What is your name and what do you do? How long have you been a designer?
Jerry Phillips. I am a footwear and clothing designer. I have been a designer since 1980.
How did you get started in creating your own collection?
I started my own collection when I realized that African American designers were not being hired by major labels. In the 80’s they were not being hired by the major design houses, only in some major stores on the retail floors as clerks, stockers, etc.
Where do you get your inspiration for your designs from?
My designs were inspired from different era’s in our history, where timeless classic styles were a major part of dress and in the for front. For example some of our Jazz artists like Duke Ellington.
What kind of products are in your collection?
My collection consists of footwear, accessories, and business wear.
Have you always wanted to create products for both Men and Women?
I was trained initially as a menswear designer, but later added women’s footwear due to customer’s requests.
What is the price range of your items?
Price ranges on footwear, $375 to $1800 or higher depending on the styles and skins selected. Also whether it was a shoe or boot. Custom handmade suits ranged from 2500 to 3000. Accessories were various prices.
What is the best method to take care of leather shoes like yours?
With each customer’s shoe purchase, we go over how to care for them. Custom leather or exotic shoes should be entirely water proofed before wearing. The shoes should be kept oiled, usually before each wear. If they get scratched or scuffed, the shoes should be buffed and polished. This will keep the shoes looking their best and last a long time.
