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 from 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 used 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 by it been 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!
Back patches: Have a certain theme, colourway — no idea too big or too small, I’m always up for a challenge.
Made to order jackets: are available to buy from the born to shop page where you can invest in one of my hand-drawn designs but if you have a specific design in mind please contact me as the price may differ, I’m already excited to hear your ideas.
