Hello there! My name is William and my obsession with the fashion industry started in 10th grade when I first learned screen printing and I began making t-shirts for family and friends. After high school, I embarked on a mission to gain further knowledge about the fashion industry attending Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts(AiYork) and the Art Institute of Philadelphia, graduating in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design. During college, I secured internships at SeanJohn and Undr Crwn Footwear &Apparel, as well as doing some freelance work for Elusion Clothing. I currently run a handmade denim company (www.jackandjeffdenimco.com) doing custom projects or small batches. I have an online class, “ Sewing with Willie J: A Tote Bag Story”, on www.Skillshare.com as well as a sewing blog, www.WilliamSewFresh.weebly.com that I started at the beginning of 2023.
