In Memory of Nick Lee – D9 Captain
It has been a little over a year since our D9 co-founder, Nick Lee, was taken away to a better place.
*November 12, 1972 – August 13, 2014
Nick was the backbone and driving force of the D9 movement. His energy and spirit was contagious. Nick had a vision and made sure it was seen. Whatever Nick decided to do, he did not stop until it was done. Nick always gravitated towards the fashion industry. In his earlier years, he was responsible for building a few retail clothing businesses, called SCHEME. We can tell you about the stories of how his persistence and ability to never give up. His attitude and drive opened the doors for him and his close associates to have access to brands that were impossible to open. Through the retail aspect of the business, Nick networked and met a lot of people that would come to remember his presence in his later venture, which was D9. We started D9 with an idea and a few bucks. Nick’s energy would he the driving force to allow the brand to grow, so fast, so quickly. Nick had a bit of impatience which made everyone around him work and move as quick as he did. Nick left an impression on everyone that he crossed paths with. Everyone that has met him, and even the the people that have not met him personally, but through his Instagram page, has been inspired and motivated by him.
Nick will never be forgotten and his legacy will live on through us. See you later Nick.
