Our Interview with Jason Gibaud, Fashion Designer

As many of you know, Evolution Kids Emporium had the unique opportunity to not only attend the ENK Children’s Club Show in New York City a month ago, but we were also able to interview a few remarkable talented designers. Today we are ending our series with one last (but certainly not least!) designer interview.

Please meet the amazing children’s fashion designer Jason Gibaud! In our post this week he shares not only what inspires him to design, but stories about his wife and family.

Paper Wings Little Mermaid Dress

Jimmy: Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from?

Jason: I’m originally from Melbourne, Victoria. My wife Michelle is from Toowoomba, Queensland. We met at Interior Design school at university in Brisbane. Pretty soon, we decided that Interior Design wasn’t for us and we were accepted into Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Arts. This is the same college that most of Australia’s familiar movie stars attended. I studied Costume Design while Michelle specialized in Set Design.

After we graduated, we worked all over the world in film and theatre on projects such as Moulin Rouge, Hook and the Star Wars. After we had our girls, we decided to settle down in one place – beautiful Mullumbimby in the coastal hinterland of northern New South Wales, Australia. This where we began Paper Wings about ten years ago. Now days, though we still have our operations base in Australia, the success of our label means that we are present in many countries, especially in the US. Out three girls, Michelle and I now live near our studio and workshop in Ho Chi Mingh City, Vietnam.

Jimmy: How would you define your city’s fashion?

Jason: Well…we’ve been a long time in Vietnam now, so I’d answer that by saying that Ho Chi Mingh City has a very dynamic, eclectic emerging scene in all the creative arts. There’s a big population of 18-25 year olds who embrace forward of trend concepts similarly to the Japanese, but who fuse traditional Vietnamese aesthetics and European influences in very interesting ways. It’s a great city to live in as a designer.

Jimmy: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?

Jason: When we decided to give up the nomadic lives of film and theatre. Hmmmm….seems we’re still almost as much on the move though!

Jimmy: How long have you worked as a designer?

Jason: Twenty-five years in one discipline or another, Ouch! That hurts when you say it out loud. I assure you that we remain suitably young at heart and immature on the inside!

Jimmy: What does fashion mean to you?

Jason: Avoiding adult concepts of ‘understatement’ or ‘chic’ is important to us. Kid’s clothing should not be shrunken down adult wear in our opinion. Children’s fashion is about making fun garments and outfits for kids that are comfortable, robust and which look and feel great in motion. We love the challenge of making clothing that is both ‘special’ and functional as day to day wear.

Paper Wings Miss Muffet Tee Skirt

 Jimmy: What are some of your accomplishments as a designer?

Jason: Our major accomplishment has been to translate our original concept of ‘Celebrating Childhood’ into worldwide collections that have delighted children and enhanced their sense of fun and self-esteem. It’s always about the kids. Accolades and industry acknowledgement is very nice, but there nothing more rewarding than having a little girl put on a Paper Wings skirt or dress and ‘hoola’ it into motion! 

Jimmy: Do you consider yourself an artist?

Jason: Ha! I suppose I am an artist in terms of the creating our prints, palettes, shapes and silhouettes. But an ‘artiste’ I am not. You can’t take yourself too seriously in children’s fashion or you’re missing the point. There’s no delicate geniuses around here! 

Jimmy: What matters to you most as a fashion designer?

Jason: I love the idea of children participating in their own sense of style. We create collections that are very carefully developed so that almost every top will work with almost every bottom. Each piece has its appeal as a special separate, but kids can also have fun with huge multitude of contrasts, matches and shape combinations when it comes to outfits. There are also many ties and rouches, so they can wear their tops, skirts and dresses in several lengths and looks.

In the end, we are not a ‘graphic design business’, printing creatively onto a limited number of standardized shapes. Every Paper Wings collection has dozens of unique patterns, shapes and blocks. It’s highly technical, but the trick is to make the cleverness in the build look pretty and effortless when it’s being worn.

Jimmy: What do you like best about designing clothes?

