We had the good fortune of connecting with Michael Taylor and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michael, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I chose a artistic and creative career for a few reasons one being the uniqueness of being a creative. It all started when I was in high school I was in co-op which Is when you go to school and get out early to go to work. This granted me my first job as a Screen Printer. Having that job allowed me the opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge of how a design was made and also how to apply it to a garment. That’s what sparked my interest in wanting to pursue an artistic creative career. Knowing that I could create a garment that was expressive plus unique to my own thoughts and visions..Solidified my decision to pursue art and fashion.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What’s different about my brand is its a customizable apparel brand. Meaning you can chose whatever color garment as well as being able to change the color of the print.

I’m proud of the fact that I create the designs as well as the actual printing of the garments. I literally touch every customers product and it excites me to see every design and item in the hands of my customers.

Staying consistent is what got me to where I am today but it wasn’t easy due to life’s many challenges and my random bouts of depression and self doubts. It took a lot of self help books and conversations with my family and friends to help me through those times of being down.

I have learned a few things along the way for example, nothing is going to be exactly how you want it to be. You should accept it for what it is and make the best out of the situation. Everyone isn’t going to like the things you create but everything isn’t for everyone and you shouldn’t want it to be. Most importantly I learned that as long as I love things I create it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks about it. Just keep going until they love it as much as I do

I want the world to know that my brand is for everyone. That’s why it’s customizable. I want everyone to be able to express themselves thru my brand.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It’s a few people that deserve some credit for inspiring me and pushing me to be great every day. They would be my Mom, my best friends Chardonnay, Tami and Brandon. They all play a major roll in my life and success.
