Having always been creative and designing his own clothes, due to his tall height and long arm length meaning clothes hard to buy, Josh began designing his own clothes.
“I was at college for 7 years, during that time, the fashion department was right next to where I studied. There was a lot of stuff they were doing that, but it just missed, like it was empty, just clothing. I saw it and just thought, there was space there that I could put stuff in.
I wanted to see how far I could go with making something different. And it’s recycled as well, things bring back to life, up-cycling, what they used to be but better, custom work, using your imagination, to create what you want to create.”
Josh goes on to say his Mission and his Philosophy is a recycling, with ethical principles, using imagination to create one-off luxury wearable Jean Jacket Designs Art pieces.
After leaving College, Josh began collecting denim jackets and experimenting with designs.
After designing his own jackets with and for his two fellow Artists; Josh then designed for his immediate family and friends, and founded JeanJacket Designs. Jeanjacket Deigns then reached out to the Music Industry, and began making tour jackets for International DJs and Music Artists.
