Taron Barnes is a North Philly kid who grew up like many of us did. Single mother, limited resources and looking for an escape. At an early age he identified a passion for hoops that would take him through a tumultuous collegiate ranks and a shot at the pros. But when that does work, THEN WHAT? What do you do when the game you love so much throws you curveball after curveball and no longer bears fruit? YOU PIVOT.
Pivoting into the fashion & merchandise world, Taron had no idea how far it would take him but in being brave, prepared & diligent its put him into elite company time and time again in short order. He’s already styled the likes of Dorian Finney-Smith of the Dallas Mavs, WNBA star Kahleah Copper & scored a collab deal with Kevin Durant’s multimedia company The Boardroom. He’s also been featured in the Philly Inquirer, Sporting News Now, Slam Online and even styled Kahleah Copper for the cover of the magazine. In under 2 years time following his departure from basketball Taron has turned his fashion house & merch company “Drip Sold Separate” into an international name that commands top dollar from both clients & consumers. Walk with us as we discuss his life story and how he was able to successfully leave the game he loved and not look back.
Be sure to follow him & his company online @taron_barnes & @dripsoldseparate
