M.Class' Hat & Jacket

My Signature Hat

Creating this hat was pretty challenging and expensive. Challenging because I had to first figure out the style and positioning of my stage name on the hat. Expensive because of the Swarovski crystals itself and the labour it  took to place each crystal individually by hand.   

After completing the 1st album "Visions" I decided I needed something different for the next upcoming of singles. I was about to schedule a photoshoot when an idea of placing my logo on the back of my jacket came to mind. So I put the photoshoot on hold and decided to get it done.

So here is the logo embroidered along with my initials but before I press on further, let me tell you something. If you can envision something and you believe in it, you can actually make it a reality by taking the first step. 

 

This idea was exactly what I had in mind and it turned out great. The next step was placing the Swarovski crystals which was a whole lot of fun.

 

That's me being sarcastic by the way, it took me 5 hours to place each individual crystal on the jacket . Let the bedazalling begin. 

 
My Signature Jacket

As you can see I had to come up with a game plan as to what I wanted, the hat was my very first vision and the Jacket my second. I wanted something unique, something that signified my personality as a singer, songwriter and producer.

THIS IS HOW I CREATED 

THE JACKET.

So the reason I had it embroidered was so that it would be easier for me to place the crystals with an outline, rather than doing it free hand; which would have turned out to be a disaster lol ;).

I started by placing the jacket on an ironing board, to pretty much be comfortable when placing EACH INDIVIDUAL crystals onto the embroidered logo. Trust me it wasn't fun lol :D.