Jason: During our range development we deliberately set out to make memorable ‘favorites’. That’s why we have such generous sizing and fits. The fabrics we use will last many years, so we love the concept of a child wearing their Paper Wings favorites for ages. The knack is to be subtle with our signature aesthetics so that each seasonal collection can work the last – and the one before that. This season’s skirt can go with a top from the previous summer. The development of signature is a test of skill and a great pleasure to pursue. 

Jimmy: What do you dislike about designing clothes?

Jason: Well, there’s very little that glamorous in the world of creating high-end clothing! It is actually very demanding, cyclic work that requires long hours and unstinting commitment to the smallest of details. Talent is a pre-requisite, but the hard work isn’t for everyone. I have my bad days, but if I didn’t passionately love designing children’s clothes – even on the bad days – I’d be crazy to put myself through it. It’s truly a labor of love.

Jimmy: Where do you get your inspiration?

Jason: I’m immensely interested in folk art and crafts, and the use of traditional techniques and fabrics. The technical structure of Victorian era silhouettes, especially when they’re put in motion, is fascinating. I also love the poignant whimsy of vintage storybooks. They’re fun and pretty, yet always seem to capture a sense of mystery or adventure that children adore.

Paper Wings Pink Marle Tank

Jimmy: How would you define your personal style?

Jason: I would say my style is what you’d expect of a ‘mad-scientist’ creative designer who is frantically busy and living in the tropics. Make of that what you will! Guess you’ll have to pay me a visit to judge for yourself. Michelle – though she may kill me for saying it – is the closest thing to typifying what you’d imagine an ‘upscaled’ Paper Wings child would look like when they’re grown up. Kind of free flowing and a bit zany, but never completely haphazard. Stylish, fun and unique. Phew…I think I got out of that one.

Jimmy: How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

Jason: Celebrating Childhood.

Jimmy: What are some of your fashion goals?

Jason: We want to continue to refine our boys collections. We like to hit themes which are fun and cheeky rather than ‘tough’ or ‘aggressive’. It’s a challenge, but we’re finding it very rewarding. We’ll be doing accessories soon. And look out for a women’s collection!

Jimmy: What are your favorite colors to work with and why?

Jason: A quick look at any of our collections will tell you that I like many, many colors. However, our enduring signature is our red and white stripe.

Jimmy: What are your favorite fabrics to work with and why?

Jason: Again, I wouldn’t single out any particular fabric. As a costume designer I’m stimulated by the intricacies and demands of a variety of woven weights, which dictate drop and movement. But with my children’s hat on, the gorgeous certified organic cotton jersey we’ve found community farmed in southern India is hard to beat. I’d tell you where but I’d have to…well you know the rest. The hand feel and durability are supreme, while the ethical farming practices add to the joy of working with it.

Jimmy: What are your favorite patterns [prints] to work with and why?

Jason: Vintage storybook…as above

 Jimmy: What was your favorite outfit as a child?

Jason:  Aussie boys from my era generally ran around in surf trunks or football jerseys. I did secretly dream of looking more unique though!

Jimmy: What’s your favorite piece from your current line?

Jason: Racer-back Jersey Maxi Dress with Hi-Lo ties. A truly beautiful dress for special occasions (or every day) which can be tortured in the playground then easily washed and dried.

Jimmy: In your opinion, what is the biggest faux paux in children’s fashion?

Jason: Shrunken down adult wear. As well as being a bit creepy, any design element that causes kids to keep making adjustments or ‘fixing’ their clothes is a big no- no. An adult in a delicate fitted dress with string shoulder straps is hardly going be throwing herself headfirst down a slide or spinning around on the spot until she falls over. The trick is to make a children’s style look pretty and whimsical while keeping it comfortable and easy to wear.

Jimmy: Do you have kids of your own? What do they love to wear?

Jason: We have three girls, all of whom have developed very distinct tastes and personal preferences. None of them could be easily pigeon holed…they’re very unique dressers. We’ve certainly learned a lot from the over the years as Paper Wings test pilots!

Jimmy: Why do you like working with EKE (or want to work with EKE)?

