Concepts for style and design emanate from deep inside one's soul. Many times coming from the darkest of places where creativity lurks looking for a way out. A true artist strives to fashion something fresh with no boundaries and this is what Afsoon Lotfy has done her design house Skull ID.
Harkening back to her Persian roots where her father’s passion for fashion lit a fuse deep within her at a young age, she moved onward graduating from studies in German literature. Arriving to Boston in 1996 she immediately immersed herself in the world of high fashion and began work at the Divino boutique. Her path continued on with 10 years spent at the Boston Design Center honing her skills while keeping a pulse on the Boston’s trendy fashion culture. She has gained inspiration from such noteworthy designers as Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, Ann Demeulemeester, and Balenciaga, to name but a few.
For Afsoon, using skulls as an organic medium brought her a feeling of calm fascination that transcends into her creative flow. She began experimenting with design concepts and then jewelry which led her to launch her own high fashion line Skull ID back in 2010. The freshness and exclusivity which she infuses into her designs adds a level of excitement to not only the individual pieces, but also to their owners.
Just ask dynamic house duo, Steve and Chris Martinez. The brothers who hail from the Bronx, N.Y.; are bridging underground music genres, growing their fan base slowly but surely and infiltrating their way into your musical subconscious. These two game changers know a thing or two about urban edginess and individual style while rocking a DJ set wearing Skull ID in New York to Boston to Europe and back.
