First of all, I would like to welcome everyone to our new “blog posts” tab. In this first official blog post, I will talk a little bit about myself, my brand 0_CCULT, and what to expect from this blog. If you are ready, let’s dive into it.
As the creator of this brand and author of this post, I would like to introduce myself to people who don’t know me yet. My name is Cem Hadimli and I study Entrepreneurship at Suffolk University Boston. As you may know, I am from Turkey. Therefore 0_CCULT is an Istanbul-based brand even though we ship and market internationally. If you ever purchased a product from us, you can notice the stickers coming with the package have “0_CCULT Istanbul” written on them which I think is a cool detail. I will talk more about this in future posts. I am personally a big fan of Techno, House, and Punk music. I think you should know that I am also a DJ. If you pay attention to my upcoming designs, you will notice the influence of music on my brand. After all, as 0_CCULT we live for music and the good vibes.
So, you may be wondering what is 0_CCULT? You can find the quick and broad explanation from here. If you already know what it is, here is more information for you to work on. 0_CCULT is a clothing brand that aims to target the followers of underground subcultures. I created 0_CCULT because I am a follower of these subcultures. If I have to simplify it, I would say, we are making designs that attract individuals who are ready for a unique dark-mysterious streetwear niche. A tool for street fashion and music enthusiasts to express themselves through their clothing coming from 0_CCULT's perspective.
I have to admit, there are more than 1 reasons why I started this blog. It is funny that I was already thinking of starting a blog page for 0_CCULT a long ago. But the truth is, I would probably postpone it as much as I can if it wasn’t for my class. This semester, I am taking a wonderful class called, “ADPR-289” and it’s about Social Media. I am glad it pushes me to write blogs about my brand because if you think of it, this is a win-win situation for me. The blog project is the main project of this class, but It doesn’t feel like work to me since I can write about my brand 0_CCULT. Thus I am already glad I took this class and started this blog. I started 0_CCULT during the Covid-19 pandemic and unfortunately, we are still in the pandemic. It is very hard for a clothing brand to grow during a worldwide event where everybody is trapped in their homes. It’s very hard to create content as well. That’s the main reason I took this class and seems like it gave me the opportunity to create content for my brand. I hope to use these blog posts to keep my brand active during the pandemic.
You should expect everything 0_CCULT related from this blog. I am thrilled to write about my upcoming first collection. Nothing is final but, I am planning to write about my experience in creating 0_CCULT, Music’s influence on this brand, early marketing attempts for 0_CCULT, personal influences, Future of 0_CCULT, and more. I am aiming to convince you to be a part of the 0_CCULT community at some point. Let’s see how that is going to work out. I would really appreciate your support.
