Questions like, what that business would be, how you would keep it running, and what you have to overcome to achieve their dream can hold them back. Not Ukiah High Junior Wesley Duong who is the designer and found of the unisex clothing brand company NBLTY, standing for “Nobility.”
Duong told UHS News he created NBLTY because he wanted to make a streetwear brand that was affordable but yet still high quality. He described NBLTY as featuring a wide variety of apparel in all different colors including hoodies, beanies, t-shirts, sweatpants, long sleeves. Duong said NBLTY recently started making phone cases as well.
