Founded in 2013, YNC Gear is a local brand heavily inspired by urban fashion mixed with a touch of Cayman’s culture. The clothing line debuted at Cayman Islands Fashion Week (CIFW) 2014 and was worn by a renowned local DJ at BET’s 106 & Park in New York City.
The young Caymanians who make up the YNC team all had a passion for the same thing – starting a clothing line. Stephan Cotterell, who is also a local musical artiste, stated that it was dedication that pulled them through the tough beginnings, and praised his brother, Davion as a paramount contributor to their group. Davion Cotterell is the main designer for their brand.
Supporters include local celebrities Selecta Renegade, who wore their design while on 106 & Park and filmmaker Frank E. Flowers, who personally requested a shirt.
YNC is sold at 3FortyFive in Caribbean Plaza and the catalog can be found at ynccayman.com
