big enough for the community events, so he plans to host a few. Not only can visitors shop at the new storefront, but they can even get custom products made as well.
Being from the Bronx is a major influence on McFly's brand, which has found by fans and celebrities like Doja Cat and Post Malone.
"I'm just a product of my environment. I used to sit at home, couldn't go outside, and I'd watch cartoons all day. Where I'm from, they like to rap and play basketball so it's all just a jambalaya of my style," he adds.
With luxury brands like Gucci and Saint Laurent now incorporating street fashion into their lines, he sees the Bronx as a leader in the fashion world.
Thanks to his brand-new physical location, McFly is expanding his brand to music, sports, modeling and more to make McFly studios a hub for all things creative
