Designer Denim Dreams

Photographer: Aesthetic Aperture

Model & Designer: Samantha Jean Moore

Jewelry: Savané Silver


Samantha Jean sources a huge variety of denim jackets from her travels around the world. Most are second hand or have been considered “flawed” by the manufactures and are stripped of their original branding. After collecting several jackets, Samantha Jean will wash, repair, and treat the fabric in small batches. Then using the scraps leftover from other projects, her stash of vintage fabrics, broken jewelry and found objects, she crafts each piece as though giving it its own personality. No two designs are ever alike. For more examples of her denim work, visit @mococolex
