NYLON - THE DESIGNER BEHIND PHLEMUNS HAS PLANS TO LAUNCH AN ONLYFANS
The pandemic has certainly influenced how much time is spent online, whether it's discovering new content on TikTok or making millions on the paid-subscription-only platform OnlyFans. The latter is something that Flemons is looking to join soon, in hopes that his creative content will only serve his true followers, rather than major fashion brands or professionals who may take a little too much inspiration from his work.
"I'm sick of the censorship on Instagram. I'm sick of the algorithm. I'm sick of being stolen from constantly," says Flemons. "There's all these things that I fight with, and it looks like OnlyFans caters to all these things that I am fighting against."
Ahead, in his own words, Flemons talks about his relationship with social media and how that has helped (and sometimes hindered) his creative work as a designer.
