Earlier this week I had a chance ask Wicked Lester Clothing Owner/Designer Janine Gibbons a few questions about Wicked Lester Clothing and what inspires her. Check out the new collection from Wicked Lester Clothing available today.
Dante: When did you start designing clothes and when did you decide to turn it into a business?
Janine Gibbons: I have always customized my own clothes from since I can remember, I did fashion design through college and fashion styling at university, so it was natural progression to fall into design. I started Wicked Lester Clothing A little over a year ago now and I am blown away by the support.
Dante: Your pieces look as if they are mostly geared toward the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Community what bands are you into?
Janine Gibbons: They are indeed. Some of my favorite bands are Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Pantera, King Diamond, Dimmu Borgir, Van Halen, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden
Dante: Do you create pieces by request?
Janine Gibbons: Every now and then I open for custom orders to create with a customer.
Dante: How long does it take for you to finish a collection and how do you decide how many pieces are going to be made?
Janine Gibbons: The two go hand in hand, depending on what creative mood I am in will depend on the time I spend on individual pieces. I also look at customer demand, it is important to me to give my customers what they want
Dante: When did you last collection come out and when do you expect to have your next collection ready?
Janine Gibbons: My last collection came out 2 weeks ago and I have a new collection out this Sunday 21st Sept at 6PM UK time on http://www.wickedlesterclothing.com