Jason: What is not to like about the super fabulous Jimmy Brown???!!! Jimmy has an extremely discerning eye for color, shape and fabrics. He also has a wonderful passion for presenting his clients with special collections that probably won’t be seen 20 times in every playground. We love catching up with Jimmy in the US – he never fails to find a Paper Wings outfit combination that we hadn’t thought of!

It’s fun and a privilege to work with such a like-minded person. EKE and its clients are genuine favorites of ours.

 

A big THANK YOU Jason and all the designers who were generous with their time and helped bring these interviews to our blog. And thank you to all our readers as well, we hope you enjoyed this series.

Our Interview with Stephanie Strike, Fashion Designer

This week is flying by for the team here at EKE! How about you?

Today on the blog we are excited to continue our designer interview series! While in New York City for the ENK Children’s Club Show we were lucky to have the chance to chat with Urban Sunday’s Stephanie Strike. During out meet up we talked about the West Coast lifestyle and of course ties! Read on!

Jimmy: Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from?

I grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. I’m a West coast girl.

Jimmy: What do you dislike about designing clothes?

I’m not one to complain 🙂

Jimmy: Where do you get your inspiration?

It sort of bubbles up on its own as I’m putting a line together… There’s no external source I’m usually looking to. An a lot of inspiration comes from being practical about what a product is and who is going to buy it.

Jimmy: Do you consider yourself an artist?

No, not in the sense that most people mean. I’m a pattern maker by trade, and that is a much more technical skill rather than an artistic one. I focus a lot on the detail and quality of my products. Of course I try to make them look as nice as possible, but in the end am more focused on presenting a high-quality, useful product than on creating something artistic.

Jimmy: What matters to you most as a fashion designer?

Creating useful, high-quality products. Everybody’s aesthetics are different, but everybody wants something that works and lasts.

Jimmy: What do you like best about designing clothes?

I love seeing a finished line laid out for the first time.

Jimmy: How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

We picked the name Urban Sunday because we were designing a line of boys ties (what many people think of as “Sunday clothes”), but wanted to give it a more hip, current style. The clothes and accessories we offer are a mix of urban and preppy and work dressed up or down.

Jimmy: What are some of your fashion goals?

I’d like to expand the line to include more accessories and a broader boys’ clothing line.

Jimmy: What are your favorite colors to work with and why?

I love blues and teals. That’s good, because they do well in the boys’ market.

Jimmy: What are your favorite fabrics to work with and why?

Woven 100% cotton is my favorite… It holds form well in shirts and looks really great as a tie, and you can do a lot pattern and print-wise with it. 100% silk for ties is beautiful too, of course.

Jimmy: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer? 

In college I realized that I had a knack for it. One of my professors inspired me to move to New York and give it a shot. I got an internship as a pattern maker with Vera Wang and have never looked back.

Jimmy: How long have you worked as a designer?

My first real design job was that internship in New York, which was now more than seven years ago.

Jimmy: What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion is one of the most personal ways we express ourselves. Every day people pick out their clothes, and consciously or subconsciously are choosing something to say about themselves. In the children’s clothing world, that personal statement is something parents are making about both themselves and their kids. I think parents care as much or more about their children’s fashion statements than their own.

Jimmy: What are some of your accomplishments as a designer?

Working on Vera Wang’s Resort collection is certainly a highlight, but really I’m most proud of starting my own line.

Jimmy: What are your favorite patterns [prints] to work with and why?

I like plaids, because there are so many infinite combinations of color and pattern you can have.

Jimmy: What was your favorite outfit as a child?

A red gingham dress with white ruffles on it! And I’d finish it off by borrowing my mom’s red high heels.

Jimmy: What’s your favorite piece from your current line?

I love the Oliver shirt. It’s a grey chambray with a white pindot. I think it’s very unique and stylish. I like it so much I named it after my son!

Jimmy: In your opinion, what is the biggest faux paux in children’s fashion?

I like lines that communicate their brand through their design without having to rely on embroidered logos.

Jimmy: Do you have kids of your own? What do they love to wear? 

I have two boys, ages four and one. They love comfy clothes, particularly sweat pants (which they call “comfy pants”). They definitely wear their fair share of ties too!

