Stay Humble” is a fashion movement started by N.C. Central University alumni, Pierre C. Davis, Austin C. Henley, and DeAndres D. Royal. Their company LifEKiT is an accessory and apparel company. LifEKiT stands for love, energy, knowledge and time—principles by which the products and messages are spread to customers. The trio believes that it is important to include other students in the movement because college students are influential figures in the community.
“We started here from undergrad, so naturally the support came from the student body,” said Davis. According to the trio, “Stay Humble” was created from the idea that humility and generosity keep them grounded as they continue to chase their dreams.
The trio said the campaign is meant to encourage a lifestyle that consciously aims to reduce our individual and collective carbon footprints.Founded in 2008, LifEKiT aims to reach college students and young professionals. The partners hope to impact, inspire and influence through the “Stay Humble” line.
“We try to be a voice for the voiceless so whether they care about LifEKiT or not, we give them substance to care about something,” said Henley.
The LifEKiT team has had the opportunity to showcase in multiple events around the country including the MAGIC/Pool fashion trade show in Las Vegas.
“My most memorable LifEKiT moment was when we launched the website, because at that point there was no turning back,” said Henley. “We can say what we want and you can't turn us off .”
