Founder of Awake NY Angelo Baque stepped down from his position as Brand Director for Supreme in 2017. Baque was at Supreme for a decade and formerly a store associate for Stüssy prior. When he stepped down from Supreme, he fully stepped into his own business venture. The creative consultant and designer is very mindful about who he collaborates with and his collection designs. His work has a deeper meaning and works with brands that inspire him. Awake NY's most recent collaboration with Merrell dropped this month. He took Merrell's classic hiking shoe, the Jungle Moc and gave their silhouette a new school look.
More importantly, something that is constant and consistent for Baque is his involvement with his New York City community. Baque brings awareness to issues that he is passionate about, fostering healthy relationships with local businesses and organizations that matter to him. Since his following composes much of the youth, he wants to ensure he and his company are "spiritually, mentally, and socially" in-tune with current events and what is going on in the world. His authenticity and confidence lies in his identity because he knows who he is and what he can do. He is consistent in how he operates, through and through. Baque is a mentor, leader, teacher, and knows how to consistently empower his community.
