Oliver Michael Fitzpatrick // Ndeed Regime
SELF-DESCRIBED – Eclectic
SIGNATURE PRODUCT – Bowties & custom bespoke suits
INSPIRATION – “The inspiration behind Ndeed Regime derives from many different aspects of life. I get inspiration from music, paintings, sculptures, movies, walking outside, architecture, etc. I try to grasp inspiration from anything around me. Seeing certain colors and patterns can stimulate an idea for a great custom piece. With my business I inspire to motivate and spark the mind of every person with a creative idea to go for it. Ndeed Regime aims to be a true inspiration that you can do anything that you put your mind to if you are willing to put in the work and your heart.”
Shonda Ali-Shamaa // Love ROCS
SELF-DESCRIBED – powerful
SIGNATURE PRODUCT – gowns
INSPIRATION – “Making women feel beautiful. At 5’9, finding clothes long enough has always been a challenge and made me self-conscious. I want to show the many faces/sizes of beauty.”