Jimmy: Why do you like working with EKE (or want to work with EKE)?

The owner, Jimmy, has been a great long-standing customer who always picks out our favorite fabrics.

 

Thanks again Stephanie for taking the time to talk with us! We hope all of our loyal EKE fans enjoyed this exclusive interview and will check out your new line!

Our Interview with Laura Angotti, Fashion Designer

Another great week down here in Texas! But we’re missing NYC too! So today we’re going to continue reminiscing about the wonderful ENK Children’s Club show we attended just a few weeks ago!

Let’s return to our EXCLUSIVE designer interview series. This week, we chat with Laura Angotti of Rowdy Sprout about her amazing career, her dedication to made in USA, and her personal style.

Laura Angotti and her son.

Laura Angotti & her son.

Jimmy: Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN on a farm like property. Tractors, creek stomping, the whole bit. A pretty great childhood. I went off to school in Colorado at CSU. I thought I wanted to be a forest ranger but quickly found art and switched majors. This led me to NYC to work in art museums. All the while I had been sewing and making things. I was a big dead head at the time and used to make dresses, hats, necklaces etc for dead shows and to sell. I guess this was the start of my designing! When I moved to NYC I got involved in costume design and clothing design.

A woman I worked with at the united nations art program opened a clothing store in Williamsburg. She asked me to make a line. I did some iron on transfer tees and dresses that were all rock n roll. They sold out in 2 weeks. This was the birth of Rowdy Sprout.

I moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA for costume design. I thought Rowdy Sprout would simply help pay me and support my costume design career. Instead I have both a costume design career (mainly commercials) and Rowdy Sprout. 2 careers was not the plan but I love both and cannot seem to let one go.

I have 2 kids a boy-3 and a girl-1 year old. I now live in malibu with my husband and kiddos and 2 enormous dogs. Life is crazy busy but good. I can’t complain.

Jimmy: What do you dislike about designing clothes?

When things go wrong, and season after season something always goes wrong. I never seem to make my deadlines. Theres always something late or wrong with the manufacturing. Its just hard to get everyone else to care as much as you do.

Jimmy: Where do you get your inspiration?

Truly everywhere.

Jimmy: How would you define your personal style?

tom boy / boho chic / hippy

Jimmy: How would you define your city’s fashion?

Los Angeles has it all. From beverly hills over priced high fashion, to homeless hobo chic, to hip hop, to preppy. Seriously we have too much to even define. Its amazing to see the people in this city. Great people watching

Jimmy: Do you consider yourself an artist?

Yes, absolutely.

Jimmy: What matters to you most as a fashion designer?

  • Comfort for kids is pretty up there. If its not cozy you will not see me selling it.
  • Alternative options to generic cheap goods.
  • Made in USA.
  • Unique and interesting color combos.

Jimmy: What do you like best about designing clothes?

Running a clothing line is about 8% designing, the rest running a business. The design part is the most fun. When a line comes together and makes sense it is truly a great and rewarding feeling. You constantly are giving birth to new ideas and lines. Its like having another child.

Jimmy: How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

Cool for kids.

Jimmy: What are some of your fashion goals?

Thats a great question, I am dying to create more items that are not “rock n roll” but just great clothing. Fall ’14 is the start of Rowdy Sprout unplugged. We shall see how that goes!

Jimmy: What are your favorite colors to work with and why?

Muted, not primary. I just find them easier to look at.

Jimmy: What are your favorite fabrics to work with and why?

Soft, anything soft. I hate itchy clothing and if you can’t put it in the washing machine, it ain’t for me.

Jimmy: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer? 

I still wouldn’t call myself a “fashion designer” haha. Clothing and costume yes. Fashion…..not so much! I still am not quite sure how it all happened to be honest! When I hear the question I think? what? I’m a fashion designer??

haha!

Jimmy: How long have you worked as a designer?

Since 1999. Costume design since 1997.

Jimmy: What does fashion mean to you?

