Houston`s Fashion Scene Strikes Gold
The fashion world just got a little brighter. Houston resident Austin Martin is one of the hottest new names in the fashion world. He is currently wrapping up the creation of his new line of high-end fitness and athletic apparel and will be launching, Gold Plated Fitness, (GPF) November 2014 in Houston, Texas.
Martin said, "I was inspired to get into the fashion game because I like to wear and own clothing that no one carries in the mall or around town and in a cosmopolitan city such as Houston, that`s not so easy to do."
Martin has always been a big fitness fanatic and doesn`t like showing up at the gym wearing the same thing everyone else is wearing. "That`s where my inspiration came from, I want people at the gym to say, Hey, where did you get that shirt or I have to have a pair of those shoes, tell me where you got them."
During the planning process Martin said a few people in the industry have been mentoring him such as his buddy AB who owns Health World Texas, a personal training company and Sean Davis, owner and creator of Caught In Customs an urban clothing company.
Martin said, "Another mentor of mine is BStar, creator of Ingenious Clothing and owner of Houston`s latest hot spot, Sole Lounge which just opened recently in the Galleria area."
Martin is looking forward to next year`s Fashion Week, because he feels GPF will make a huge impact in the fitness fashion world.
"My future goals are to continue to better myself in the gym and to be one of the biggest independent clothing lines in Houston and hopefully end up in all the major cities and possibly around the world. I just have to take it one step at a time. I am not doing this to make money I am doing this to be able to see my own clothing line worn in gyms around the world. I think that this could be my legacy," said Martin.
