"Being a Metalhead is a way of dealing with life, accepting yourself as you are and establishing yourself as unique, and that’s what I convey with my work, in every garment."
We understand that your collections are eco conscious, do you have any long-term objectives in terms of sustainability for Juan Pablo Martinez?
Yes. I want to leave a better world for my children and your children. They do not need to suffer for our bad decisions and our irresponsibility. Our parents were not conscious, but we are, so there is no excuse.
In which way your passion for music, especially Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, influences your designs?
It’s in the back of every piece I make. It’s not obvious and at the forefront, but being a Metalhead is a way of dealing with life, accepting yourself as you are and establishing yourself as unique, and that’s what I convey with my work, in every garment.
What is the biggest learning experience you have had?
Dream, keep on dreaming, never stop; turn that dream into a goal, then get someone to buy your dream.
What is the most rewarding part of being a fashion designer for you?
Client’s smiles when they try on my clothes and decide to buy.
What is the best compliment you have ever received?
“I still wear your clothes.” Many times, thankfully.