I tell ya, I am not a fashionista for sure. I have always appreciated the quirky side of clothing. Never mainstream. When I started Rowdy Sprout I did not have kids but thought that all the light blue and light pink was not so great. Hence black rock n roll tees for kids. Mind you this was before anyone else was doing it.

I think in a perfect world I look at fashion more through my costume design goggles. People express themselves through their clothing. It is the first thing you see and it can make quite an impression. It can tell you an awful lot about a person.

Jimmy: What are some of your accomplishments as a designer?

I am just tickled that my line which is created, designed, and run by me is still going after all these years. I thought it would be a flash in the pan. We now have an amazing following and grow every year. I’m so blessed.

I also am truly proud of my commercial and costume design career. I’ve done some pretty fun wild spots.

We are loving these fun and funky designs. Add a little Rock n' Roll to your kid's style today!

We are just loving these fun and funky designs. Add a little Rock n’ Roll to your kid’s style today!

Jimmy: What are your favorite patterns [prints] to work with and why?

Don’t get to do that much but my Sleepy Sprout line I created was all designs I based off of vintage patterns. I love vintage.

Jimmy: What was your favorite outfit as a child?

Anything handed down from my brother.

Jimmy: What’s your favorite piece from your current line?

The Who lightweight sweatshirt. SO soft, so cute.

Jimmy: In your opinion, what is the biggest faux paux in children’s fashion?

I don’t think there is one. What I think is hideous is someone else’s favorite look. People have to express themselves and each child finds joy in wearing a very different thing. Each parent buys clothing that represents how they want their child to be seen. Its a reflection of themselves, especially when they are dressing young kids. I think its great to have a huge variety.

Jimmy: Do you have kids of your own? What do they love to wear? 

Yes, my son wears Rowdy Sprout non stop.
My daughter is a little more girly and forcing me to want to grow my line to make more options I want to put on her.

Jimmy: Why do you like working with EKE (or want to work with EKE)?

Cause who else inquires about what their designers are thinking?!!! I mean this is really pretty great. Took me a month to fill it out but I’m so thrilled you took the time to ask. Really great!

Our Interview with Paul Nguyen, Fashion Designer

Happy Spring Everyone!

A few weeks ago, we traveled to New York City for the ENK Children’s Club Show to choose pieces for our Spring ’14 collection. We met some extremely talented designers, discovered incredible pieces for the new line, and enjoyed big city life for a few days! Over the coming weeks, we will feature interviews with a few of the designers chosen to be featured in our Spring ’14 collection.

This week we are happy to introduce a very accomplished designer and dear friend, Paul Nguyen from Fore Axel and Hudson.

Paul Nguyen Owner, Fore Axel & Hudson

Paul Nguyen
Owner, Fore Axel & Hudson

Jimmy: Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from? 

Paul: I was born in Vietnam and move the U.S when I was only four years old. Our family immigrated to the states as result of the war in Vietnam. My parents had to uproot our family of six in hopes of a new beginning in a foreign country and settled in California back in 1975.

Jimmy: What do you dislike about designing clothes?

Paul: As you’re alway thinking ahead, the years goes by extremely quick. Additionally, with having so many people involved in the process from concept to production, executing your original ideas and concepts can get lost in the translation.

Jimmy: Where do you get your inspiration?

Paul: I find inspiration from movies, magazines, and definitely get inspired by other artists and designers alike. I try to create fun exciting pieces that both child and parents can relate too without being serious or too juvenile.

Jimmy: How would you define your personal style?

Paul: I feel sometimes the clothes I design is something I could possibly wear. That makes sense because it’s an extension of who I am. My style is about mixing pieces that works together. On days you feel sporty and other you feel more dapper. As you mature your sense of style evolves and you know what accentuates your looks.

Jimmy: How would you define your city’s fashion?

Paul: Being from the West Coast, (California) it’s definitely has an eclectic sense of fashion. There’s a laid back vibe with the surrounding beaches and warm weather year round. But you also find a edgier vibe with emphasis in washing techniques, worn looks, and vintage inspired as premium denims brands all hail from Los Angeles.

Jimmy: Do you consider yourself an artist?

