"Style is all about color and geometry. The first rule of Fashion is there are no rules. Just be different and stop wearing all black every day."
Dean John, fashion designer, was born and raised in the bustling, fashion forward, city of New York. Dean showed signs of talent at a very early age. By the time he was sixteen he rose above all the negativity of the city and started concentrating on fashion and music. It was then that he began fashioning his own clothes with bleach and a pair of scissors. His creations received many compliments and inquiries. Dean felt he was definitely on to something since people wanted to by his designs. His first garments consisted of selling tie-dyed T-shirts and bleached cut-up jeans. Since he was a self taught fashion designer, he had to work very hard to master the fit of a dress. He always admired dresses made of fine fabrics. His biggest influences were Betsey Johnson and Patricia Fields. At the age of 24, Dean learned how to operate a sewing machine under the tutelage of his grandmother. At that time, he began trying to make dresses. It took him a year of trial and error before he started sewing wonderfully tailored dresses that had that “one-of-a-kind” fit that women adore.
My biggest fashion faux pas was wearing a brand new shirt out and forgeting to remove the tag on the back of shirt.
