Myles has always had a love for style, art and creating and says there wasn’t a time when fashion wasn’t a part of his life. “I’ve always wanted to project something through my personal style. I’ve always had specific looks in my head that I try to accomplish through my style.” There is no denying Myles is a full-on fashion plate who serves up serious style inspiration every time he steps out into the city! The amount of love Myles has for creativity was clear in this recent collection which took him two years to complete!
What was the inspiration behind the collection? “I always like to design with the idea of Gods and Goddesses in mind, I love creating pieces that are very individual and very self expressive to the person wearing each piece.” Each piece in the collection has a very powerful and strong vibe whether due to crazy studs or dramatic dark colours, this collection is for risk-takers and fearless fashionistas! “This season I used the wings of the Elytra Beetle in my collection.” continued Myles “I really wanted to play off of the natural shapes of the beetles when hand embroidering them onto leather neck pieces and jump ringing them onto chain.” How perfect?

F&B Inc: What influences your clothing and accessories?
Myles Sexton: This season all the clothing was done by Luca Galardo designer of Diodati and each look was paired with my jewelry.
