VITO & CHARLIE CO -Designed with Kathleen Bifulco, was a young designer menswear brand.
Vito and Charlie enjoyed major distribution in the best boutique designer stores at that time and major upscale department stores. GQ was one of our fans including DNR.
Later my design direction was moving away from retro Hawaiian and Urban Cowboy looks and into the Punk Rock styles using leopard voile shirts and leather looking spandex pants. The brand lasted three season ending with irreconcilable difference with my partner.
After studying pattern making, draping, sewing, and sketching at FIt and Parsons to get my fashion technical skills down ( I was a physics/ econonics major at Columbia) I launched MAXIMINO COUTURE which enjoyed three seasons.
Damsels in Damask was my first collection; 5 silhouettes on five completely different body types. Growing up in my fathers Haberdashery selling mens and ladies undergarments I know body types.
The next collection was Holidays On Ice featuring 3M Thinsulate which allowed for large sectional coat construction. The theme was black on black. Black velvet and Black gazar.
The last collection was Liberty using high twist jersey that was fluid and had weight. I loved draping these silhouttes. It was a nice balance between fit and flow.
At that time US buyers were reluctant to buy from high end designer collections.
KNOTS was a collection I created in NYC inspired by the Massai worrier shields. I then went to Turkey to produce counter samples and show them how to crochet using a flat pattern for production.
The collection was featured in Macy’s windows, celebrities wore it including Madonna.
My innovation was to cut full circular patterns that would drape closely to the body because leather yarn is relatively heavy and drapes well. It was called Knots because you had to knot the leather strips together to form the strands.
BANDARAMA Was a lot of fun!. I created a modular hair accessorie for women “Os” that enable them to completely create amazing hairstyles.
The collection was featured in magazines and enjoyed a wide distribution in the Major Department Stores.
RAIN RUNNER was one of the first if not THE First DTC fashion brand. Using the tools of Web 1 incuding owning my own server, installing ISDN lines and using a Mosaic browser
I collaborated with a trendy tech art gallery called AUDART to drop ship my raincoats after consumers could select their color and size.
A beautiful MVP but too early for adoption by consumers lacking secure user friendly payment technologies.
PROMOLINES was private label brand creating fashion collateral for Top Beauty Brands.
I was usually brought into the launch phases to smell the new fragrances, see the new bottles and marketing videos. It was very inspring to see how fragrances were created.
After 10 years I too developed a “nose.”
FEVER was the first fragrance I created. It was hot and sexy using spices for the mid tones. Fever was later sold.
