James R. Lee

His passion for fashion sparked while in college after being introduced to many influential individuals in the local fashion community and has graced the catwalk for retailers and designers alike. Eventually he joined Style Bermuda as an intern and directed editorial shoots making many connections with photographers and makeup artists. In the summer of 2012 he stumbled across Sports Illustrated 2002 Bottle Cap Swimsuit and 2007 guitar-pick bikini. James soon started punching holes and linking together hundreds of bottle caps making unique swimsuits. His first series of 5 bottle cap swimsuits were featured on a Photography Blog and a Caribbean online magazine. He then pushed harder creating an entire series of 30 bottle cap outfits which were featured at the BSoA (Bermuda Society of Arts) “Bermuda Fashion Collective.” He then decided to take on sewing and soon after released 3 mini collections at various shows around the island. Since that time his work has been featured in Canada at a Toronto Show and MCFW (Montreal Caribbean Fashion Week). Last Year was his second time showing at the BFF (Bermuda Fashion Festival) and received the honor of designer of the year award. His future is looking bright as he will be launching an entire line at Urban Cottage retail store this year. Among other thing he is pushing to create a section in one of the bands for BHW (Bermuda Hero Weekend) creating carnival costumes for next year. This year he launched a small resort wear collection at a NYC Fashion Show and is looking to return again next year. As a brand the long term goal is to take on the challenge of one day showcasing on the runways of London, Milan, Tokyo and Australia
