Interview with Clothing Designer / Jeantrix | Edition IX
How do you describe your Brand to people?
Its hard to describe it. You really just have to see it but for the most part we describe it as fun meets fantasy.
What is the motivation behind your whole movement?
bringing fun back to fashion. What it’s really suppose to be about. There shouldn’t be a template for the way you dress.
When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?
In 2003 we were just creating our own hand painted pieces. They were highly requested and in 2004, we decided to creative a clothing line for everyone.
And what was the first article of clothing you ever designed?
Now that we look back, the ugliest baggiest t-shirts ever!
What was the main factor for launching your line when you did?
Something fresh and new and pretty much something that the stores were lacking.
What is your favorite part about conceptualizing a design?
The amount of different things you can do with clothing. Theres no limit.
Do you feel like what you are doing is important?
To us its very important. One day the world will see it as we do.
Your concepts are very unique and original is there a pressure to always maintain that consistency with your new designs?
It’s not really too much pressure. Once you start putting pressure on it, it kind of takes the fun out of it. So we just let the ideas flow.
How do you separate yourself from others?
We really don’t really go by whats “in” as far as the trends. We may open a fashion magazine here and there for inspiration but never try to duplicate.
Would you sell if someone came along and offered to buy you out?
Well how much are we talking? lol but seriously as of now no,not at all!
Lastly, could you talk about any long-term goals you have in mind?
New York fashion week, more magazines, and hopefully some Tv appearances
