Dwayne Watkins ~aka~ Wayne Vu (my nickname) was born September 2, 1971 in Philadelphia, PA. I always had a passion for drawing, music and boxing. My Mom always kept me in designer clothes so looking fresh everyday was a must for me. So being fashionable was natural. All through my early school days I enjoyed art and fell in love with HipHop. My creative desire led me to attend The Art Institute of Philadelphia in the 90s for graphic design. By the age of 21 I started working on a rap demo. Then, I managed a female rap group and started a to do my own music production, so I put together VU Entertainment. In the late 90s, I met my wife (April Watkins) who had a strong business sense and shared my passion for fashion, music and sports. She came up with VUENT Design as a mesh of VU Entertainment and expressed our mutual dream to have a high-end athletic clothing line. After she passed in 2015, I had to keep our dream alive. I reached out to Avis Pierre ~aka~ BossLady, who is also my cousin. She has always been someone my wife respected and has good business sense, technical talent and personal style . When she saw my clothing designs and understood my vision she had to be a part of our dream. We are now pushing for VUENTDesign to become the next global fashion house and to create The Vuent Foundation!
