COLE PILLITU

I am a Seattle-based, technically trained, creative designer and multi-media artist with a background in visual arts, costuming and performance. I graduated from the technical Apparel Design & Development program at Seattle Central in 2019. Current events and ideas of the future drive my concepts and designs. I strongly believe in inclusive sizing, upcycling, taking care of people, and of our planet, and am actively seeking artistic collaborators. Constantly working towards expanding my creative skills. My end goal is to own and operate my own business or co-op, and to continue pursuing my love for teaching via non-profit work.

 

My first collection, Second Home, is driven by three concepts of a second home: the workplace; Mars colonization; and upcycled fabrics. These concepts can be seen in the silhouettes, original prints, and reused fabrics in the line. The fabrics I reclaimed for these looks include hand-bleached denim jeans, bedsheets, and the backside of a giant advertising billboard previously seen on a highway. I orchestrated a concept-driven photoshoot where I re-imagined a future we are headed towards. My models act as the heroes and leaders of this future, building a new world.

I love nothing more than working with people on creative projects. If you would like to collaborate please contact me using the form below!
