How do you stay original and continue to create new work when everything is out there all the time?
I NEVER look at the brands and players in the kids category. Instead I’m looking at men’s and women’s fashion, home decor, art, pop culture, etc. That’s what I find inspiring.
If you could be copied for one thing, what would it be and why?
Our silver bomber jackets have become iconic of the Rockets of Awesome brand. The bomber jackets are a token of the coolest inclusive kids club we’re creating – which exists to support and celebrate kids’ individuality and confidence. Anyone who wants to align with us on supporting and driving that independence and confidence among kids is welcome to join our mission!
