Seen and Heard- Stetson Leon


Tell me about yourself?
I GO BY MANY NAMES SOME CALL ME STETSON LEON SOME CALL ME YSL WHERE I COME FROM ,YUNG STET ,BUT ITS DA KID YUNG STETSON LE'ON MA A DESIGNER WHO PROGRESSED AND STARTED DESIGNING FROM THE VISIONS OF EVERY DAY LIFE TO DEFINE THAT WE ALL LIVE LAVISH IN OUR ON PARTICULAR LIFE STYLE

How do you describe your personal style?
I DESCRIBE MY STYLE IN MANY DIFFRENT WAYS BASICALLY ITS BASED OFF EMOTION ON HOW I FEEL IN THE DAY IF I FEEL DOWN AND OUT MY COLORS WILL SHOW IT BUT OTHER THEN THAT IT COMES FROM ORIGINALITY AND THE BEST TOP DESIGNERS SOME KATZ TRY TO IMITATE BUT THEY JUS DONT FIT THE CRITERIA I GUESS ITS JUS THE MOOD THEY GO IN WITH YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT ILL ATTITUDE ON LIKE IM PUTTIN THIS JACKET WIT THIS BOW TIE ON WITH THESE KICKS AND IMA GO OUT TO THE PUBLIC AND SHIT ON EVERY KAT IN THE ROOM U GOTTA HAVE THE ILL EGO .

What inspires you?
INSPIRATION COMES FROM MANY DIFFERENT AREAS SUCH AS STYLIST AN BEHIND THE SCENE DESIGNERS I LOVE WHEN I CAN JUST SPEND A COUPLE OF HOURS ON THE WEB AND JUST SEE MY FAVORITE FLY KATZ OR EVEN CHICK SHITTIN ON DUDES IN A PIC THAT GIVES ME THE MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION TO SAY DAMN I NO IM NOT FAMOUS BUT I CAN STILL DO THAT TO THESE LOCALS.OTHER INSPIRES COME FROM LOVE AND HATE WHICH MEENS PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO SEE ME BECAUSE THEY EXPECT ME TO BE WHO I AM OR ONE OF THE BEST DRESSERS IN THE ROOM AND THE HATE BECAUSE IF AM ONE OF THE BEST DRESSERS IN THE ROOM AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU UP FOR COMPETITION YOUR GONNA HATE ME BUT YOU SHOULDNT HATE ME ITS JUST FABRIC FAMILY !!!


How long have you been sketching and designing?
MENTALY I BEEN SKETCHING FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS NOW BUT IF YOU WANNA TAKE IT TO THE SKETCH BOOK ABOUT 4 YEARS LOL YOU SHOULD SEE MY SKETCH BOOK ITS SO PLAIN JANE YO IT HAS NO VISUAL COLOR IT HAS WATER STAINS AND FOOD STAINS LOL BUT EVERY THING IS STUCK IN THE CRANIUM ITS HARD TRYING TO GET THAT LAVISH SHIT OUT OF MY HEAD TOO I TRY TO EXPRESS MY PRODUCT IN EVERY WAY I POSSBILY COULD I FEEL LIKE IF I BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH WITH THE ENDS IN OUTS OF POOR TO RICH LIVING THAT LAVISH NEEDS TO BE SEEN

Out of all the designers in the world who would you want to work with?
IF I HAD TO WORK WITH A DESIGNER IT WOULD BE SOMEONE IN THE URBAN FIELD WHO I PAY MAD RESPECTS TO I DONT THINK IM PHYSCAILY READY TO WORK WITH KARL OR JERMEY OR EVEN BETSEY PEOPLE LIKE THAT OR FASHION LORDS IN THE MOST NON RELIGOUS CONTENT (MY MAMA WOULD KILL ME IF SHE KNEW I GAVE A HUMAN THAT MUCH RESPECT TO COMPARE THEM TO A GOD OR LORD)SORRY MA LOL BUT YEA I WOULD WORK WITH KATZ LIKE CHRIS JULIAN THAT DUDE IS SO ILL TO ME JUST HIS ETHNIC BACKGROUND SO DIFFRENT BUT KEEPING UP WITH HIS COMPETITORS IF YOU DONT KNOW DUDE DO YA RESEARCH BUT YEA DUDES LIKE JONAS BEVACQUA,MAMIS SUCH AS CARRI MUNDEN EVEN BEHIND THE SCENE STYLE CONSULTANTS LIKE DON C , IBN JASPER I PAY RESPECT TO THE URBAN FASHION KATZ CAUSE I DONT DRESS UP NCE EVERY DAY MY LIFE ISNT AT THE POINT WHERE ITS BIG EEVNTS EVERY NIGHT SO MY SWAGG IS SO URBAN CAUSE I LIVE THAT EVERYDAY .

