Conceptualizing and producing garments for a catwalk show is a high pressure endeavor, but with the creative talent in our office combined with great partners such as artist Aaron Rose, designer Nazak Nowtash, innovators Lumi Inks, and most importantly, the great team at Hasbro, we were able to design and make 15 looks within a short time period. The hours were long...But the rewards were great! Here, Junk Food Art House invites you to see some of the behind the scenes process at our Los Angeles office...
