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 the couple were into I invited them to come to my studio so we could chat more about their wedding, where it was happening and did they have a theme they wanted to go with.
They defiantly wanted something that represented them both and also wanted to bring a sentimental vibe 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 as they do on the biker patches so it stood out nice and bold. I also had to stick some dice in there because I believe the couple were rolling into good times!
With all my designs I start by sketching a hard copy out which then gets transferred to my iPad to redraw it through procreate, this means I can use colour to get more of a feel see how it looks. It was also easier to send to my clients as they can see what it will look like too and not just black and white.
I can also 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.
When working with Johnny’s size the pattern had to be drafted differently but luckily I had my handy men’s pattern book to help me along the way. It was worth it, in the end, to see how it turned out.
I also took Jo’s measurements to make sure the jacket was perfect rocking for her too.
For Jo went for a soft rose pink jacket and kept the design colours complementing the colour. I used my leopard print lining to fully line the jacket as the pink colours really popped with the jacket and the back design.
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 both 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.
