Customization is taking a product and modifying it so that it fits a single customer’s unique preferences. Customizing your favourite gear gives you the opportunity of becoming your own personal stylist.
Some might say that customization of streetwear is a trend that started in the ’80s by the fashion mogul Dapper Dan. From 1982 until it closed in 1992, Dapper Dan’s Boutique on 125th street in Harlem
churned out gear that has come to define the custom era.
Dan customized gear for New York’s Hip-Hop elite such as RUN DMC, Public Enemy, Fat Boys and many more. Contemporary fashion has lately seen successful collaborations between brands such as SUPREME and Louis Vuitton – it is safe to argument that the visionary fashion mogul Dapper Dan was 30 years ahead of his time.
Whereas Dapper Dan introduced luxury to the streets, Marc Jacob aimed to bring Louis Vuitton into the lives of young people. We see these happenings becouse fashion isn’t just for the elite any more, and FITINK aims to bring the best out of the both worlds together – by customizing and producing high quality #customwear.
The customization trend is rapidly growing in USA, UK and Asia. It is just a matter of time before Europe catches on.
