Frank’s entrepreneurial spirit was evident from a young age. In 2023, he founded R Cloth, a streetwear clothing brand. His ten-year experience in the industry, inspired by icons like Daymond John, Dapper Dan, and Karl Kani, fueled his passion for streetwear fashion and motivated him to start his own brand
