ILSN :  Tell us a little bit about yourself?  What is your background in fashion designing?

Bad Aby:  I am a FIDM sf alum 2010. I started making prom dresses when i was in high school (starting with my own) and ever since then i was destined to push my design limits and cultivate my talent. I’ve always been kind of the weird kid that can’t really take myself seriously, probably really misunderstood but i kind of liked it that way. I think my fashion really reflects that.
ILSN:  Tell us about your website? ?
Bad Aby:  BadAbyDesigns.com is really just a place you can see my latest projects, link to my social media and stores and also get a feel for what my brand is all about. If you get ME, then you definitely get my brand.
ILSN:  When you designed the “Shark Bite Monokini” aka Sharkini what was your inspiration?
Bad Aby:  Well sharks duh. i was designing a few custom pieces for a friends shark week party, and after several sketches, the “Shark bite Monokini” was just born. I didn’t really think too much about it, except that i thought it was really cool that it looked like a shark, but as usual, i thought i was the only one to see its awesomeness. i was def wrong lol.

ILSN: Which TV shows have your outfits been featured on?

Bad Aby  I can’t even remember all of them, its been on CNN, WGM, Good Morning America, The Kelly and Michael show, just to name a few.

IBad Aby  I had made a custom costume of Chun li for a friend of mine for Halloween one year, and her friend who i think was in marketing for Namco Bandai games saw it and was so impressed that they got in contact with me through my friend and then i was doing all the cosplays for Namco’s TEkken 6. That project was super challenging but sooo much fun!
