Celebrities wearing my designs

It was the most exciting moments of my life. Watching television and see something I made literally from my bedroom. I’m just a brown kid, an underdog from Seattle and I wasn’t supposed to be here and get this far. I still remember my first job in the industry. My best friend Danny and I would go to the trade shows (Magic, Project, Capsule, etc.) in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York to bring awareness to our creations. After the show, was the after party, and outside the club, someone was like “Nice jacket where’d you get that ?”

I turned around and I told him I made it. I looked at the guys and they looked familiar. It was Supercr3w, the winners from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew. I have always been a fan of b-boy and dance culture. The B-boys always got the girls, they just had so much style and flavor and influenced me a lot.

They asked me if I could provide clothes for the show. I was excited and I told them I would. It was my first break ! After filming of the show, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas approached Supercr3w and asked them where they got their wardrobe. After that, things became a blur and jobs just started coming in.

SEE ALL: My Kanye West portfolio

1_line-01

 

This is my Kanye West portfolio I compiled around October 2016. It’s been a crazy experience to be able to work with Kanye and the team. I am grateful and never thought I would have this opportunity. Kanye has influenced and inspired my style, design process, and philosophy.

I would listen to his music while I would sew garments in my bedroom living at my mums house in college to actually being in the office and listening to him working on an album while I work is unbelievable. I used Adobe illustrator and photoshop to create my portfolio.

Documented & compiled some of the garments I’ve made for the past 10 years. I shot everything with my Canon DLSR camera and edited the images on camera raw, Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop. In my blog “How to take pictures of your outfit for the gram – Product photography,” I talk about in detail the process, workflow, what kind of specific lens I use, etc.
