Samuel Krost is an American Instagram celebrity and fashion designer who rose to fame due to his relationship with singer Selena Gomez. Samuel is also the founder of a company named – ”Krost.”
He was born on February 8, 1993, in Ocean City, New Jersey, USA.
Samuel grew up with two sisters and a brother.
He once said:
”I grew up in a small town outside of New Jersey, just an hour outside of Manhattan, in a very close-knit community.”
Krost earned a degree in business from New York University, a private research university that was founded in 1831.
From 2013 to 2014, he worked for Onia (a New-York based clothing company) as a visual and sales merchandising executive.
”I ended up interning with a brand called Onia, a men’s luxury swimwear brand, which was an incredible opportunity.”
From 2014 to 2015, he worked at Helmut Lang (a fashion and apparel company) in the same position he had at Onia.
In 2017, he co-founded Humanity Studio, a company that is focused on accelerating businesses at the intersection of technology, digital media, and consumer products.
In September 2018, Samuel started a company called KROST LLC, a company that is focused on raising awareness on issues like suicide, bullying, and mental health through their designed clothes.
According to the company description:
“Krost proposes a progressive vision of minimalist luxury fashion rooted in the idea of friendship.”
For one of their first projects, they teamed up with Nouvelle Administration, a Montreal-based branding agency to create a $60 T-shirt to honor the seventeen lives lost during the Parkland shooting on February 14, 2018.
The T-shirt featured flower petals to commemorate the dead and the phrase:
“save your friends.”
All the proceeds from T-shirt sales were donated to the March For Our Lives organization, a student-led demonstration in support of legislation to prevent gun violence in the US.
During an interview, Samuel talked about the reason he started his company:
“March for Our Lives was the inspiration that moved me to go and try to create this company.”
He started the company with the help of one of his friends from school, Scott Camaran.
“Sam and I kind of always vibed really well because of our tastes and age range – similar influences.”
Caran and Krost believe in being positive influences and support for their communities, friends, and families.
Samuel drives a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Eleanor.
