GRAFF TIES COLLECTION
SUMMER 2010 COLLECTION
D.G. WINTER COLLECTION
Fashion design fell into Thomas' life unexpectedly. In 2009, after the head of his college photography department asked him to leave the program, Graff realized he had nothing to lose and decided to 'forget the rules' and make art out of everything. He shifted his interests from photography and art education to fashion and painting. In the span of 6 months, Thomas picked up a sewing machine and hand crafted an entire summer collection (the 'Summer 2010' collection). He utilized his design skills to draw out the collection, the sewing skills his mother showed him when he was young to craft the collection, and his photography skills to photograph the 'look book.' This collection found its way into 4 fashion shows, 3 art exhibitions and 1 retail store in California.
Thomas later developed his Fashograffy Collection, Graff Ties Collection, and his D.G. Winter Collection. His work has been featured in the G.O.O.D.S. Magazine, Haute Magazine, Above the Fray Magazine, and in various fashion shows.
