Name: Dereck Francois
Occupation: Creative Director at Hand Crafted Statements
Do you customize all of your clothing? Most of it.
Any reason why? I just want to express myself, that's all.
Where can we find Hand Crafted Statements? HandCraftedStatments.com.

I am planning on launching my line sometime in February or March. There

are going to be blazers, jackets, hats, shoes, accessories.
Who inspires your fashion? Wow. The world. Just life, pretty much. Every time I step outside, I get new ideas.
Any designers that you are keeping your eye on? I've always liked Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen. I look at anyone that is unconventional, that steps out of the box.
