Brigid KO Designs

BY BRIGID OESTERLING
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 11, 2014

Designer Brigid Oesterling of BrigidKO creates couture costuming and clothing made primarily from innertubes and recycled materials. Her focus has been to use innertubes from cars, motorcycles and bicycles. Not your typical recycled-wear, the recycled rubber material often has a leather look which the designer masterfully balances with other materials, often masking the identity of the innertube. Her work is innovative and, these unique pieces are both delicate and bold.

Fetishizing Fashion Brands

BY KEVIN JAEDON
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

"Where do you work?" After making the switch to men's fetishwear brand Nastypig, fashion designer Kevin Jaedon wants people to know that he is NOT a nasty pig! 

Kevin discusses how all brands give off distinct connotations. Whether designed to be high fashion, conservative and work-oriented, or to wear at the International Mister Leather convention, you never know who might actually be the brains behind what you are wearing! 

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, August 11th, 2015.
