I always keep an eye on what our past dapperQ models are wearing. Recently we found this fire look on Insta featuring unique denim work.
The creative mind behind the vest is designer Ciara Banks, who shared more about the design inspiration and creative process with dapperQ:
“I first found inspiration for my work from seeing the denim vest/jacket trend starting to resurface earlier this year. What I noticed was that while denim was becoming more popular, everything looked the same. What I bring to the table is a custom look for each individual. I started making denim vests for friends. I used a combination of characteristics of their personality along with a touch of their personal style to create each piece. No one garment is duplicated, making everyone feel that while they are up to date with the latest trend; they are an individual with a unique piece of original work. The garments are a mixture of old and new materials. Old denim jackets paired with colorful themed fabrics to give it a new age vintage look, all sewn by hand.”
Vests run about $85-125. Not bad considering a mass produced Levi’s denim vest will run you about the same. Only, with a Ciara creation, you can have a one-of-a-kind piece in your closet that works for all seasons.
