Overseize is a Boston based brand heavily influenced by my Cambodian roots. I opened the doors to my brand in 2011 with the intentions to raise awareness and acknowledgement among Cambodian-Americans about our roots and where our parents came from.
I’m a first generation Cambodian-American. Along with thousands of others, my parents fled Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime in the late 70’s to establish a new life in America. Empty handed and not knowing a word of English, they overcame the challenges that come with starting over from scratch in a foreign country. I want to use apparel as a medium to celebrate the fact we all OVERcame a dark time in our history when it was SEIZEd under a regime.
