Denim Designer, GAP – Women’s, 1969
Meet our INSIDER CLICKS feature: an LA-based denim innovator!
“My name is Marlow Fox, and I grew up in Venice Beach, California. I was born into fashion; my mom is a retail store owner (M. Fredric) and my dad is a swimwear manufacturer. I have always loved to dress myself, and I use art as a way to calm my senses. When I was younger, my favorite thing to do was to draw on butcher paper that my mom would roll out across the floor. I would just sit on the floor and color for hours. I love designing, and I have worked with other companies (big and small) such as Guess, Inc. and Collina Strada.” – Marlow Fox
FACT: I love, love, love denim!
FACT: If I could live in a house completely made of denim, I would.
INSIDER Q & A.
W2C: What is your favorite aspect about designing for GAP?
MF: I get to work with Denim every single day.
W2C: Where do you get your design inspiration from?
MF: Keeping an open mind and absorbing every experience is the best source of inspiration. Music, art and the people I surround myself with are my second source of inspiration.
W2C: Do you have a favorite pair of jeans you have designed for GAP?
MF: I love a jean that is worn in and loved for a long time. I made a jean that simulates this effect by patching up worn in holes and adding hand stitching.
W2C: What styles and/or colors are among GAP’s best sellers?
MF: All authentic indigo washes have been doing really well for us. As for colored denim and prints, softer more neutral colors and classic prints are our jam.
W2C: What is the first item of clothing you designed?
MF: My mom used to call me “Scissors” because when I was younger (and still to this day) I would take scissors and a sewing machine to any silhouette to make it my own. The first item I remember designing was a denim bag I made out of my dads old Levi’s. I filled the exterior will collected pins, and I never left home without it.
