Handmade leather jackets – Kiss Leather Jacket – I was made for lovin’ you

Recently I had the pleasure of making this fun Kiss leather jacket for Jess a mega fan wanting to wear it for her wedding — super cool.

All my leather jackets are made form real leather and you can read more about why I make real leather jackets by hand here 

I absolutely love the requests I get through for designs on the back but this one was a fun challenge to make, I’m not gonna lie when the bride contacted me it had me a bit nervous.

Just the font in itself was a bit tricky to get right but with perseverance I got there in the end.

With Jess being a huge Kiss fan and her first dance being to this song we decided to go for the lyrics I was made for lovin you on the back in the style of font they use.

I used a black glitter fabric for the lettering.

We also added a green mermaid glitter star behind it to compliment the glam side and the star face design one of the members has.

Here is the Kiss leather mid – design

For the leather jacket itself we uses a silver leather in a short waisted style so it sat perfectly with her dress and had an emerald green lining to match the star colours on the back.

I was a bit worried that the glitter would all merge together and you wouldn’t be able to read what it says but it worked out really well in the end.

The finished look of the Kiss leather jacket

Jess was so happy with the whole design of her jacket and was blown away with it being exactly how she wanted it to be. She even sent me a film of her opening her jacket when she received it through the post.

If you’re looking for that edgy style on your wedding day or even just for every day, then my handcrafted personalised leather jackets are just for you. Just like Jess and her Kiss leather jacket!

Matching Personlised Leather Jackets : Las Vegas wedding

Matching Personlised Leather Jackets : Las Vegas wedding

Jo And Jonny celebrated their Las Vegas wedding earlier on in the year.

I had the honour of making them both their very own personalised leather jackets. 

It’s been one of my favourite designs to create so far and was a challenge to say the least! 

To get a more of a vibe of what they were into I invited them to come to my studio so we could chat more about their wedding and where I was happening and I they had a theme they wants to go with. 

They defiantly wanted something that represented them both and also wanted to bring that they were getting married in Vegas, I mean who doesn’t. 

They both have a passion for reptiles and even have them as pets themselves so they chose to have a snake incorporated around a heart. This was a tricky one to draw but I got there in the end.

To incorporate the Las Vegas theme I thought it would be cool to do the writing like they do on the biker patches so it stood out and I had to stick some dice in there because I believe the couple were rolling into good times! 

The design

With all my designs I start by sketching a hard copy out then I transfer it to my iPad to re draw it through procreate so I can use colour to get more of feel to see how it looks, its also easier to send to my clients as they can see what it will look like too and not just black and white. 

I keep my client updated as I’m drawing it to make sure it exactly as they want it.

This was the first time I had ventured into making a man’s leather jacket so that was an added extra challenge on top. The pattern all had to be drafted differently to a man’s size but with he making I just took the same principle as what I use for the ladies jackets. 

I took both of their measurements to make sure the jackets were of a perfect fit for them. 

For Jo went for a soft rose pink jacket and kept the design colours complementing the colour. I used my leopard print lining to line the jacket as the pink colours really went with jacket.

With Johnny’s we went for a classic black and used similar colours for the design but used a red for the heart instead of pink, It was fully lined in a classic red lining too. 

I love how the black and white lettering just pops out of the jacket.

I was so excited when I saw the pictures of them wearing it in Las Vegas, it just looks so blummin cool and badass. 

They took to the streets of vegas at night with jackets in tow.
