    GRAND OPENING: SUCCEZZ BOUTIQUE

    ENTREPRENEUR AND PRO-ATHLETE PARTNER IN FASHION TO HELP INSPIRE THE YOUTH

    Chicago, IL – Fashion connoisseur, Lavelle "V-Dot" Sykes and NBA Milwaukee Bucks Forward, Bobby Simmons takes the level of success to a new echelon with the V.I.P Grand Opening (Media Only) of SuccezZ: A Way of Life Environment Boutique from 6-10 p.m., Friday, June 20, 2008 and open to the public from 6-10 p.m., Saturday, June 21, 2008 at 1329 South Michigan Avenue.

    "In the midst of violence that has continuously perpetuated throughout the Chicago area, we wanted to provide a place for the youth and subconsciously inspire them to achieve and stay driven," said co-owner, Bobby Simmons.

    That said, Sykes and Simmons plan to increase positive awareness amongst the youth throughout the community by implementing various mentoring/internship programs geared towards students delving into the fashion merchandise management industry; annual charity basketball tournaments; and back-to-school giveaways to provide students with educational resources and activities.

    SuccezZ, by B & V-Dot, a new envisioned fashion haven that appeals to a widespread demographic has garnered an eclectic assortment of styles to cater to all fashion-conscious alike which will carry a gamut of high-end motifs for men and women apparel, jeanz, teez and sneakerz including Nike, Adidas, Cavi, Parish, Celio, Euro-centric designers and exclusive Chicago urban brands, to name a few.

    ABOUT LAVELLE "V-DOT" SYKES

    Sykes started his career at Tony's Sports, previously one of Chicago's major urban retail chains. After managing and buying for five Tony's Sports locations he helped open and establish Self-Conscious and Encore by V-Dot . Based upon Sykes' thorough retail and business savvy both boutiques became a success and sparked Sykes to partner with his long time friend for over a decade, Simmons.

    ABOUT BOBBY SIMMONS

    While attending DePaul University, Simmons was the only player in history to record 1,000 points, 700 rebounds, 200 assists and 100 three-point field goals. He was named All-State, All-City and All-Area by the Chicago Sun-Times as a junior and senior at Simeon High School.

  16. I'm loving Self Conscious and Encore. Haven't had the chance to stop by Succezz yet but I'm sure I'll fall in love with them too. Another new shop just opened up called AKIN. Y'all in the Chi should check this place out too. They don't carry quite as much streetwear as these places cuz they're a Nike Sportswear shop but they carry other brands and there selection is still hot! And the staff is hella cool.
