I actually sold most [...]

1980 S 3

  Perhaps you’ll smile at this vintage Leather Waves photo from 1980. It reminds me of the Village People and Queen. Was a rocking time in music and fashion, Disco and all that. Made this leather “bronze” shoulder padded jacket and leather jeans, found this “hunky” guy to model it, and it did sell well!

1980 RC White Leather

  Now this is the way to wear white leather in my humble opinion. Or, at least, the way we wore it in 1980. R.C. was my top male model model/muse (can a boy be a muse?), anyway I modeled all my male Leather Waves on him in those days. I mean….why wait for Memorial [...]

  Colorblock from the 1980′s…black and white is always so stunning in fashion, we see designers using it over and over, every few years. It’s a modern concept.
