About jacket Jon used today!

I will 👏🏻never 👏🏻get tired of seeing my work in fans’ photos, and playing a little part in their memory of seeing their favorite artist. At the top of this year I said I wanted to do more custom. There’s some serious power in the words you speak- it set forth an inbox full of requests. Fast forward through a full year of custom pieces to Hurricane Michael... Right as I was driving into the dead zone (no cell service), @thepaytonproject calls me and calmly says, “@bonjovi wants a jacket and we’re designing it for him.” She then derails the convo talking about a 66’ mustang & I’m so confused but I’m listening. Turns out she wasn’t derailing, Payton had already TAKEN THE MATERIAL from her dad’s 66’ mustang to use on the heart on this jacket. I get back to Nashville a week later ready to roll into red carpet week, and ended up co-designing a jacket for Jon Bon Jovi as one of my last custom pieces for the year.⠀
I made wings out of white suede and the dagger out of a cotton-backed silk, which I also snuck into the inside of the jacket as a liner. I kept telling her “five more minutes!” (It was way longer) because I wanted to add white leather to the cuffs but she knew we needed to get it shipped in time to debut in Japan. This is the end result- debuted on-stage in Tokyo for 55,000 people.⠀
Thankful to create pieces that have stories with you, Payton 😘#paytonxkrystal⠀
