How is Canvas Clothing affiliated with Giraffe Studios? 

CANVAS by GIRAFFE is a fine art concept clothing line produced by Giraffe Studios in Los Angeles, CA. 

When did you launch Canvas Clothing and is there any backstory or inspiration for this line you could share with our readers? 

CANVAS by GIRAFFE was launched in 2015. Motivated by our own desire for smart-looking and durable studio clothing, CANVAS takes inspiration from how super cool Picasso looked working in his studio and from our very own set of contemporary artist friends. CANVAS re-works traditional smock and work-wear clothes for the ease of travel from the studio to the streets.  

For our premiere collection, we invited artist Heidi G. to take residency at  Giraffe Studios to create art and test drive the garments for functionality and style. The CANVAS lookbook, accompanied by a time-lapse video, is made up of a series of 120 mm film stills taken over the period of Heidi’s stay at Giraffe Studios. 
 

Do you do all of the clothing designing / making, studio work, etc? 

Yes, we both do all the designing and studio work, but we also work extremely closely with our mom, the third giraffe, Monica Adriana. It's a family affair! She is a brilliant designer, artist, and pattern maker and the one who engineers and brings our designs to life. We couldn't do it without her!
