Six official members of the creative 202 Collective, each with their own distinct identities and aesthetics, make up the group. Originally from the DMV area, based in Atlanta, Cole, Ric, Leek, Marc and Zer0 are at the helm.
Cole Hughes, better known by his rap moniker "Giela," was born and reared in Northwest Washington, DC, and has since shook every city he has entered with his creative spirit and prowess. Giela has been establishing himself as a relentless businessman ready to forge his own path thanks to his knowledge in several creative industries. After creating his own mobile studio company, Cole landed an internship at Highlife Studios, a new Northwest recording facility and made an immediate difference. He started by integrating his "full-package" studio services into the Highlife model while still a member of the company. He soon contributed to the success of every studio activity.
"Ric," short for Eric Anders, is all you require.
Ric is a ruthless entrepreneur, manager, producer, model and stylist who was born in Atlanta and raised in Washington, D.C.
An industry gremlin, Leek grew up in Columbia, Maryland. He is a member of the Atlanta-based modeling firm "FY Models." He poses in both modern and vintage streetwear as well as high couture.
Marcus, often known as "Marc," is an entrepreneur and fashion star from Atlanta who runs the "one of none" streetwear company Wise Juveniles. He began producing handmade screen-printed clothing in the thick of the pandemic and still does so every week.
Zer0, a photographer for 202 who is a Lorton, Virginia-based artist with roots in Sierra Leone.
Zer0 is driven to leave his mark on the realm of self-expression because creativity runs through his blood. Zer0 has a reputation for being intelligent and articulate, yet people often assume he is ignorant because of his towering, gloomy appearance..
