Don Bleek is an American journalist, fashion writer and media personality. Originally from South Jersey, Don Bleek moved to NYC to pursue a career in media and entertainment after graduating Magna Cum Laude from the prestigious Rutgers University, with a B.A. in Journalism and Media Studies and a concentration on Africana Studies.
During his senior year at Rutgers, Don Bleek interned at XXL Magazine under the direction of Taiia Smart Young, who now serves as the Executive Editor of Juicy Magazine. After completing his internship with XXL, Don Bleek went on to intern at Global Grind and Complex before becoming a contributor online writer for Hip Hop Weekly.
After taking various internships and being a contributor writer, Don Bleek decided to launch his own website, www.donbleek.com because he felt like there was a lack of coverage in upscale fashion from an African-American perspective.
His intentions were to launch an online publication for a diverse audience, but from an African-American perspective. Don Bleek wants to give his readers content that could be seen in and similar to what’s in Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, V Man, Elle, Esquire, Detail and Dazed & Confused. He also wants the site to be a platform for up & coming talents to get discovered and let their voices be heard.
Don Bleek quickly made a name for himself on the NYC fashion, music, and entertainment scene a few months after the launch of his website. He used the site as a way to network and parlay his way into exclusive industry events.
www.donbleek.com is an online fashion and entertainment publication that provides the latest celeb fashion, trends, and entertainment news for its young diverse audience.
