Dope Fashion: Does Anyone Make Real Shit Anymore? (@KakeTheGreat)

In the exploration for beginning and growing clothing brands to feature, I have come to be overwhelmed with the many T-Shirt brands inspired by the recent increase of high fashion street wear. Brands like Supreme and Hood By Air, make fashion designing look painfully easy that anyone can do it. Marketing their minimalistic, yet classic designs to the generation of the startup has caused an increase in brands that no longer construct clothes but rather arrange for a great screen-print idea. These guys out here playing designer is really cute in theory but it has brought me to the question, in the words of the Almighty Style Gawd Yeezy: Does anyone make real shit anymore?

Fashion is an art form and within that comes MANY avenues to approach the game. Shoes, Accessories, Handbags, Leather Goods, Menswear, Outwear... I could continue but I think you get the gist. T-Shirts and hats are not a means to an end. It has the indie fashion world in a uniform rut and frankly I am tired of seeing the same shit over and over. Please do something different, learn to sew, build a collection worthy of a show.  These are the things that create longevity in a brand, we only want to see you grow and I just want designers to capture the essence of real fashion.

I have done some research on beginning designers and I am starting to list of designers and brands actually constructing clothes. These young designers are crafting beautiful collections so be on the lookout for more information on them in the near future. If you or anyone you know has a brand they would like to be featured send information to
