No Rhyme? No Reason! (In other words don't think...just DO!)

You know it's pretty funny...this thing called life...

Before I started Adhesif Clothing I used to do a lot of creative writing. In fact I have a dozen or more books of unpublished handwritten poetry I did in what feels like another lifetime ago.

Actually I always wanted to publish those books and went as far as creating my own hand drawn business card with "Poet" as my title...pretty badass I thought. 
I even staged my very own poetry reading (my only poetry reading) at The Flower Factory on Main Street in Vancouver like over a decade ago now...

I spent years "exploring my creative side"...painting, drawing, writing, making dioramas. Until finally experimenting with textiles and fashion just "stuck"...thus the name Adhesif :-) No pun intended!

Ok...let's fast forward to present time...before I start my nostalgic ramblings about the road less travelled and how I got from small humble beginnings to the ominous established upcycled brand Adhesif Clothing has become today (cough)

(p.s: don't grow up it's trap!)

So...funny enough...I did end up becoming a published writer!
But it didn't happen the way I tried going about as a poet or creative writer, it happened while taking a completely different creative route as a fashion designer and stylist!

Luckily enough, I've not only had the great opportunity to have worked with some really spectacular creative teams both in Canada & Europe 
I've also had the last four of Adhesif Clothing's seasonal collections published in the US publication Belle Armoire as well as one other creative photoshoot.

All  wardrobe designs, creative direction/styling as well as the articles were written by designer Melissa Ferreira of Adhesif Clothing.
