“As a visual guy, I was never good at writing about what I create. So instead, why don’t I share how it all started for me.”
“Now you can wear something with a story and be planet friendly”
Browsing an Army Surplus store in Hollywood, I discovered a Belgian military field jacket from the 60’s in incredible shape, like new really. I was so impressed by the quality and detail in a garment made for function, not style. I was sold. Wearing it felt like owning a truly unique piece. Since I had been printing on t-shirts from my archive of graphics it made me think to customize this jacket to create a one of a kind item.
This first jacket inspired me to imagine printing and embroidery in ways not explored yet. This also made me fall in love with the idea of repurposing existing garments and accessories. I now have a collection of jackets, belts, bags and shirts, all upcycled pieces. Now you can wear something with a story and be planet friendly. Stay tuned, I feel like I just scratched the surface on what is possible.
