Marcus Troy and Paul Chin during Project Global Trade Show
Paul Chin was born and raised in Queens, New York and still resides where fashion reigns king. Picking up his first DSLR back in 2006, he fused the love for his sneakers and photography, ultimately creating his first blog under the name “Lavishlives”. During his first trials as a blogger, he went around from city to city documenting his sneaker camp-outs with a Sony hand held recorder and being viewed by hundreds of thousands of people also ending up on world famous blogs like Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, MTV, Theshoegame, plus countless others. As his style matured the blog soon followed which caused him to lose majority of his following. This was hard for Paul, but he knew what had to be done, he started from the ground up and now is more determined to influence his readers through his new blog “Lavish-Livez”. Since the inception of Lavish-Livez in August of 2011, Paul has worked with amazing companies like Clarks Originals, Timberland, Tretorn, Magic/Project Global Trade show, Rolando Santana, Good Wood, Del Toro, Psyberia and many more! Lavish-Livez looks back at 2011 as a “warm-up” phase and is now ready to crank the heat up, we want to write and take photos like no other and truly become a maverick in the blogosphere.
Through this blog Paul ultimately hopes to land a career somewhere in the fashion realm, some place where a blogger can be more than just that. He is also currently working on creating another blog focused on interior design and home furniture.
Please remember this is not a fashion magazine, but a style blog with a real, hard working person behind the screen. I encourage you to really read the blog word for word and pay close attention to photos because we work really hard to satisfy our readers. Please follow Lavish-Livez on Twitter, I personally run the Twitter and would love to hear from you! @lavishlivez
