Designer Spotlight: Ryan Cooke

Label: N-Dividual Klothing

Ryan's idea for a clothing line began in high school, but he quickly realized there was more to designing than just having an idea! It takes not only passion, but patience, hard work and A LOT OF TIME. So his dream was temporarily placed on hold.It wasn't until he graduated and began college at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA) when he realized that having his own line was something he really wanted to do.

Although he has his own distinct style, brands like: Stussy, Crooks and Castles, Stampede Life, Johnny Cupcakes, and Alife are all inspirations.

"Just a lot of researching of these brands taught me alot, and I took a few of their ideas then mixed and matched them with mine. But its definitley inspired off of skate, surf, and early mid 90's fashion," said Ryan.

From t-shirts and hoodies to skullies and sweatshirts. N-Dividuals Klothing is slowly taking over the streets of 757 and the 804. Definitely keep an eye open for this young designer, he has great potential and has what it takes to make it in the fashion Industry.
