It has been Rob's dream to design clothing. He never thought he would be able to learn to sew or design his own clothing collection. As he progressed through designing accessories and jewelry, Rob wanted to start sewing clothing. He saw a vision in his mind and had to figure out how to get it out.
This collection started with a series of design concepts in Rob's mind. He had to make them a reality. This collection is an expression of all the design concepts in his mind. It is everything that Rob has "envisioned".
Rob took a series of sewing classes and learned the basic techniques of sewing. He bought a sewing machine and watched YouTube videos to learn sewing basics. This gave him the confidence to get professional training by attending classes. As Rob's skills developed, the designs he had in his head were beginning to become reality. Rob was drawn to the materials he used in his accessories as well as unique fabrics with texture and high quality. He was really into hand-detailing with embellishments and painting on fabrics.
Saturday, June 16, 2018 was a pivotal moment in the Rob Bacon brand.
This date marks the first photo shoot for the Rob Bacon Clothing Collection.
The photo shoot included seven looks designed and sewn by Rob along with his bags and fashion jewelry.
The collection includes lots of textures and colors, a mixture of prints, and hand-painted leather.
Rob describes his first collection as "edgy high-fashion with a hint of the avant garde".
The photo shoot was a contrast of feminine looks in an industrial environment.
Special thanks to everyone who partnered with Rob in his first clothing collection photo shoot.
