St. Louis, Unite...
I am a young menswear designer from St. Louis, MO, and the staple of what I do is Neckties. I am a huge supporter of using old fabrics and making something new and unique from them. My newest collection of ties that will be coming out next spring will be made entirely of vintage oxford dress shirts. It is a great way to recycle and make a fashion statement.
In this project, I took an old wool skirt I found at a garage sale, it was a beautiful mixed woven houndstooth pattern, that had silver, navy, maroon, and dark green in it. Ties seem like a simple garment to make, but to make a high quality, durable, and classic Necktie, very precise sewing and cutting is a must. Enjoy the project! -Andrew David
