Atlanta Hawks, Thabo Sefolosha and wife, Bertille, received countless support from local celebrities, such as, Keri Hilson, Yung Joc, Dwight Howard, Kris Humphries and his Hawks teammates.
JQSportsPR spoke with Thabo about the new location and what it means to him to be apart of such a store.
Note: (Attom Concept Store has three locations in Switzerland)
JQ: Bringing ATTOM to Atlanta, whose idea was it?
Thabo: It was idea that Zola and I came up with when we met. Zola, is my business partner. We came together and spoke about bringing the store to Atlanta. Atlanta is a great place, I've been here for about 3 years myself. It's a fashion forward city; where people like to dress up and look nice. We wanted to bring that European flavor, that's close to us. I'm a fashion forward guy that likes classy pieces but without the extravagant elements.
JQ: ATTOM, is a high profile boutique store, what makes it stand out from other luxury clothing stores? How do you guys stand out?
Thabo: I got to start with the people that work here. If you meet Zola for the first time, he's going to make you feel welcomed and give you that vibe that you're shopping from your own closet. Other than that, the selection we have, it's straightforward. If something doesn't fit you well, we'll let you know. We try to be helpful as much as possible, we're not going to just sell you anything. We're here to bring good clothing, good fashion, and we're going to try to stay on top of the game and give you pieces that you would only be able to find in our place.
JQ: You mentioned that you're into fashion, is there anyone you look up to in the fashion industry?
Thabo: You know what, it's funny but I be on Instagram and follow a few daily fashion trend pages. I pick pieces here and there but I wouldn't say I follow someone particularly. You know, I'm from Africa too so I like to switch the style. I'll wear stuff from Africa and I see it's becoming popular now. Fashion, to me, is a way for me to show my expression.
