A New Twist on Military Inspired Fashion by Redhawk Brigade
Written by: Vanessa D'Amico Photos by: Brianna Baggett Full story coming soon in Graffiti Beach's Summer Ezine! Stay Tuned!! Redhawk Brigade is an incredibly unique clothing line from Los Angeles based designer Joshua Lee. Lee’s designs for Redhawk Brigade are inspired by the bravery and strength of the U.S. armed forces. The entire company is based on the concept that “Bravery Never Goes out of Style.” He is dedicated to producing high quality products that represent the concepts of courage and honor. Joshua built the company on his own business savvy and creativity, and he is a natural. Joshua explains, “I did not study to be a designer. I went to school at the University of Kentucky, and graduated with a degree in Finance and International Business.” He moved to Malibu to begin an acting career. He was unimpressed by what was being offered in stores, so he started to make his own custom clothes. “I was buying bags of 2nd hand clothes and cutting them up, distressing, painting, you name it, whatever I could come up with that I thought was cool. Then I started making gear for my friends as well and it steamrolled from there.” He started introducing his clothing to the public in 2007 and hasn’t taken a break since. He is a complete natural in the world of fashion design. This drive has made Redhawk Brigade into the brand it is today. “It took me a while, but I started professionally producing shirts in 2007, and haven't stopped since. “In August 2010 former Air-force Captain and Fighter Pilot Leo Spens joined the Brigade, and we are working hard to take this brand to the next level.” Check out some of our behind the scene shots while we visit Josh and Leo at their LA production facility!
