JOICO European Color Design Team member, Casey Coleman, proudly presents his award winning collection, DEFIANCE, which explores the dark corners of our minds. This collection is a stand up to a struggle with mental health and fighting against our own minds. It inspires to maintain a powerful stance regardless of what life throws at you. Casey was recently recognized for the collection as the Creative HEAD Most Wanted It List VISIONARY award winner.
For inspiration, he looked to fashion icon Alexander McQueen and performance artist and designer Leigh Bowery. Both are known for their striking and inventive approach to design – something that is visible in the bold shapes and strong color palette that are used in these images. The looks individually express strength, creativity and power and share moments of vulnerability. Taking elements from both McQueen and Bowery, Casey has created an aesthetic that is highly artistic, tasteful and projects Casey’s personality.
