Who is Tyler Grosso?
Tyler Grosso is a California-based American fashion designer best known for his Super Radical brand. Grosso was born on December 01, 1993, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Raised by his mother since his father left the family when he was two years old, Grosso grew up as a very shy child, but this began to leave him during high school. In high school, he also developed his passion for clothing design. His passion was inspired by the American hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, which is usually abbreviated as Odd Future. His high school teacher, moved by his graphic design class project, also encouraged him to start his own clothing line. Grosso had to drop out of school to pursue this newfound passion but first started working in a grocery store while taking an online semester course.
A die-hard fan of the famous American rapper and record producer Rakim Mayers, known by his stage name ASAP Rocky, and Steven Rodriguez, known as ASAP Yams (the two are co-founders of the American hip-hop group ASAP Mob), Grosso moved to New York City to work as an assistant to the group, where he learned more about fashion and mixing clothes to make a difference. Grosso was also inspired by films, music, and documentaries from the 1970s. He left ASAP in 2015 to start his own streetwear business under the brand name Superrradical.
