“Create your own style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.”
— Anna Wintour
My name is Dwayne Baker (or nickname 'Wheezy') and I'm a constructor from Washington, DC.
I have always been attracted to the uncommon sense of fashion. And throughout my portfolio you will capture my abnormal ideas that I bring to reality.
I see the act of sewing as a form of constructing. My purpose is to serve a selected audience that loves to showcase their true identity through grails that they will archive forever. Being able to fabricate my own and my audience ideas to life from start to finish allows me to have full control of my imagination without any limitations. I'm excited to showcase all of my designs to the world.
My work relies heavily on attention to detail when hand-constructing garments. I love to source for the best quality textures while brainstorming beautiful pattern designs that I can imagine.
"I believe in quality and craftsmanship over hype. Furthermore I believe the price of an item is dictated by the materials used and the amount of time and effort put into creating it. That's where the true value lies.
Putting in the countless hours to perfect every detail shows the quality and longevity of my products and that path will forever remain the same." (via my role model, @sheronbarber)
