LBD = Little Black Dashiki
Dogs I'm a dude on The Uniform Project, bow wow!
It has been a major exciting and intense month with Sarah's pilot-hood at The U.P. We pulled one last all-nighter to make this LBD- Little Black Dashiki- come to life! Ok its more like a one piece track suit, but I could definitely make it my uniform.
About the Mackswell LBD:
The inspiration was Dashiki meets Little Black Dress. When Sheena (founder of The Uniform Project) asked if I would be the first male to make a guest appearance with The U.P. (I did a nifty lil dance) and immediately starting envisioning something that could be a fitted, formal-esc suit with a secret built in expansion mansion. This thing Pajamas Hood! Serious, this morning on our walk back from the shoot all my bois in Bedstuy were already passing me props. My Dude King Kobra: "Damn Mackswell! You got some *ucked up style!" He wanted to trade me jumpsuits.. Next time.
