Jared started Lowefactor, an online fashion, entertainment, and lifestyle magazine, after graduating from Kutztown University in 2008. He worked various internships, moved to NYC temporarily, and followed the tried and true path for making a career in the fashion industry. Nothing, however, seemed to be happening for him. So he decided he was through waiting around to be discovered. He used his love for writing, and growing rolodex of contacts, to start Lowefactor. Lowefactor has given him both a voice and a venue. Now he contributes articles to The Huffington Post, Ebony, and Essence, among other places. He couldn't believe how easy it was, it says. Or rather, how easy it was to start his blog. Keeping it up and growing his readership is another story.


Jared's shirt is from ASOS. The pants are American Apparel.




Jared's hat is by Vans. His watch is Michael Kors. His sunglasses are American Apparel too. But keep quiet about it. He doesn't want everyone to catch on to his source.


Jared's shoes are Asics he's had since high school. The bag is Rag & Bone.

Notice the beautiful background blur on these images, "bokeh," for you photography geeks. I have upgraded my camera, gone full-frame, baby! And tacked on an 85mm lens too. It's a whole new world, let me tell you. More on that later.

  4. Sadly there's an on-going service maintenance break in his site, I'll try to catch it some other time. Anyway, your camera is upgrading, congratulations! You did a pretty good blurry background there.-Kim
