Description
A collection of 15 poems and short essays, process work, and family photographs further explore Shepperd's Spring/Summer 2020 collection of the same name. Through the text, he explores his identity within the Black community, his style's correlation through his paternal lineage, and the joys of citrus and colors. Filled with family photos and images of process work, you can begin to see the proverbial thread that ties everything together.
About the author
Gibron Whitney Shepperd, a 2019 CFDA Future Fashion Graduate, was born in a multicultural/multi-ethnic home in Southern California. Spending much of his youth with his family in the nature of Northern California, these exposures have influenced his perspectives on design. Shepperd's work has been featured in print publications, films, and creative projects such as Human Shift, Wussy Magazine, and Beyonce's Black Is King. He creates a design world that is sophisticated and sensitive. Through the brand, Shepperd seeks to deliver intrinsically desirable clothing and art objects for men through the use of exceptional materials, textures, tantalizing colors, and provocative shapes and patterns. The philosophy at GIBRON is to push the field of menswear forward; the male form must be subjected to interpretation, objectified, and studied much like its female counterpart has been for centuries. Emphasizing gender neutrality and androgyny and removing the man from a "practical life," exploring color and silhouettes from cultures beyond the Western canon.
