Additional Information


Bradford dreams big for a 13 year old. He has been sketching, designing and creating since the young age of three, all in hopes of becoming the next big designer. Bradford finds inspiration to create his daring designs from his favorite designers Versace, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. Bradford brought his mother Dana on board to assist him and for her creative input and fun nature.

This street chic look is a work of art and dedication. Bradford used a trendy denim on denim  look for this outfit and incorporated patchwork and a modern hand drawn mouth design to give this fashion piece personality.

Patchwork demin fashion is a top trend for the year. Here are some tips and tricks for creating a similar look:

  • One of the best investments is a good pair of sewing scissors.  Use them only for fabric and keep them hidden from others who will want to borrow them.
  • A dull rotary cutter blade is more dangerous than a sharp blade as it takes more pressure to cut with a dull blade.  
  • Use a Teflon pressing cloth when using fusible adhesives to secure fabric appliques to another fabric.
  • For flat, neat curved seams, cut out notches in the seam allowance to the seam line for outside curves and clip the seam allowance for inside curves.
  • For topstitching to stand out use a heavier thread with the topstitch needle or two spools of all purpose thread going through the needle.
  • Purchase the best fabric your budget allows.  The time you put into the project is worth far more than the cost of the fabric and the project will be much nicer.
