a child of the 70's, a teen in the 80's,

 a raver in the 90's,..............

fast forward to the 2020's; fashion designer for the pAST 15 years,

musician, stylist, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, envrionmental & human rights activist.

TRANSFIXED BY THE JUXTAPOSITION OF BRITISH PUNK AND THE TRASHY GLAMOUR OF AMERICAN COP SHOWS AS A CHILD. 

MOVING ON TO THE DIY ETHICS OF THE 80S, the NEW ROMANTIC MOVEMENT AND HIGH GLOSS SOAP OPERAS IN his TEENS.

IT WAS ALWAYS GOING TO BE MUSIC OR FASHION.....

......both? 

DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL AND SECURED his FIRST RECORD DEAL AT 19 - MAKING his OWN CLOTHES AND LATCHING ON TO THE 2ND SUMMER OF LOVE, UNDERGROUND CLUBS AND ARTHOUSES.

NIGHTLIFE AND ALL THE FREAKS THAT FREQUENTED IT WAs HOME. 

THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED; 

FROM THE LATE 90S FASHION AND MUSIC BECAME MORE AND MORE GENERIC AND BLAND. 

CORPORATE IDENTITY WAS HAILED AS 'SUCCESS' WITH THE LAZY GREED OF CONSUMERS RIPPING HOLES IN THE PLANET'S FINITE RESOURCES.

INDIVIDUALITY BECAME CIRCUMSPECT AND A WALK THROUGH ANY CITY NOW IS LIKE WATCHING A POPULATION OF DYSTOPIAN CLONES.  

BURBO SAYS 'NO'.

SELF TAUGHT AND SELF EDUCATED IN GARMENT CONSTRUCTION, UPCYCLING, AND STYLING.

DESIGNING FOR A GROWING ARMY OF BURBO DEVOTEES AND STYLING FOR PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES WHO WANT A UNIQUE TAKE ON THIER OWN INDIVIDUALITY.   

bURBO SAYS....

"i dont consider myself a fashion designer - I'm a creative who works in the medium of fabric.

i DESPISE CONFORMITY AND WILL ALWAYS SEARCH OUT THE DIFFERENT, THE UNUSUAL, THE UNCONVENTIONAL."

MY WORDS ARE 'WHY? WHERE? HOW?'

 

"bE YOURSELF;

EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN."

- oscar Wilde
