Custom Jacket Jacket for B.o.B designed by Ayanna James

While working with Bobby Ray, he asked me to design a jacket based off of the movie Shaolin, starring Jackie Chan. I partnered with an amazing tailor and embroider here in Los Angeles and this was the end product.

We also reconstructed a fitted had and Jeremy Scott boots to match. Before this, I never had never really designed anything myself. So this was definitely a challenge. Bob was so happy with this project. It was definitely fun to do.
