*NEW* Feature Friday - Fox + Stag 3rd of October



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Fox + Stag

Happy Friday to you all! I hope all has been well with you as we now transition into Autumn, seems the summer days have just flown by. I'm excited to introduce this company I have come across, and feel as a fashionista their pieces are different from the rest, with staple pieces that will turn heads for sure! Fox and Stag was born from the salt marshes of Essex, Massachusetts and the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles. Their fashion displays American street couture that's affordable style that's not afraid to get dirty!
I'm honored to have interviewed the very talented Johnathan Woodman who formed Fox and stag and is also the Fashion designer. I hope you enjoy this interesting and informative interview as much as I did.

Interview with Johnathan Woodman l Owner of Fox + Stag and Fashion Designer

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career? 
My inspiration for designing Fox + Stag fashion aesthetics definitely all goes back to my roots of the East Coast. I was raised on the East Coast, but spread my wings on the West Coast. After moving back about a year ago, my designs have been inspired by the East Coast tradition, structure and good ol yankee spirit. However, it's hard to leave behind a bit of the West Coast flare so that has been thrown into my designs as well. 

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
As a Fashion Designer & Tailor, I definitely agree with the saying “If you love your job, you never work a day in your life.” Therefore, I would have to say that what I enjoy most about my job is being able to create and transform my vision into a reality. I design and build everything from the ground up. From sourcing materials to making patterns, and building prototypes, I get to have my hands on everything which is rewarding within itself.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
To date, my 'proudest' moment would be 9 years ago when I became a father to my son. Starting Fox + Stag has been great, but not much is going to top having a son....But I am getting married in 2 days so that might come close! 

4) Where do you see yourself in the future? 
In the future I see Fox + Stag being a new staple for quality made products that allows me to live on a ranch with my wife and son. 

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
My biggest piece of advice for someone who is starting out on a new venture as a Fashion Designer/Tailor would definitely be to make sure that you absolutely love the fashion industry and every step of the design and production process. If you have passion for your work, then the projects and obstacles that come your way will never be a burden to get completed but more as something to look forward to.

6) Which would you say is your favorite item from your shop at the moment?
My favorite item in my shop currently is the Dr. Jones bag. It is stylish and classy, while at the same time sturdy, durable and versatile. The Dr. Jones bag is more than just a fashion accessory, it has the functionality to do more than just look good. Whether you use it to load up tools for a weekend of camping or a trusty spot for your Macbook Pro during the week, it always comes in handy!
However, my favorite item is subject to change because I will be launching a new Fox + Stag Iphone 6 case along with some new winter bags which I am so excited about! Stay tuned by following us on Twitter and Facebook!

Wishing you all an amazing weekend, if you get some free time check out Fox + Stag on their platforms more details of their items can be found on Twitter which is regularly updated.
Also a massive thank you to Johnathan and his team for allowing myself and my readers to get a closer in-look to the company and items and I wish you all the very best with your business!
