I always wanted to design nice clothing: stylish; cool looking; desirable. so I sat down using Cinema 4D and (then later Blender) to design clothing that would be worthy of any catwalk in Paris, Milan or London.
After the 14th version I realized that I just wasn’t achieving that authentic look using either of the above applications.. not without a hell of a lot of tweaking which equated to time I didn’t have.

sometimes Blender and other times Cinema 4D.
