She goes on to further state, "The clothing line is the unifying point for the project and represents one of the UK street wear brands. As much as I am into high fashion, I never forget the roots of the culture I love. I find that the message and the ethics of this brand give that sense of uplifting spirit to people. It is one of those things that connect people on a day to day life.”
Ms. Sebastian's love for hip hop was a major factor in this collaboration she states, "I love hip hop and having always being involved in the scene internationally, producing and engineering for many hip hop artists from all over the world over the years, I wanted to support the 'Elephant Stomp' movement and knowing how hard-working Calibre is, it is great to be a part of it. I told Calibre about Nang TV as I was impressed by the work they have done for many other artists including a few of my artist friends."
