More about Roy Blake Smith:

Roy Blake Smith is a local Fashion Designer with an affinity for the creative arts. Hailing from Athens, Ga., Blake studied at SCAD: The University for Creative Careers where he cultivated his craft, won multiple design scholarships, and received his bachelor’s in Fashion Design. The day after graduation, Blake moved to NYC to begin an internship with Kohl’s on the Lauren Conrad brand. Throughout the next 5 years, he worked his way up to a management position and had the opportunity to drive sales and create unique product for multiple brands such as Princess Vera Wang, Candie’s, and Dana Buchman. During his time at Kohl’s, Blake was selected to be one of 15 designers to compete on Lifetime’s Project Runway: Under the Gunn where he ranked top 5 and met many amazing designers/industry influencers along the way. After a brief designer role for southern corporation Belk, Blake decide to return to Athens to focus his creative energy on starting his own brand - and to use his retail knowledge to help others find their voice in the fashion industry. Artist Statement: For me, fashion design is my art. Fabric is my choice of medium and the human form is my canvas. I believe that clothing can transform the person who is wearing it - it can make you feel stronger, confident, beautiful. It can provide a form of escape from reality - or it can bring out the true “you”. It is my sole purpose as an artist of design to create endless, wearable possibilities for my customer - my canvas.
