What do you get when 2 creative people come together to help plan a friend's bridal shower in 7 days? Creative Chaos! Saturday, August 8, 2015, was day 1 of Adrienne & Karissa's bridal shower planning, and unbeknownst to them, it was also the beginning of BASiK23. 

BASiK23 was officially birthed 3 months later on November 7, 2015 while sipping lemonade, sharing their favorite parts of their friend's wedding in Jamaica, and discussing the parallels of hip hop and simplicity. Hip hop was a grass roots movement, a movement that started from the bottom with the bare essentials. A movement that took the bare essentials and worked its way from the streets of the boogie down Bronx in New York, to mainstream America and beyond. Hip hop has touched hearts and resonated with audiences worldwide. In the beginning, I’m sure hip hop had no idea the places she would go, the people she would see or the impact she would have, for she was only doing what came natural to her. For she was only living her passion, her passion of dope lyrics over a tight beat. The ground zero of hip hop is essentially the essence of BASiK23.

BASiK is when ground zero meets innovation. BASiK23 is when Adrienne & Karissa decided to join forces to live their passion. The numbers 2 and 3 represent the glue, the glue that keeps them together. Adrienne & Karissa are members of the illustrious organization, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Adrienne is a devOWT member of the DEUCE club while Karissa goes hard for the TRE club, hence the number 23.

The final and most important piece of BASiK23 is the CSO of the company, the Chief Spiritual Officer, their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To say that it was happenstance for Adrienne & Karissa to meet would be false. God ordained their paths to cross for such a time as this. In Him is how they live and move and have their being (Acts 17:28). Their desire with BASiK23 is to take their God given creative talents and glorify Him by sharing their bold and innovative designs with the masses. 

Join the movement. Be BASiK. Get BASiK23.
