SS18 Ready to Wear: Custom

It feels like it has been a few months since I have uploaded a blog showcasing all of the commission’s I have recieved from my clients. First, I must show one of the pieces I am most proud of!

One of my favorite creations this year! This denim features a removable 50″ denim train with ruffles, distressing, shoulder chain detail, and a brass zipper trimmed signature crown patch on the back.

 

Below are pieces I have created under a collective/elevated vision. A rarity as a design creative is to give power to your target market- it is a surprise at times, and at other times it is a more wearable version of what I would normally do.

Danny Dymond’s Album Cover

 

Congratulations to Danny Dymond for releasing his album, “Nightlife, Love, and Liberty” last night at The Hideout in Toronto.

It has been so much fun to work on custom clothing for his stage performances this last year, and was a true honor to have my custom feather + chain embellished jacket with a specialized zipper diamond motif on the back make it onto his album artwork + tour merchandise.

More photos coming soon of his performance, primarily wearing our collaboration pieces throughout.

Also, here is a photograph of him in our custom look that made the front page of the newspaper in his hometown, where he performed proudly at a pride parade alongside fans and protesters.
