This week we wanted to highlight a charismatic Memphis Designer, Antonio Jones. He is the founder of a men's & women's custom athletic apparel clothing line. Jones didn't initially set out to be a designer, he actually wanted be an art teacher. Little did he know that design was his true calling. Antonio is a testament that despite others doubts, and disbeliefs if you keep pressing forward you will reach great heights. Jones has future plans to open a store front for his clothing line "Rough Feathers!"
Can you tell us a little bit about the moment you realized you were an artist? The moment I realized I was an artist was, when I was in the 10th grade and everybody was asking me to draw their drivers ed poster. I knew I would be doing something in the art field but I didn't know actually what exactly I'd be doing.
How did you learn your necessary skills?
