Conversations with Jhonnathan Vargas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jhonnathan Vargas.

Jhonnathan, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Art has always been a passion of mine. I loved drawing, painting, and creating things from a young age. However, the world of fashion always had my attention. I always wanted to stand out and be more creative in the way I dressed. So I decided to study fashion design and that was where my passion for the fashion world formally happened. Due to personal motives, I began to distance myself from the fashion world but I always kept designing even if it was for small moments of my life. However many years later, I was able to enter the fashion world again. Then I found a course where I could express myself and create sneakers and in that moment my passion once again started. The whole process of being able to create pieces with your own hands and see the results is a sensation that I cannot explain. It’s a unique sensation that I am able to keep repeating with every piece that I create. It’s a wonderful feeling and I am thankful to all the people that keep supporting me.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The most difficult obstacles for me was to believe in myself and lose the fear of failure. Finding out that creating a pair of sneakers is not as easy as I thought because it was difficult to find good quality materials and getting yourself known in an extremely competitive market. These were some of the obstacles that I faced and continue to face to this day.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a fashion designer. I specialize in customization and designing unique pieces. I am most known for the customization of sneakers and that I hand-make unique pieces. I believe what sets me apart from others is the exclusivity and quality of my work that is precisely crafted and unique.

What’s next?
My future plans are to create a studio and course where I will be able to teach others customization so that others will be able to explore their creativity. Also, work harder so that my brand will be more known and so that more people will be able to owe a product from my brand.
