Colby J Melvin  WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA
Internet personality, underwear model, human rights activist, entertainer, and professional goofball Colby Melvin is embarking on a journey into the fashion world.





The Goal
To launch a mens/gender neutral street wear line that inspires confidence, happiness, and good-will toward all around you. Finding your own inner happiness through self-acceptance is what my clothes are all about. You've already got the confidence and power within, my clothes are just here to accessorize your awesomeness.



About the Clothes
My clothes are meant to empower anyone who wears them. I am an unapologetic nerd at heart and like to think of my clothes as giving people super powers. The clothes will look great on you, but more importantly they will make you feel great about yourself. Items I make include shirts, hoodies, tank tops, shorts, running pants, and (my favorite) onesies. I like fun textures, nontraditional materials, prints, and bright colors. My biggest inspirations are the 90's, haute bohème, Peter Pan, and my friends. Similar brands include: Topman, Slick it Up, and Zara.




Why I Need You
Making clothes is expensive! Currently I am designing, buying all textiles, sewing each item, marketing, sales, packaging, and distribution all by myself. It's a lot to handle especially when the overhead is all out of pocket. In order to bring my designs to you at an affordable rate, I need some help to streamline the process. I am looking to hire 1-2 people to help with fabrication and distribution. Fabric isn't cheap either. In order for me to put items up for sale, I have to front the money for large amount of fabric. You want options and I want to give them to you! Several stores have made inquiries about making bulk orders, but in order to do that, I need to be able to reduce production time. That's great news for you because if I can increase the number of units, I can reduce the price per item! That means I can offer my clothing to you at a much more affordable rate!

Hey Colby, I know you will achieve your goal but making some smaller rewards may entice more people who may not be able to afford $100 plus. You have many fans that would love to help you but you need to make it easier for them to help. X
