With an eclectic background—ranging from designer level fashion buying, to wholesale visual management—Justin’s understanding of multiple consumer markets is a key component in his creative process. He also spent a few years abroad in Milan, Italy, which provided a deep insight on European business practices and has enabled him to collaborate very efficiently. The culmination of his professional approach to projects, and his experience with quick changing trends across several markets, has given Justin a tool box full of creative power.
