A few weeks back I mentioned that I would be trying something new soon...well the time has arrived!
I'm going to do monthly (when possible) interviews with some local (DMV) talent. I mainly want to target those in the fashion industry but I'm open to interviewing any fresh new talent and getting their fashion input.
This week I am spotlighting Anthony (IG: @ayeeeiindian), a local denim designer who also happens to be my cousin.
I sat down with Anthony & asked a few questions about how he's changing the denim game.
Check out more of his work after the interview....I'm definitely getting my custom denim soon!
What inspires your style?
Honestly my surroundings, from the music I play to the videos I watch. Style is always incorporated it's just from someone else point of view.
What made you want to become a fashion designer?
I was always creative but I just got tired of going somewhere and everybody look like clones, wearing the same shoes, shirt, and the same basic $60 denim. So I figured if I can make every outfit from just a pair of denim then all you need is a white tee and forces...and I bet you still stand out!
What celebrity would you want rocking your pieces?
Anybody that's down to work but Pharrell Williams would be dope, Donna Karen, Wiz & even Virgil Abloh or Rick Owen. Anybody who can see the vision from my point of view I'm willing to work with.
How long does it typically take you to design an item?
A week and a half most times it can take two weeks but I have my days when it's "here today done today".
Anything you want my readers to know about your personal life?
I won't be where I'm at forever...but when I finally get there it will be all worth it.
What's next for you?
In 2019, I plan on going far just got to keep working but I'm working on big projects. I'm going to finish 2018 with a BANG though at the last minute.
Enjoy the rest of your day fashion lovers!
