Asher Levine Costume & Fashion Design
Asher Levine is the head designer and founder of his self-named fashion design studio in the heart of New York City. His contemporary vision of style has been sought out by many A-list clients looking for something different and provocative for their next event. Below are a few of the pieces that I had the joy of crafting on while working with Asher.

This jacket was a custom design project for Will.i.am done at Asher Levine. My role in the project was creating concept sketches such as the one shown above (on right) to help develop the project in its preproduction stage.

This is another men's bag with a removable strap that I help to create for Asher Levine, going back and forth between sketching and building by hand. Also shown is one of the hand drawings I did for the design.
VICE Magazine Dog Show
Asher Levine's team had a commission to create a set of dog costumes for an event put on by Vice Magazine.
I created many concepts for the canine costumes, and in their completion this one was selected to feature on the cover of that months issue of Vice Magazine. Also shown is my original concept drawing.
Fabric Textile Design
I fully illustrated this original fabric textile in graphite, and arranged the repeat using photoshop to ready the image for printing. The textile was used in Asher Levine's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.
When Asher Levine was ready to feature his Spring/Summer 2013 Collection on the runway he chose to hand out pamphlets at his show that were above the norm, so we created a fictional origin tale for his garments. I then illustrated a booklet of storyboards and mock lab diagrams to help tell the story visually.
