About B.Unique Jackets:
One-of -a kind, upcycled jackets that are re-imagined
by Re-designer/Artist B. Unique.
Each jacket is
a custom "RockStar" or "Country Star" inspired
magical statement piece.
All jackets are upcycled and given a new life with various techniques in art.
Including but not limited to:
Painting, branding, embroidery,
foiling, sewing, studding, dyeing,
photography, rhinestones (claw, not glue),
feather, faux fur and so much more...
All jackets are musically influenced with many different genres.
Depending on the mood I'm in at that time.
(See the "Gallery" page for examples).
Cutom jackets can be also made from a jacket that you might already have.
(See "CUSTOM") page for more information.
Why I believe my jackets are Magical,
Like most, I had the most paralyzing stage fright growing up, Never got much attention.
But secretly wanted to perform in front of a sea of people at Madison Square Garden.
I just said F' it! The only thing in life I ever wanted to be was a rockstar.
That was NEVER going to happen!
But I could feel like a Rockstar.
So I created a jacket to wear. I wore it to a rock concert. People were coming up and complimenting me on it. Some wanting to take a picture with me or even want to wear it.
This jacket changed my life.
My new favorite jacket would be my "Magical Jacket."
But life happens, and you have no backstage parties to go to anymore or raves you know about...
So you chill and do your homework,,, Thats what you do.
At the age of 42 years old, I began college at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Ca. I became so focused and determined to go for my dreams. I wanted to make jackets for Rockstars and Country Stars.
I interned for one of the most powerful designers in the world, Candice Cuoco.
She was only 27 at the time. I've never met someone so focused on what she wanted.
Her talent was inspirational, and I absorbed her drive and creativity like a sponge. She has done exactly what she said she wanted to do.
Grateful. Much Respect.
So, long story short. I started re-designing jackets and wearing them to concerts, local shows, bars, Symphony's, pop-ups, parties, talking to anyone that liked them while I was traveling all over America and Abroud. Wherever I could...
Now I re-design and make custom jackets for all different types of people. Musicians are my absolute favorite! But my jackets are worn by anyone who wants to wear something one-of-a-kind to the Grammys, or just to a party or event.
I love my clients!
People tell me, "They get so much attention when they wear their jacket".
They're excited and full of confidence, especially on stage if they're a musician.
I love that most...
I believe you should never underestimate the power of a cool jacket.
I have a "Magic Jacket".
Now let me make one for you,
