About Donald the Founder:

The visionary founder behind ALAYT, a high-end clothing brand that seamlessly blends art with fashion, catering to individuals with an eclectic style and a unique artistic vision.

Born in Tampa, Florida, Donald is the middle child in a family of seven, comprising five girls and two boys. Growing up, he developed a keen interest in art and fashion, constantly creating characters and sketches on his notebooks and whatever he could get his hands on. As a child, he entered various art and coloring contests, winning a few of them. Donald's love for fashion also started at a young age, as he tried to recreate some of the pieces he saw and transform his hand-me-downs into his own unique style.

Donald's passion for the arts extends beyond fashion. He grew up as a dancer, mastering freestyle dancing and participating in several dance groups as a teenager and young adult. He would battle anywhere anytime whenever he had the chance; that was the era, what can we say. 


Donald's creativity knows no bounds, as he has created numerous fabric, textile, and canvas paintings for both himself and others, including jackets and shoes. He’s also customized skateboards, bags, and many other unique pieces. Donald dabbled in music, song writing, and rapping with no success, but lots of fun. He considers himself to be quite the freestyler, his words.


After meeting his wife at a young age, they decided to tie the knot and were blessed with five children. Donald went on to serve in the United States Air Force for 13 years, where he traveled the world and met many unique and memorable people.


After exiting the military, he decided to go to school. During this time, he would also work as a freelance stylist, taking on small gigs here and there, mainly for friends and family. He eventually graduated with a BA in Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing Management. Donald went on to work for a very established luxury Company.

With the support of his family and friends, Donald decided to combine his love for art, fashion, and style, to create ALAYT. The brand's name is an acronym for "art is [a line around your thoughts]," a portion of a quote by the late artist Gustav Klimt. With this brand, Donald showcases his personal art pieces and will collaborate with local and international artists for future collections.

ALAYT has been a long time in the making, and Donald is excited to present it to the world. The brand embodies his passion for unique and creative expression, and he hopes to inspire others to embrace their unique styles. Join the collective, grow and learn with ALAYT, and stay tuned for what's to come.
