This Month’s Artist of the Month, Deon Hiralal is a dear friend of mine and a talented designer! He’s the hardest working man I know!
Who? Deon Hiralal
Where? Jersey City, NJ
Why are you Artist of the month? I am artist of the Month because the wonderful team of Spikes and Sequins recognizes my unique talent and passion for design. I am very ecstatic and obliged to be featured on this blog.
What inspires you? My mom was a seamstress and local designer in my neighborhood back in Guyana, she has always been my inspiration because she have such passion and dedication in everything she does. I let my design reflect femininity, strength and grace that is my mom.
Is there anything else that you would like to create/accomplish that you haven’t already? I love to dabble in everything artistic; I have recently started to do my own photography for my collection. I think I can better capture the essence of my design if I was behind the camera. In terms of fashion design, I would love to create a dramatic collection that parallels Alexander McQueen collections. I have always admire his style and bold designs
Do have any advice? A man is not a failure until he gives up, so just live life to the fullest and always strive for success.