What do you have in mind when you design.
WHAT I HAVE IN MIND IS OK WHAT IS GOING TO CATCH THE PEOPLES EYE EVERYONE WANTS TO BE DIFFERENT HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DEFINE DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE WHO'S IN YOUR POSITION HOW CAN YOU SHOW YOUR DREAM TO THE WORLD WITH OUT BEING SLEEP YOU KNOW?SOMETIMES I HAVE TO ASK MYSELF OVER AND OVER QUESTIONS AND I HAVE TO FALL BACK ON ALOT OF THINGS BECAUSE I FEEL THAT I CAME UP WITH THE IDEA FIRST BUT SOMEONE WHO'S NOT LOCAL AND IN THE FASHION BUISNESS KNOWN IS GOING TO COME OUT WITH IT I HAVE TO HIDE MY IDEAS FROM THE WORLD SO SOME TIMES I FEEL LIKE A CAGED DESIGNER BECAUSE WHEN YOUR LOCAL YOU CANT DO NOTHING BUT JUS DO YOU AND I FEEL THAT MUSCIAN,ARTIST,STYLIST,DESIGNERS SHOULD RECOGNIZE THIS TO HELP THE NEXT PERSON BECAUSE IT WILL DRIVE YOU INSANE KEEPING THESE DESIGNS IN

Are there any special projects you are currently working on?
YEP ACTUALLY HOUSTON IS HAVING A FASHION SHOW IN 2010 SO LAVISH WILL BE ON THE RUN WAY ITS CRAZY CAUSE THAT LITTLE DIRTY BOOK WITH THE WATER STAINS AND FOOD LEFT BEHINDS WILL COME TO LIFE AND ITS AMAZING CAUSE IM GONNA SHOW EVERYONE WHO ATTENDS THIS EVENT THE LIFESTYLE OF THE LAVISH INDIVIDUAL THE LOVE THE HATE THE RICH THE POOR THE MUSIC THE ART THE BEAUTY OF ONES CREATIVITY


What is the most important lesson you have learned so far?
IV'E LEARNED TO EXPRESS ALL EMOTIOIONS IN EVERYTHING YOU DO HEY IF YOUR MAD AND UPSET SUFFERING FROM LOVE LOST CREATE YOU SOMETHING TO SHOW THAT .YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DONT WANNA BE BOTHERED YOU DONT WANNA SEE ANYONE PUT YOUR FAVORITE SHADES ON TO HIDE BEHIND YOUR EMOTION .YOU FEEL LIKE HEY I WANT TO INVITE MY LOVE ONES TO A SPECAIL EVENT JUMP SO STUPID FRESH THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE SEEN IN THE SPOT YOU WANNA PROVE YOURSELF OF BEING WORHTY EXPRESS AND CREATE LAVISH

Any last words?
I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU LOVE FOR COMING OUT TO THE LAVISH ON CANVAS EDITION KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK MALIBU IM TRULY A BIG FAN MA FRESH FAMILY (F.F)TILL THE CASKET CLOSES MY DUDES NO WHO THEY ARE . .AND THANKS TO ALL WHO LOVES AND ALL WHO HATES LAVISH WILL BE PRESENTED IN MY EVERYDAY LIFESTYLE SO YOU DONT HAVE TO LOOK TO FAR TO BE LAVISH JUST LIVE YOUR EVERYDAY LIFESTYLE

So Michelle Trachtenburg is going to design a jewelry line for Coach,
What is wrong with Coach and Dooney and Burke getting unqualified people to design for them?
Im old, so i remember Michelle from harriet and the spy... Still a good movie lol.