Paul: Yes, as a designer, you constantly need to be inspired and create new designs and evolve as a designer. To be unique and stand apart from your competition, it’s important to infuse your artistic perspective from finding complementing colors palette and beautiful textures in fabrications making a cohesive look.

Jimmy: What matters to you most as a fashion designer?

Paul: Being able to create freely and creating not just a article of clothing but rather a lifestyle.

Jimmy: What do you like best about designing clothes? 

Paul: Mixing different fabrications and bringing them to life. Especially for boys clothing, to add a little details that makes it unique. For instance, adding a small pocket inside of our fedora or novelty contrast fabrics to add a pop color.

Jimmy: How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

Paul: Classics with a be of a twist with a hip vibe. I like to think if you spot a kid wearing our hats or apparel, you would recognize it’s a Fore Axel and Hudson or Fore N Birdie item.

Jimmy: What are some of your fashion goals?

Paul: The idea of designing adults clothing again, particularly men clothing would be interesting. Something I can design and be able to wear or other guys would wear would be cool.

Jimmy: What are your favorite colors to work with and why?

Paul: For me, finding new colors each season is one of the of the first inspirations in a collection. It’s sets the mood and tone of the collection. We try to incorporate groupings with colors that compliments each other.

Jimmy: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer? 

Paul: I’ve always love to draw as young kid and in high school going to all the thrift stores L.A had to offer was a ritual for me and my friends. Looking for that one of a kind pair of shoes, or a vintage shirt or jacket was my first appreciation of clothing. Admiring designers such as Georgio Armani, Alexander McQueen, and Issey Miyake, I appreciated the art behind the designs and theatrical runways shows. I realized at that point I wanted to become a fashion designer and attended Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.

Jimmy: How long have you worked as a designer?

Paul: I’ve been a clothing designer about 17 years now. Since graduating from Otis Art Institute in ’96, I‘ve been very fortunate to work with many companies both in the adults and children market. My goal from the beginning was to design Women Contemporary but started designing Children apparel about 9 years ago. Designing children apparel as my kids were born was so fun and exciting and never look back.

Jimmy: What does fashion mean to you?

Paul: Fashion means the freedom to create and allowing an individual that creative outlet in expressing themselves. It’s an extension of who they are and reflects how they feel in any particular moment.

I feel fashion goes beyond just clothing. You can find fashion from someone who’s confidence or how they carry themselves. However, fashion should always remain positive regardless where you find it.

Jimmy: What are some of your accomplishments as a designer?

Paul: A few of my accomplishment as a designer, was being able to create new brands/labels during my career. Including a women contemporary bottoms collection, a baby gifting line, and currently, Fore Axel and Hudson. Creating an idea or a fresh concept and build it from the ground up and into a brand is so fulfilling.

Jimmy: What was your favorite outfit as a child? 

Paul: Growing up in the eighties, fashion was both fun and awkward at the same time. Looking back it now, you can laugh about it. My favorite pieces was a gray nylon pants with about 12 zippers. It’s was parachute pants and I wore it any chance I had.

Jimmy: What’s your favorite piece from your current line?

Paul: From the Fall 14 collection, my favorite piece from the collection is the Patch Blazer. It’s a mini-herringbone blazer with mixing of different fabrication that is worn with jeans or dressier pant for a polish look.

Jimmy: In your opinion, what is the biggest faux paux in children’s fashion?

Paul: The reason we started Fore Axel and Hudson, all we saw for boys were the plain and obvious graphics (Dinosaurs and basketballs) driven tee and nothing else. All the clothing were very influence by their ages and nothing sophisticated we found in the market.

Jimmy: Do you have kids of your own? What do they love to wear? 

Paul: Yes, I have two children, Isabella and Hudson, 8 and 6. As the get older, they have a sense of what they like and don’t like. They love easy, soft, and comfortable clothing but still have a fashionable look to them.

Jimmy: Why do you like working with EKE (or want to work with EKE)?

Paul: Working with EKE has been amazing. They take their business very serious and on the pulse with going on in the market. It’s important to offer their loyal customers unique brands and we’ve been lucky to be a part of their success.
