Are you the type of person that always look to the past? Do you love old 80s songs more than the pop songs you here now? Do you adore vintage clothes? Or are you a person of today, preferring everything current whether it be the current version of iphone or that trend you saw in Zara or Topshop? Or do you prefer the future living life in a fastpaced world. You create trends for the future or make things that people will eventually want.
In fashion I was taught to always look at three sides of the timeline. You look at your past to know what happened to avoid making mistakes and learning from it. You look at the present and see what people actually need or want . You look at the future forecasting trends, demands, or societal changes.
I think it is this inclination for a balance on the three that allow me to understand fashion in a very diverse sense. You see styles from people that adhere to the past, styles that are current and styles that are unique.
As a designer I search constantly for new inspirations. And its easy to find as long as you allow yourself to be open to new things. One thing about lookbook is it shows me whats new, whats not and whats ahead. But when it comes to designing I try not to look at what is now but what is ahead because fashion is super fast paced working months in advanced brewing , creating trends that will affect the next season.
As much as I could, I practice what I preach by looking at styles that may not be understood now but can be understood months to come. This view towards the future allows me to be more open minded in the styles I wear. It also taught me to never say never, because life is too short to be boring, conventional or conformist.
A good friend told me that why bother be like everyone else when you can always stand out. I guess this is the era of Individuality as attested by the numerous stylish individuals Ive met and hopefully will meet in the future here in lookbook:)

about the look:
Combining historical references to Victorian leg o mutton sleeves and creating a modern take on the construction using denim, the jacket creates an elongated shoulder with rounded sleeves by means of pleated tucks. Patent and leather combined with the denim creates a very rock and roll attitude. Grey beads fashioned in an edwardian style neckpiece gives the ruggedness of denim an opulent twist.

Beautiful jacket and I totally agree to what you say in the description. Imagine how people would dress if they could all design custom clothes. But unfortunately big companies like Zara will always sell a lot because of their accessible prices. I do hope that in the future more people will be able to express themselves trough fashion in a unique way. Till then I'll continue admiring your looks!
Andre Judd

This look is outstanding Andre!!!! I really enjoyed reading your piece!! I completely agreed with what you had to say and you certainly practice what you preach. And this look shows that!!! First of all i love the leg o mutton sleeves and i what i love most about it is how it's an old fashion style but this one has a modern take by it being made in denim. I just think that is brilliant in itself!! I love how you've styled it with that statement necklace which has vintagey feel. This look is So so amazing Andre!!!!!!

Hyped!! :):)
