Toriru. A street apparel brand clashing with Anime inspirations. Looking to take on the fall of 2019 with new merch you can view below.
I would like to introduce the creator of this clothing brand, Terrence Lindsey.
Why did you decide to choose fashion designing as a career?
I chose fashion designing as a career as a way of telling my story by expressing my inner deeper thoughts.
The designs you created are no doubt good enough, but who and which things were your inspiration while creating such designs?
My brand is deeply influenced by Japanese anime culture. I was introduced to anime The way the shows portrayed stories about supernatural power was very beautiful to watch. While brainstorming about the designs of my brand I wanted to ensure they consisted of distinctive imagery yet relatable.
Fashion is unlimited expression consisting of an ideal storytelling mechanism.
How do you stay up to date regarding fashion?
I stay up to date by following different brands on all social media platforms.
How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t like to look like everyone else. The point isn’t to stand out but more so to be myself. Whether I dress up or dress down I’m always going to incorporate my own vision into the clothing I wear.
How would you relate past and present fashion trends?
Fashion trends from the past are just being revamped in the present. For example Fannypack’s made a huge comeback last year. You saw fanny packs with fur and 3M, both materials which were not incorporated into the past designs.
Explain a typical day in the world of TORIRU?
A typical day consist of fast pace and lots of moving a round.
What’s next for TORIRU?
All I have to say is stay tune.
