A.K.S. Apparel

Alexandra Schol
Online Student, Fashion Merchandising
Acrylic paint & fabric medium

With the Wynwood Walls in Miami, Florida as backdrops, these particular denim jackets are all custom made with a meaning and story behind each one. I hand paint each one, with typical painting taking about 8-10 hours split between 3-4 days.

Each jacket combines natural and fairytale-like elements to create a whimsical design that is not only unique, but just feels good to show off. My goal in painting these is to have the people that wear them feel comfortable in standing out; I believe that everyone should be able to paint their own picture and tell their own story!

Custom Pieces of Walking Art

Michael Elliott
Woodbridge Student, Business Management and Administration
Python snake skin, black American alligator, Louis Vuitton, lambskin, pig suede, and custom printed fabric

The work I am display is handmade custom sneaker made by me through a use of exotic materials, designer material, custom fabrics, and premium Italian leather, each shoe takes about 45-60 hours to make depending on the complexity. My inspiration is to be able to create a design in my mind and be able to execute into a real life walking piece of art. My motivation to design shoes is to be the best in the game, to be able to show young people that a corporate life isn't always necessary and that if you truly love doing something to go out and chance your dream and make it happen, your biggest enemy is yourself.
