Lee please tell us your talent/work rate per hour?
I'm a Photographer/Designer
I am Lee Stone founder of E.V.A. LLC. That brings a unique experience to this industry. I have experienced as a fashion and cinema photographer, graphic designer, and fashion art designer. My strength I will say is to design not only exclusive haute fashion for the wealthy but to produce similar affordable quality for mainstream branding fashion. With my bold, lively, and colorful personality, I will have evolving fashion lines that will satisfy male and female consumer bases from ages sixteen to thirty.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Lee. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
What is unique about me? That's a tough question to answer, but I would say that I am a nerd who loves watching anime and Miyazaki films. I love watching those films and anime to create something awesome through my designs or my photography work!
Lee, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Fashion Label?
The passions and aspirations I have for myself are to design better than yesterday. Always create something new and never look back.
I started my fashion line right after the high school, which is E.V.A today. It starts out of frustration for the fashion world for not being Innovative enough and for the everyday consumer. That's when it hit me; I can do better and bring Innovation and creativity that the world has only seen in anime.
Who is your inspiration in life Lee? How do you keep inspired?
The inspiration in my life is my dreams, and that's keeping me going I can wake up draw my dream into Adobe Photoshop or sew it or created in a film or a photo shoot. To me, beyond incredible!
We all make mistakes Lee; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Fashion Label; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
In the beginning, I never listen to business advice, and it hurt me. I wish could turn back time and told my younger self to listen, because you don't know it all.
Lee, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Fashion Label, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
That's not the case for us. I am thankful that I have a wonderful team that make sure we can deliver excellent service to all of our clients and customers no matter size or work load.
Please tell us Lee, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Fashion Label?
To tell you the truth, I am strategic as writing a Miyazaki film. Do what you want, but have a sense of realism to yourself and everything will work out.
Lee, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I never persuaded anybody to see my way of thinking at work. It is not my style. I love hearing what other people have to offer. If I persuaded someone at work or all my team I just get my same voice and idea back at me. It is not right at least for me.
Lee, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Fashion Label. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
When I created the character hood. It took two years of research and development. For a guy who has no formal fashion designer school training. It was one of the best moments of my life.
Lee, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
The exciting time of creating something with my work will be the character hoodies. The difficult part of it is two years of trial and error of getting it right.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Fashion Label?
To always follow your dream and never give up even if you have to go through trial and error.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Of course, I want a collab with designers, artists, etc... To put it simply, I want to collaborate with everyone in the art and Fashion World
Now for the best part Lee! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
